..."Donate" and "drug companies" are not often found in the same sentence. But, in this case, it is true, as several companies have offered up staggering amounts of the drug chloroquine (and other variations), a malaria drug developed in the 1930s, pending approvals on its effectiveness in combating the COVID-19 global scourge.

Amneal, Bayer, Novartis, Mylan and Teva are among those pledging hundreds of millions of doses of the drug, which is not currently approved as a treatment for COVID-19, to governments and hospitals. That has not stopped the field use of the drug by desperate physicians and the launch of scores of clinical trials across the world. Anecdotal results have been promising, but firm dosing guidelines and projected outcomes have not yet been established.

There has been a run on the drug in pharmacies across the world as scores of people secured prescriptions for its off-label use. New restrictions have popped up to safeguard the existing supply for testing and monitored use....

...There was a saying that when the U.S. sneezed, Australia would catch a cold. What happens when China, Australia's biggest export partner, catches a virus? The recent outbreak of COVID-19 is hurting the demand for the countries top three exports: iron ore, coal and education.

The coronavirus outbreak has created a complexity on Australian energy and mineral shipments. The Australian government has imposed a 14-day quarantine on vessels that leave mainland China after 1 February bound for Australian ports. This has caused delays for vessels arriving from China to Australia mineral-loading terminals in Western Australia, Northern Territory and North Queensland. On the other hand, with the shutdown of a majority ports in China and a half-paralysed logistic industry in the country has delayed the shipments too.

Australia's major iron ore players, BHP, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals, have not yet reported on any major disruption to demand or shipments due to the virus outbreak. But both BHP and Rio Tinto are in talks with its Chinese customers to delay shipments and are prepared for some short-term impacts due to supply chain issue. BHP also mentioned that the demand for resources could be hit by the virus in China unless the epidemic is contained by the end of March.

China's domestic coal mines are struggling to ramp up production due to the ongoing epidemic. This situation may seem positive for Australia coal miners, but in reality, it may be challenging to take this advantage due to logistic issues....
