Mens dødstallene nærmer seg 100 000 estimeres det nå at disse vil bli nær tredoblet til 288 000 i løpet av bare to måneder ettersom smittespredningen er ute av kontroll i 24 delstater.

Er kanskje lettskremt, men sjekk disse bildene fra Missouri i dag! Der hadde ikke jeg gått selv med munnbind som ifølge ekspertisen jo primært hindrer at den som bærer det smitter andre.

Koronaviruspandemien ser ut til å ha blitt en ikke-sak innen finans i USA. Kommer iallefall i likhet med opptøyer på 7-8 dagen i storbyene helt i skyggen av en tilsynelatende endeløs børsfest til tross for ganske alarmerende data fortsatt

(Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Tuesday reported a total of 1,802,470 cases of the new coronavirus, an increase of 14,790 cases from its previous count, and said that the number of deaths had risen by 761 to 105,157.

Litt småvanskelig å skjønne optimismen på børsene helt når man leser dette, for varer krisen til 2029 må man jo bare gi seg over i ren beundring over langsiktigheten i investeringshorisonten til de som driver børsene oppover nå. Imponerende, rett og slett!

The epic economic swoon that has followed the coronavirus pandemic could haunt the U.S. for as long as a decade, with the Congressional Budget Office pegging the cost at nearly $16 trillion by 2029.

The CBO, which had already issued a report forecasting a severe economic impact over the next two years, expanded that forecast to show that the severity of the economic shock could depress growth for far longer.

The new estimate said that over the 2020-2030 period, total GDP output could be $15.7 trillion lower than CBO had been projecting as recently as January. That would equal 5.3% of lost GDP over the coming decade. Already, the economic shock of lockdowns and a steep drop in consumer spending has rippled through the economy, with more than 42 million workers losing their jobs since the coronavirus brought the U.S. to a standstill.

"Business closures and social distancing measures are expected to curtail consumer spending, while the recent drop in energy prices is projected to severely reduce U.S. investment in the energy sector," CBO Director Philip Swagel said in a letter.
