#China stocks roar on, with #CSI300 up ~20% in little more than a week as (official) #margin debt climbs Y150bln to touch Y1.3 trillion - levels only seen in the peak months of 2015's madness.
Worth noting a rejection here could mean the Jan'19 formation is complete.
As the money floods into #China #equities, #bonds bear the brunt. Wealth Managers are the MOMO traders de jour "Our company's mixed products can have 60% allocations to #stock, but now we're at 70-80%. This is a normal phenomenon [sic]," said one.

This latest burst has also spared #CNY the ignominy of setting a new 12-year high above 7.18, instead pushing it briefly back through the talismanic 7.00 parity. Ergo, either locals are repatriating to get in on the action or Johnny Foreigner is being sucked into the move.

So remember when I wrote this thread in an effort to explain why, coming from a mechanism of action perspective, #hydroxychloroquine (#HCQ) for #COVID-19 should be administered with #zinc?
2/ Well, this NYU preprint explains how the team performed a retrospective observational study to compare #hospital outcomes among patients who received #HCQ + azithromycin + #zinc vs. HCQ + azithromycin alone for COVID-19:…
3/ They found that addition of #zinc sulfate to the #drug combo increased the frequency of patients being discharged home, and decreased the need for #ventilation, admission to the #ICU, and mortality or transfer to hospice for patients who were never admitted to the ICU.

Over the past week I’ve been getting so many calls from friends all over asking me to diagnose if they are #COVID infected. Honestly I’m no doctor but just an early test mule on the virus. My Q&A typically ranges as follows. I hope it helps some of you from needless paranoia.
1/n First thing to iron out is the difference between #regularflu Vs #COVIDflu. I’ve done some research and found this helpful table for you guys. 90% of you have just a regular flu owing to seasonal changes. Don’t panic ! However if you’re in the 10% read on.
2/n Assuming all your symptoms are #COVID in nature immediately #homequarantine in a separate room. Testing is hard to get by in #MaharashtraBachao #Delhi so don’t bother waiting for your turn. Begin treatment for novel Corona while taking care of not infecting others around

Thread: Why is Zinc necessary for maximum benefit of #HCQ in treatment of #COVID19? I have continually seen misinformation as to WHY they work together. Ive seen cute little images and visuals made to explain, however they have all been inaccurate from a biochemical standpoint.
2) Being a stickler for accuracy, I wanted to clear up the mechanism of action of the two drugs together. Again, even the most advanced physicians do not know the WHY, often. I find it best when you don't know why, to just share your experience that it just works!
3) Below is a portion of the post from May 7 regarding HCQ and CD147 and Cyclophilin A. Cyclophilin A being necessary for the CD147 binding... well, as it turns out, what “allows” or assists in Cyclophilin A binding... ZINC!
Also explains how Zinc alone can be ok,

A Randomized Trial of Hydroxychloroquine as Postexposure Prophylaxis for Covid-19 | NEJM…
For those asking, 22.4% took #Zinc. Data in the Appendix Table S8. There was no effect of zinc on prevention. 15% with HCQ+Zinc versus 15.3% with placebo+Zinc. Overall, those reporting not taking any zinc had lower (not statistically significant) incidence of symptomatic #COVID
There is interesting data in the appendix. Unfortunately, the editorial writer did not seem bothered to look at the Appendix, but there is data on adherence, comorbidities, zinc, vit C, time from exposure, and the distribution of symptoms observed...

It has been a hard week for me watching what I consider to be one of the biggest health scandals of our time occur in relation to two affordable, widely available drugs that may offer potential benefit to patients with #COVID-19 (#hydroxychloroquine + ivermectin)
2/ Let me explain. First, I have been nauseous to see certain scientists in positions of great authority categorically dismiss the use of #hydroxychloroquine in any stage of #COVID-19 based, not off the literature, but off personal grudges either against Trump or MDs like Raoult
3/ These are scientists that have 100,000+ followers + speak to the media that shapes the globe’s #COVID-19 decisions…that, as far as I can tell, have not tried to understand the mechanisms of action by which hydroxychloroquine might benefit COVID-19. See

1) #Hydroxychloroquine is the new #RedPill.

