This aerosol transmission is the concern when considering the effect of AC. “If an infectious dose of the virus can hover in the air long enough to be recirculated by air-conditioning, it could cause transmission in a remote place,” says William Schaffner, professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. But so far there’s little evidence of AC-spurred contamination. Though that may be because health professionals have been swamped with the crisis and taking care of sick people—maybe, as Schaffner says, “public health departments haven’t been looking, as epidemiologists usually do, for distinctive common denominators among cases.” … [Read more...] about Will air-conditioning help spread the coronavirus?

Black health is rife with this kind of sequelae, medical conditions that beget a string of other medical conditions. Black Americans, many of whom live in neighborhoods deprived of quality food access, have higher rates of diabetes than white Americans, again putting them at greater risk of contracting coronavirus. They are also disproportionately represented among prison populations. It should come as no surprise that Black Americans have taken the hardest hit from the coronavirus. American Public Media’s Research Lab found that Black Americans represent 25% of coronavirus-related deaths in 40 states and the District of Columbia, despite comprising only 13% of the U.S. population. In 13 states plus the District of Columbia, “Black residents’ share of the deaths exceed their share of the population by 10 to 31 percentage points,” the report notes, calling these discrepancies exceptionally large. Although many coronavirus cases have not been identified by race, a … [Read more...] about Will the protests spread COVID-19? The police response is the more likely culprit

"Despite its size, it has grown faster than its next largest peer (LIC Housing Finance – five-year retail AUM CAGR of 9 percent). Importantly, growth over the last three to four years has been driven by volumes rather than value, which is a positive," said the brokerage which expects this trend to continue, especially given the strong momentum in the Affordable Housing Finance segment – 36 percent of loan approvals by volume are toward the Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) and Low Income Group (LIG) segments. … [Read more...] about Motilal Oswal bullish on HDFC, expects firm to see lower competitive intensity in HFCs
HDFC is well-placed in the current environment to capture profitable market share. The company has access to low cost of funds, a strong ALM position, comfortable leverage, and adequate provisioning on the balance sheet. While the Tier-I ratio is healthy at 16.6%, it is likely to improve further with the proposed INR140b capital raise and stake sale in the Insurance business. This would help HDFC face any contingency, fund its own growth requirement, and further capture any inorganic opportunities at the parent (portfolio buyouts) and subsidiary levels (M&A opportunities). The share of retail customers (by value) that availed moratorium declined ~700bp in the second phase v/s the first phase. On the other hand, the share of corporate loans under moratorium remains high at 40%. However, we derive comfort from the fact that in the past four years, HDFC has quadrupled its provision buffer to INR110b; thus, its provisions now exceed its outstanding GNPLs.
