UK’s Boris Johnson Moved To ICU For Coronavirus Complications (Plus A Market Update)

He’s apparently “conscious and did not need ventilation”. Here’s the latest on Johnson, as well as a Monday afternoon market update…

(by Half Dollar) UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted into intensive care.

From Fox News:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was moved to the intensive-care unit of the hospital after his coronavirus symptoms got worse, a spokesman said Monday.

We’re only reporting on what’s pumping out of the MSM, not determining whether it is a fact or not.

Apparently, his condition has worsened, but not to the point of needing a ventilator:

Johnson’s office says the prime minister has been conscious and did not need ventilation. He asked Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab to deputize for him, the spokesman said.

Curiously, Johnson recently had this to say about his infection:

It was 3 days ago when he said “I have minor symptoms”.

Nonetheless, for those curious, ICU in the UK and in the US are similar in scope, which means it’s open to interpretation as to the exact level of medical care that’s needed and/or administered.

Simply being in ICU does not mean you’re hooked-up to every medical tube known to man, but rather, it could mean a lot of things.

In other news, the stock “market” has barely skipped a beat today:

Hurry up and “invest” in the United States while there’s still time!

Yet gold & silver have performed stellar on the day:

Are they telling us the stock market has it wrong?

Or do gold & silver have it wrong?

Here’s something to consider: Right now, the MSM is playing the “this is the worst week we’ll have, and it’s not even that bad” card.

But this designation (“our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment”) comes from the US Surgeon General himself:

Who shouldn’t even be called “Surgeon”, much less “General”.

Especially when he says stuff like this:

Masks are “NOT” effective?

How many people got sick or worse heeding that advice?

Regardless, the worst week is probably still more than a couple of weeks away, and we’re only really talking about NYC when we say that, as the death toll continues to rise elsewhere, so if it’s “not all that bad now”, or even “easing” as the MSM would have you believe, and if there’s all of this hope and optimism out there in the “markets” right now, that’s because the MSM is hiding the bad news for one reason or another.

To take the eyes off of gold & silvers’ moves today?

Gold & silver are bid, have been bid, and will remain bid, no matter what’s happening in the rigged casino otherwise known as the unbacked, debt-based fiat currency paper markets.
