Happy New Year to you all!As we enter the Year of the Tiger, all kinds of predictions are flying around. In fact, in the final analysis, there are two main focuses: Will the epidemic end?Second, and most important, will the stock market rise?I don’t think anyone expected the coronavirus to come and go like this.After the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020, we saw that the global impact was enormous, with 84 million cumulative confirmed cases and 1.9 million deaths.In 2021, we thought that the epidemic would slowly subside, but unexpectedly, two successive waves of counter-attacks led to twists and turns in the global epidemic. Finally, we see that the cumulative number of confirmed cases worldwide has risen to 290 million, and the cumulative number of deaths has reached nearly 5.46 million.This is a substantial increase over 2020.The question now is, in 2022, what will happen?The good news is that as the virus has mutated, from Delta to Omicron, it has become more transmissible, but its morbidity and mortality rates have dropped dramatically, as have the rates requiring medical attention.So, we see that in the United States at its peak, the number of confirmed cases a day was close to a million, but compared to the panic caused by 50,000 cases a day in 2020, this is almost negligible.That means the new virus could turn into a pandemic.This fits a rule of virus transmission, because the faster it spreads, the faster its virulence declines.Of course, this is our hope. We hope that the virus will play by the rules, follow the rules of transmission, and by 2022, we will have contained the virus, the epidemic will recede, and our society will return to normal.Author: Shuipi Miscellaneous Talk Studio editor: Xu Yunqian
