Scientists finally figured out what makes the coronavirus so dangerous

  - Scientists have a new treatment idea for the novel coronavirus that came about after they figured out what makes the virus so dangerous to our bodies: The pathogen camouflages itself after infecting cells to prevent a swift response from the immune system.

  - Researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center identified an enzyme the virus produces that tricks cells into believing the viral RNA belongs there.

  - This mechanism would delay the immune response and allow the virus to replicate inside cells.

  - Therapies targeting the enzyme could prevent the coronavirus from hiding in plain sight.

Why Intel’s pain is AMD’s gain

  - Chipmaker AMD rose over 15% on Friday as its primary rival, Intel, fell over 15%.

  - Intel’s stock fell after it said its latest-generation chips would be delayed, preventing so-called “7-nanometer” chips from appearing in computers until 2022 and servers until 2023.

  - Meanwhile, AMD’s 7-nanometer chips are currently shipping inside laptops. That’s because AMD outsources its manufacturing to TSMC, while Intel still runs its on factories.
