This was a very volatile week secondary to fears and political developments regarding the spread of COVID-19. This was capped by a large pop on Friday following President Trump’s press conference. During this conference, he announced a national state of emergency over COVID-19, which included several financial benefits. Overall, we had a even more quiet week on the FDA front as productivity has slowly ground down.
