1/ THREAD - Despite #COVID2019, let's not forget that earlier this month, #Lebanon defaulted on its sovereign debt for the first time in history. These graphics I made with Ahmed Barclay @bothness show visualise everything you need to know about Eurobonds.
2/ By the end of 2019, around a third of Eurobonds (foreign currency debt) were foreign-held. That proportion is now likely to be much higher. The proof will be when funds start reporting for Q1 in April this year...
3/ These bar charts show Ashmore's holdings for 2020 series at the end of 2019 (note >25% = blocking minority/effective veto). It is now likely that many other funds have over 25% in individual series. Read why in @dan_azzi's excellent piece for Annahar…

Tijd voor een draadje over de heldhaftige poging van Thierry Baudet om ons land te beschermen tegen het #Coronavirus en zijn eigen straatje schoon te vegen.
Ik begin op 4 februari 2020.
Kamercommissie Volksgezondheid wordt gebriefd door minister over #Coronavirus.
Afwezig Baudet
Terwijl de Tweede Kamer door minister Bruins gebriefd werd over het #coronavirus zat dr Thierry Baudet nota bene in Italië op en conferentie van extreemrechts.
Baudet kent zijn prioriteiten
Na 4 februari is de Tweede Kamer enkele malen door niet alleen het #RIVM, maar ook @UMCUtrecht en @ggdhaaglanden, geïnformeerd over het #coronavirus.
Grote afwezige het lid Baudet.

sono incappato in questo video molto interessante su un modo efficace di visualizzare l'evolversi dell'epidemia in un grafico bi-logaritmico

In sostanza si plottano i casi totali in funzione di quelli giornalieri, ciascuno in scala logaritmica. Durante l'evoluzione esponenziale il grafico si muove su una retta. Quando l'epidemia rallenta i dati si allontanano a destra della retta

🇮🇹🦠#COVID2019: sta facendo discutere uno studio di @imperialcollege che stima 5,9 milioni di contagiati in Italia.

Tra le altre cose, si crede che se i contagiati sono così tanti, la letalità plausibile si abbasserebbe molto.

È un errore enorme.

Ve lo spiego in due minuti.
Innanzitutto, lo studio di ricercatrici e ricercatori dell'Imperial College è qui.…
Primo. Attenti, il focus dell'analisi non è la stima dei casi totali, ma dell'effetto delle misure contenitive nei vari Paesi.

E si basa su assunti *molto forti* o *fortissimi*.

Anche così, l'incertezza resta molto alta.

Thread: #COVID2019 #Kolkata #Volunteering

Hi all, here's a map of Kolkata with wards marked out. 1-141

The current lockdown might last long & we have to prepare for the situation. 1 way to approach this problem is decentralisation. Stay with me. (1/n)
The map here lists all the wards of Kolkata with boundaries. We form ward level information & volunteer units. Add information about each ward, & some people from each ward to take ownership of their respective wards. This will help us resolve issues locally. (2/n)
Use this live map below to identify the ward you live in, and contact me so that i can share with you a map of your ward with you.

Then, you start adding information on essential services such as pharmacies, groceries that are currently servicing. (3/n)…

THREAD - The Curious Case of India's #COVID2019 infections

Consider this...

Let's try and Compare #Covid19 and #Swineflu

1) According to the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), During 2020, about 1409 people have been diagnosed POSITIVE with
positive of the H1N1 #SWINEFLU across India with 29 recorded deaths between 1 Jan & 1st Mar 2020 - COVID 19 deaths are just 19

2) COVID has R0 (Transmission factor) of 2-3 & Mortality Rate of 4.5%..
While Swine flu H1NI has a R0 much lower at 1.5 & Mortality Rate of 0.02%.
In 2009, SwineFlu infected about 700 million to 1.4 billion people and had a mortality rate of 0.02%

If one uses these numbers & back calculates for SwineFlu, for 29 deaths, India must have an infected base of atleast 145000. & India managed to detect Only 1409 <1% of Infections

Thread 👇#Lockdown
India is on the brink of another humanitarian crisis even as it is grappling with the mass exodus of migrant workers. Lakhs of truck drivers are stuck in limbo, stranded on the roads in abysmal conditions without food or shelter as no movement is being allowed.
More than 6 lakh registered trucks are stranded across the country, actual numbers maybe even more. I visit the largest transport hub in Asia—Sanjay Gandhi Transport Nagar. These drivers have been stranded for more than 10 days now with nowhere to go. Listen to what they say
Swamped in close quarters with no permission to move, the drivers are living with an eminent fear of either contracting the virus or dying of hunger. "Corona chodhho banda bhook se hi mar jayega," one driver says. #LockdownWithoutPlan #COVID2019

The Corona Virus travelled entire world from #Wuhan but it did not reached Beijing and Shanghai.

Can anybody put light?

Looks So Logical. After all Chinese Stock Market didn't crash. American and European Markets did.
Is about to reason along...
How to dominate the world quickly?


