Dave (00:36 ):







All right, folks, welcome to Investing for Beginners,

podcast 142 tonight. Andrew and I are going to answer some listener questions.

We got some fantastic ones recently, and we thought we would take a few moments

to answer those for you. So the first one is not a question, it’s an update.

Andrew and I have talked a little bit about Coronavirus. Wait, Andrew, and I

had some updates that he wanted to share with everybody. So I’m going to turn

it over to my friend Andrew, and he’s going to go ahead and take us away.







Andrew (01:06 ):







Okay? Sure. Yeah, I mean, I’m; obviously, it’s is

something that’s top of mind. We recorded at the time when the market was very

mortality rate of the virus was a lot worse. Like multiples worse in the Wu Han

area, which I believe is like the more rural part of China that possibly

doesn’t have as good of medical support system and, and things in place to help

people that do get sick.







Andrew (02:42 ):







So when you compare that with how it was in the rest of

China with the cities in China and things of that nature, from what I

for the rest of the world. But I think when you talk about the spread of it, I
