Investing in covid related stocks

 I wish to give my personal pviews about investing in pharmaceutical stocks that are involved in manufacturing vaccines and treatment for covid-19.

Measuring the covid transmission rate

The Ministry of Health (MOH) reported:
As of 5 November 2021, 12pm, the Ministry of Health has detected a total of 1,767 new cases of COVID-19 infection, comprising 1,639 community cases, 120 dormitory resident cases and 8 imported cases. Amongst the community cases today are 284 seniors who are aged 60 years and above. The ratio of community cases for the past week over the week before is 0.81.
The fall in the number of cases today is likely due to fewer swabs being done over the Deepavali Public Holiday at Public Health Preparedness Clinics (PHPCs) and polyclinics.
I suggest a measure of the growth rate that can overcome the distortion caused by the number of tests carried out.

Horrendous management of Covid-19 infected family

Shared in social media. The system of communication adopted by MOH is chaotic.


Improve communication with people placed on isolation

I sent this message to minister for health on 4 October 2021. He replied that his ministry is looking into the matter.

They are not interested to hear my suggestion, or to use my experience.

I learned later, from several accounts, that the people placed on isolation had a difficult time to communicate with MOH.

My view of Tesla stock price

 Here are my views about Tesla stock price and hw it will affect my investment plans:

To bad investments - Sinopharm, Top Glove

 I have made two bad investments. They are Sinopharm (1099.HK) and Top Glove (BVA.SG).

I lost more than 10% of the invested sum over the past two weeks. I invested about $80,000 in each stock, so my loss is more than $8,000 SGD in each. Why did I invest in these stocks? What do I do now with these stocks?

Can the opposition parties unite to challenge the PAP?

 Many voters, who are disappointed with the ruling party (PAP) wish to see the opposition parties unite into a unified party or form an alliance to challenge the PAP.

Will this happen? What are the obstacles that need to be overcome?

I share my view.

National Security Law in Hong Kong

My friend, who has lived in Hong Kong for many years as a foreigner, did not like the national security law passed recently in Hong Kong.  

He visited my Facebook often and saw that I expressed views that are supportive of the China government.

He asked this question in my Facebook page - How does TKL view the restriction on freedom in Hong Kong after the passing of the national security law.

Access to the internet in China

Many people believed that China does not allow access to the Internet. Their citizens are badly informed about the world.

These people are mistaken. They are ignorant.
