It’s alarming to imagine a call stating you have been exposed to COVID-19. Anyone who receives such an alert would understandably provide the caller with whatever information they requested if it meant preserving their health. But what if you just gave your personal information to a stranger, not a health official? It’s happening, and it’s making work harder for those trying to slow the spread of coronavirus. Recently, customers at some Idaho businesses were exposed to COVID-19. Public health officials established contact tracing programs to warn those who may be affected. Unfortunately, scammers are abusing those efforts for their personal gain. Better Business Bureau is seeing this play out by way of unsolicited texts, emails or social me.

Intuitive Surgical (Nasdaq: ISRG) helped pioneer the concept of robotic surgery. Its da Vinci machines – which generally cost $1 million to $2 million apiece – enable surgeons to perform more than 1 million minimally invasive surgical procedures (such as hysterectomies and prostatectomies) annually. Intuitive has had much of this market to itself for two decades, allowing it to build up a global installed base of more than 5,600 systems. That’s important to its strategy: Once health care providers become trained to use the da Vinci, they’re resistant to switching. The beauty of Intuitive’s model is that it makes most of its money off the disposable instruments and accessories needed for each procedure, as well as through service contracts –

The coronavirus pandemic is poised to usher in the biggest retreat for global meat eating in decades. Per-capita consumption is set to fall by almost 3% in 2020 to the lowest since 2011, according to data from the United Nations. Meanwhile, analysts across the globe are predicting declines not just per capita but for overall demand. That’s a dramatic turnaround for an industry that’s come to rely on steady growth. The shift is happening in every major market, including in the U.S., where it’s predicted that per-capita meat consumption won’t return to pre-pandemic levels until at least after 2025. There’s a swirl of factors contributing to the change. The coronavirus economic fallout means consumers are cutting down on grocery bills. Restaur.

U.S. stocks traded mixed as investors considered whether a rising number of coronavirus cases will curb the global economic recovery. Treasuries jumped, with the five-year yield touching a record low. Tech shares led declines, a dynamic that’s become increasingly rare as investors favored megacap companies seen as insulated from pandemic lockdowns. Most shares rose on the S&P 500 as the gauge fluctuated between small gains and losses after data showed record deaths in Florida, Texas and California from the virus. Gilead Sciences Inc. advanced after the company said its Remdesivir treatment cut covid-19 mortality risk by 62%. European shares edged higher. With record deaths across America, as well as fears of a second wave in Asia, the spotl.
