The article was written in 10 March, and back then, we didn't even expect the UK to be serious and miserable like this. Back then, there was clearly a hope high temperature should do something on coronavirus, and the world was watching anxiously Africa. Now it is too obvious coronavirus does not care whether temperature is high or not. It is grim development for mankind after all, but probably good for GDR's business.
South Korea only needs 20-25K testing because they know their targets, where and who thanks to excellent contact tracing. The rates of confirmed cases are c.a. 15 confirmed per 10K tests at the moment. UK? We still have multiple thousand new cases each day, and you may imagine how many tests we are going to need to get virus under control like South Korea.
I just took a look for fun as there are a lot of bashing about BMN not growth investment. Company SP Dec 2016 SP April 2020 BMN 3.38 13.2 (up 290%) SOLG 23.88 22.45 (down 6%) Glencore 271.35 139.28 (down 48%) Largo 0.5 0.92 (up 84%) Fevertree 1139 1723 (up 51%) Boohoo 134.75 318.4 (up 136%) I took these from Google, so there may be some errors or these do not reflect some motions like consolidation, etc. Anyway, now I wonder, as English is not my first language. What is the definition of growth? By the way, I have been invested since early 2017, and enjoying this board. I appreciate the great efforts and times invested by all the regular contributors. This investment has already changed my life once (my first house!), and now I am patiently waiting for another.