1. Create a virus and the antidote.
2. Spread the virus.
3. A demonstration of efficiency, building
After all, you were already prepared, with the projects, ordering the equipment, hiring the labor, the water and
sewage network, the prefabricated building materials and stocked in an impressive volume.
4. Cause chaos in the world, starting with Europe.
5. Quickly plaster the economy of dozens of countries.
6. Stop production lines in factories in other countries.

1. A forehead thermometer producer in #CCP ruled #China is talking about doing damage to the US hit hard by #CCPVirus in a very CCP way:

2... forehead thermometer producers which has 178 members, "Produce some fake products and sell them to the US. They (thermometers) should read 36.5 ºC when the actual temperature is 39 ºC. In this way, more and more American people will be infected. Let's see if...
3...they still have people left to go to other countries to harm others!"
After one member sends three laughing emojis, Zhang continues to say, "Isn't that a great idea? Without using one single solider, we make money, as well as make peace for the world."

NO TODO SON MALAS NOTICIAS. La OMS (@WHO) lanzó un ensayo médico global para probar (en serio) 4 medicamentos que han dado BUENOS RESULTADOS en algunos pacientes con #COVID2019. especialistas consultados. Claudia Cortés (infectóloga) y Nicolás Muena (virólogo). Vamos a ver: 👇
1.Cloroquina e Hidroxicloroquina: Se usan principalmente para combatir la malaria y para pacientes con artritis reumatoide. Es una droga de bajo costo que se ha probado en pacientes con #coronavirus en China y Francia con buenos resultados., aunque faltan + estudios: Q se sabe 👇
Aunque aún se está estudiando cómo la cloroquina podría combatir el coronavirus, según el virólogo @nicomuena esta droga evitaría que el virus infecte a las células y así evita que se pueda replicar. Incluso se estudia la opción de usarlo como prevención (no probado aún). Sigo👇

THREAD When the nature changes its course, migratory birds travel miles, in search of resources, either for nesting or food. They often move in unison. A similar pattern was seen in India's national capital New Delhi on Saturday - not in the skies but down below. #CoronaLockdown
As soon as word spread that inter-state services are going to take passengers to U.P., migrants gathered in thousands to reach the Anand Vihar bus terminal in the hope of reaching home. #MigrantsOnTheRoad
There was an evident coordination between the govts in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh & at the Centre. Delhi's state-owned buses took the migrant workers to the Anand Vihar bus station so that they do not have to walk till there. Delhi Police ensured people take the buses and not walk.

1/n #SadarPranam @kavita_krishnan to Ishvara within u & to other China Employees. @SrBachchan is absolutely correct & not a "Racist".

In this thread, I explain how #China has unleashed the #Covid is & what role @DrTedros has played.

Read the whole of History.👇
2/n China has been investing big money to buy out journalists including those from India. This very report in @guardian on December 7, 2018, reveals the facts so clearly.

One must read this whole report to understand the same. Consider it to be #Prologue.…
3/n Now let me take you a bit through the @WHO boss @DrTedros . You should know that he is the first non-doctor (he is Dr for Ph.D.) Director-General of WHO. This all happened for his loyalty to China being health minister Ethiopia.

#LoUltimo El general Cliver Alcalá Cordones, acusado por #EEUU de delitos de narcotráfico, junto a Nicolás Maduro, Diosdado Cabello y otros miembros del Cártel de los Soles llegará al aeropuerto de Westchester, en White Plains NY este viernes en la noche. De inmediato será
llevado a la prisión del Distrito para registrarlo. La lectura de cargos frente al juez aún no se ha fijado porque el sistema de cortes en #NYC se encuentra cerrado debido a la emergencia que hay en la ciudad por el enorme número de contagiados de #coronavirus. Dos fuentes
consultadas refieren que existe la posibilidad que Alcalá Cordones sea presentado ante el juez el día lunes #30Marzo o por teleconferencia durante el fin de semana. Alcalá contará con la representación de un abogado que le acompañará en el proceso judicial que enfrenta.

Hola @soyzen justamente, en mi análisis, para el caso mexicano, el “piso” ya se rompió en el momento que el precio “spot” de combustibles a nivel mercado internacional está por debajo de los montos tributarios, es decir, por debajo de los $4.95 mxp/lt del #IEPS
Ahí, los márgenes de utilidad se van aminorando paulatinamente, por las tendencias a la baja derivadas del #COVID2019 y sumando los bajos precios del petróleo.
¿Quiénes serán los primeros en resentir los márgenes disminuidos?
Es sencillo, es eslabón más débil de la cadena:
Ya que la demanda baja y la capacidad de compra de volúmenes a futuro es limitada; eventualmente éstos exigirán a los Comercializadores sostener márgenes, pero los últimos solucionan con volúmenes; cosa que un Gasolinero financieramente no pude permitirse.
