Coronavirus cases are on the rise in Europe and in the United States, and former FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb says things stateside are likely to get worse before they get better. Big tech is gearing up for a big week; major players are expected to report quarterly earnings, and the CEOs of Alphabet, Facebook, and Twitter are slated to testify before the Senate Commerce Committee to discuss their content liability shield known as Section 230. Ellie Wheeler, partner at the venture capital firm Greycroft, expects a standout quarter for these tech companies, and says despite regulatory scrutiny, they’ll continue to outperform.
