Andrew Collier, managing director of Orient Capital Research in Hong Kong and author of Shadow Banking and the Rise of Capitalism in China, in re:  The effect of the coronavirus epidemic on Hong Kong: shares in mainland toilet-paper factories fell as  surgical masks, hand sanitizer, toilet paper and even rice became scarce. Trade wars, protests, now the virus. Mild panic because no one knows where this is headed Many people are not leaving home much; activities curtailed.  As usual, Carrie Lam fails to rise to the challenge of the virus.  S&P global: disrupt automobile supply chain. Mainland committee of nine has exactly one health-care practitioner. Bad virus reporting on Mainland; good or questionable numbers of the ill in Hong Kong.