We are living in a battle of narratives. My patients ask me to comment from my medical perspective about what our future looks like in this battle with #COVID19. I tell them I see two possible futures.
2) One future looks like what we have now. We are frightened, keeping physically distant, wearing masks, avoiding crowds, not going to movies or restaurants. The economy has soured. Unemployment is rampant. The only people working are those deemed essential or those...
3)...who can work remotely from the safety of their home. In this future, leaders say salvation will come in the form of a vaccine, but until the vaccine arrives, much has been lost. Businesses go bankrupt. There is uncertainty as to how much immunity the vaccine will...

1/ BREAKING - read entire thread!-Dr. #Fauci dismisses #Wuhanlab as source of coronavirus, contradicting #Trump and #Pompeo…
2/ Since he funded Chimera Virus there and said their would be a pandemic during President Trump’s term, it seems he may be trying to cover something up.
3/ BTW-wouldn’t he have known about the 2005 research finding and published study that says Hydroxhloroquine is an effective treatment of Corona viruses? The study was of SAARS-1; Covid is SAARS-2, and it has the same structure.

1) I'm reconsidering my opposition to anti-vaxxers and homeopathy, among other things. Hell, I might even give the young earth perspective another look.

I've been a seriously committed opponent of those viewpoints for over twenty years, and for (I think/thought), good reason…
2) You know, I wonder if (natural) tobacco is actually even harmful. Why is it such a big crime to grow it at home? 🤨 I know, I know, this is all nuts. Stick with me anyways, though, mmmkay? This might be fun…
3) I studied each of these issues at one time or another. I mean, I researched them hard for at least a year. (Well, except the tobacco thing; I never doubted that tobacco was harmful, and I still don't, not really.) …

I see some MDs/scientists dismissing #hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for #COVID-19 and that may be short-sighted. That's b/c studies on hydroxycholoroquine thus far haven’t considered a central mechanism of action by which the drug might help patients with COVID-19
2/ As far as I can tell, the main rationale for treating #COVID-19 with #hydroxychloroquine is this: chloroquine (a drug similar to hydroxychloroquine) was shown, in the lab, to be a zinc ionophore:…
3/ A zinc #ionophore is a compound that, in simple terms, creates a channel in the outer membrane of cells that allows #zinc to more easily move from the outside of the cell to the inside (it can help increase levels of intracellular zinc)

Time for a thread regarding the #CCP/China & their friends in America, including:
1) the #FakeNewsMedia
2) academia
3) elitists
4) #DirtyDems
5) sellouts in sports, business, etc.
2) Make no mistake, but @realDonaldTrump is at WAR with the Chinese Communist Party. By virtue of the fact that #Trump is president of the United States of America, #WeThePeople are fighting the invisible war alongside our president.
3) Until @realDonaldTrump became president, we Americans lost virtually every battle against the #CCPChina.

Our losing streak began during Slick Willy’s administration. Bill Clinton looked the other way when missile technology was sold to China through DNC donors & friends at

It's a murky situation. Nothing known for sure yet. Note difference between in vitro & in vivo
2/ There are a great many efforts to find medications useful in treatment of severe #COVID19; the ones named here are only some of the ones currently being tried or in formal trials. Note the attempt with protease inhibitors (Kaletra) too.…
3/ There is a good deal of enthusiasm among some medicos & researchers for the use of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine against #COVID19; caution: in vitro efficacy does not necessarily mean in vivo efficacy. Odd things can happen in vivo.…

🇨🇳 #China (1) | The question is no longer if, but how hard, the #coronavirus will damage Chinese economy (and its trading partners) in 1Q20.
🇨🇳 #China (2) | A blockage of 16 cities (~50 million people) coupled with the extension of the Lunar New Year holiday and prohibition for Cos to return to work soon implies that 1Q will fall below 6% for the first time since QoQ figures are recorded.
🇨🇳 #China (3) | The impact will probably broaden from retail sales, tourism/transportation...
