Weekly Wrap - Jessica Amir

On Thursday, the ASX200 closed off the month up 8.8%, the best monthly gain on record since the data set began in 1993. Not bad... almost as good as the All Ordinaries clocking off the month with a 9.5% rise - its best result since 1988. Plus, the University of Queensland and Gilead make breakthroughs in potential COVID-19 treatments.
