CV Central - 4/7/2020 - "The bad news in plain sight, divorcing finance from the economy, and China."

Episode 47 offers a counterpoint to the optimism which is infecting the West and leading to dangerously premature conclusions.  New reporting from Spain suggests a death told double or triple what was officially recorded from Covid, more people in Korea are testing as reinfected, and we look at the suggestion hypoxia, a lack of oxygen, might be part of the problem resulting from the virus potentially interacting with hemoglobin, or red blood cells.  As promised, economics are considered as detail after detail shows how we're seeing the decoupling of finance from the real world of goods and services as we show food lines lengthen, grocery workers die, warehouses hampered, and worries grow.  Gold rising as stocks do the same hint at the fundamental disconnect.  We close with another glance into China where they are trying to internationalize internet kill switches as they claim zero infections in their military and charge Italy to get back the masks a more generous people once donated to the CCP.  From health to economics to geopolitics, the evidence makes clear this is only the beginning of what Covid hath wrought upon us.
