Investors Chronicle (and Financial Times as a whole) is not the only company to have recently discovered that working from home is easier than expected. With around a fifth of the world’s population currently in government-mandated lockdown, including some of the busiest cities, many millions of people are staying away from their offices.⁠
⁠
This has been reflected in a big increase in demand for remote working tools. Microsoft (US:MSFT) reported that daily active users on its Teams instant messaging service had surged to 44m, with 12m new accounts added in one week. Slack, Zoom (US:ZM) and Google are also experiencing higher usage as businesses, schools and universities connect digitally. Demand for cybersecurity products and training has also spiked as experts expose phishing attacks by cybercriminals preying on people’s panic.⁠

(Free to read) We wouldn’t blame first-time investors for being spooked by the stock market carnage of recent weeks. For those with or without experience of investing, these are extraordinary times. The Covid-19 pandemic has shaken the global economy to its core, shutting down swathes of activity and pulverising stock markets.⁠
⁠
While markets may appear unapproachable right now, and it seems hard to look past the lockdown, investment is about the long term. And markets have a habit of surviving. First-timers just starting to think about investing to build a pension are in the best place to benefit from the challenges.⁠

(Free to read) Under the influence of COVID-19, what is happening to the UK property market?⁠
⁠
While Brits stew in lockdown, they are not moving house. Indeed, the government has now urged people to stay put for the time being to help limit the spread of the coronavirus. Completions have been put on hold and estate agents have shut up shop. The nerves which have started to trickle into the housing market after its post-election bounce are threatening to turn into full-scale panic. Banks are pressing for a full suspension of the market to prevent further pain.⁠
⁠
As a nation, we love to invest in property - a home will be many of our first investments. The current turbulence is therefore immensely concerning for many. ⁠

(Free to read) There are currently three possible long-term solutions for curbing the Covid crisis. The first involves a permanent change in behaviour, which could mean repeated bouts of government-mandated isolation – not especially appealing – and a continuing need for decontamination, good for the likes of long-standing IC Tip Tristel (TSTL), which this week signed an important product development deal (see page 46). Countries such as Taiwan and Singapore, which appeared to have beaten the coronavirus, are now seeing a second wave of infection as feared, and reimplementing control measures.⁠
⁠
The second solution is far more attractive, but requires a long wait: vaccination. If we can vaccinate around 60 per cent of the population we will build up herd immunity – without enough unvaccinated people to infect, the virus will struggle to spread.⁠

To ease the impact of coronavirus outbreak, the US signed off on a $2tn aid package in the early hours of Wednesday. The global bailout will have a sticker price of more than $4.5tn.⁠
⁠
‘That is a big number, even by the standards of recommended takeovers. And have no doubt that this is a takeover’, says one of our associate editors, Jonathan Guthrie, adding that coronavirus ‘is dispelling any doubts that ultimately the state, not business, is in charge’. ⁠

The Federal Reserve went all in yesterday, opening the taps on an unlimited asset purchase programme that will for the first time include corporate bonds as well as US government debt. There were other measures in a broad package of support for companies that goes about as far as it’s possible to go. ⁠
⁠
So over to Washington, and Congress is yet to agree on a roughly $2 trillion rescue package. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer claim they are ‘very close’ to a deal.⁠

The worsening of the coronavirus situation and a plunging oil price has seen global stock markets take on a new level of fear last week. Stock markets hate uncertainty and levels of uncertainty are very high right now. It has triggered a wave of panic selling and has left many investors uncertain as to what to do with their portfolios. We try to put some perspective on what’s going on.⁠

Your local Tesco (TSCO) outlet is currently a scene of wartime anarchy, ransacked of toilet roll, hygiene products and store-cupboard goods. Covid-19 has had a seismic impact on the operations of supermarket groups, prompting Wm Morrison (MRW) to cancel plans to award a special final dividend in its results this week as it looks to conserve firepower for the months ahead.⁠
⁠
We are waiting to see how the situation will be reflected in other supermarket groups’ financial performance. For now, we know that the early throes of coronavirus panic-buying did not translate into a February sales surge for all of the large grocers.⁠

Via @FinancialTimes “Food is like a religion,” Giuseppe Scionti, founder of Novameat, said, adding: “We have great ingredients and we have the technology. I don’t see why we can’t use technology to create great food.”⁠
⁠
After four years as a biomedical engineer specialising in 3D printing of tissue and organs in Barcelona, Mr Scionti had a radical idea for another use for the technology: creating food. This led him to create Novameat, patenting his “microextrusion” technology, in which plant-based ingredients are pushed through holes to form ultra-thin muscle-like fibres.⁠
⁠
Companies such as Novameat are leading the charge for plant-based start-ups, whose “meats” are made from legumes and grains such as soy, peas and rice. Meanwhile, some “cell-based” groups — which produce meat from animal cells grown in vats — are also at advanced stages of producing realistically textured products.⁠

Airlines are keeping their jets firmly on the tarmac in a bid to slash their costs, as coronavirus and a corresponding slump in flight demand threatens the viability of the industry.⁠
⁠
International Consolidated Airlines Group (IAG) said that it expects first quarter capacity, based on available seat kilometres, to fall 7.5 per cent compared to 2019. IAG, which includes British Airways in its roster and is impacted by the restriction of travel into the US along with suspended flights to China, will cut its capacity by at least 75 per cent for April and May. ⁠

Fear has the upper hand now the Covid-19 coronavirus is officially a pandemic. The S&P 500 index of leading US shares fell almost 10 per cent on last Thursday after London’s FTSE 100 closed a third below the all-time high it reached in January. The UK market has opened positively on the ominous Friday the thirteenth, but investors will remain cautious the response to further stimulus measures could wain once more.⁠
