Chip shortage

 People are now talking about the "chip shortage" affecting the production of cars, mobile phones and a host of other products.

What is the cause of this chip shortage?

Provide statistics of hospital admissions due to covid

The Ministry of Health provide daily statistics of number of cases of covid infections - broken down by imported cases, dormitory cases and community cases.

I suggest that they should include an additional statistic - number of hospital admissions due to covid.

The current reporting regime scare the ordinary people. They think that each case will lead to a disastrous outcome.

I suspect that most of these cases in the community are mild and asymptomatic. They do not lead to hospital admissions.

During the past months, we have several hundred cases, including many imported cases, which do not require hospital treatment.

People do not die from the cases. They will die only from severe infection that require hospital treatment and intensive care that was not successful.

If the additional statistic on hospital admission is provided, it will help the general public to focus on the real risk and not be alarmed with the small number of cases that do not cause any harm.

We should also be aware of the harm that can be done to the economy, to the businesses, to livelihoods that can be caused by extreme and unnecessary measures to disrupt the normal daily activities.

We should also consider the adverse effort of the lockdown or circuit breaker on the mental health or financial stability of the entire population. This can also lead to an increase in suicide and family violence.

We need a balanced approach to access the real risks of health and the economy.

I hope that the ministerial task force consider my suggestion.

Election process in America

 It is very expensive and time consuming to carry out election in America. Yet, the process can be subject to fraud.

New York Times.
A few years ago, Bladen County, N.C., made national headlines. In 2018, Mark Harris, a Republican, beat out his Democratic opponent for a congressional seat, but the election was later thrown out and a new election was called after his campaign was investigated over suspicions of absentee-ballot fraud.
But according to some local residents, the authorities got it all wrong. They say there’s a powerful group still at work in the county, tampering with elections, bullying voters and stealing votes — a Black advocacy group, the Bladen County Improvement Association PAC. These accusations have never been substantiated, but they persist.

A disappointing drop in price for Nano Dimension

 I hold 4,000 shares of Nano Dimension (NNDM) at $7.58 USD.

The stock opened on 25 April at $9.00, up 10% over the previous close. I gave an order to sell the stock at $9.20. I thought that it could easily reach this price based on the strong momentum.
I was unlucky. It did not hit my target price.
The stock had since dropped to $7.34. The drop of $1.66 (difference between $9.00 and $7.34) amount to $6,640 on my 4,000 shares.
I will hold the shares and wait for it to reach $9.00 again.
