Even where the Government is testing like the blazes to cover its arse and con us into believing that its coronavirus response was sensible and proportionate, it is struggling to find cases. In the new 'hotspot' of Blackburn where there is mass testing, the cases are just 77 per 100,000. Of those found posititve, nearly all of them are asymptomatic so would not have known they had Covid had they not been tested. This testing is not saving any lives. The Government insists we must all wear face masks to shop, and continues with its various controls. However, it seems that everyone, bar the bedwetting teachers, can see the absurdity and pointlessness of these meausures. Now that PHE has realised how it was bodging the numbers and has been exposed for it, it is clear that almost no-one is now dying of the virus and pretty soon that figure will be down to zero...
Folks like our idiotic Prime Minister spook us with talk of a second wave, but that is all part of Project Fear. There is no evidence that one is coming. As such, with very few folks actually feeling ill, demand for tests has to disappear too. Right now, Boris face-saving exercises in Blackburn may generate some demand but that cannot go on forever. And the UK is not alone. If Covid started earlier, you are closer to elimination. Greece has seen 2 deaths in the past week, Italy had 15 deaths yesterday, Sweden (no economy-trashing lockdown) saw 0 yesterday and 1, 1 and 2 in the three days before. If you were hit by Covid later (Western and Southern USA), you are past the peak but in decline, albeit, at higher levels. That data alone tells you something about lockdown. Greece was uber strict from the get-go, Sweden was accused of murdering its own folks by the lockdown jihadists in the MSN (notably by the BBC and the FT) and yet these two different responses to COVID produced more or less the same result. But all that tells you that Covid is now heading into the rearview mirror.
Without the Covid hype, shares in Avacta (AVCT) would – allowing for new cash raised on that hype – be c40p. They are now 136p as the company tries to keep the hype about its test going. Now we are told that Avacta is to begin clinical validation of the high throughput COVID-19 laboratory test in collaboration with the UK government CONDOR programme. Fabbo. Frankly, this is like telling us that it will soon have a pregnancy test just for me and Cheryl Cole. It does not matter when the test is ready, for I fear that the demand for it is likely to be somewhat limited.
Now I realise that, as I discussed recently, with regard to Synairgen (SNG), there is a mania afoot and that has infected all sorts of folks including Peter Brailey and Malcolm Stacey as well as genuine Bulletin Board Morons. I have seen this before with healthcare stocks and it will happen again. But sure as eggs are eggs it will end in tears. That is the way of bubbles. There is no other end game.

The hot share tips given here are of necessity, general. They cannot relate to the individual circumstances of investors. Anyone considering following the share tips contained here should seek independent advice from a Financial Conduct Authority authorised Stockbroker or Financial Adviser. We cannot be held liable if individuals suffer losses through following share tips contained on this site or emailed out as free share tips. The value of investments can go down as well as up. The past is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Investing in shares can lose you part or all of your capital although the potential returns are theoretically unlimited. The difference between the buy share price and the sell share price for smaller company shares (penny shares) can be significant. Profits from dealing in shares may be liable to tax - the level of tax and bases of relief from tax are subject to change. Changes in the rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value or price of an investment in sterling terms if it is denominated in a foreign currency. Some of the shares recommended on this site will be smaller company shares. By their nature such investments can be relatively illiquid and thus hard to trade. And that makes such investments more of a high risk than larger company shares (or 'small caps'/'penny shares'). FiveFreeShareTips.com & its sister site ShareProphets.com defines a smaller company share as any stock traded on AIM or NEX or which has a market capitalisation of less than £300 million.
