pandemic news from trusted sources around the globe.
The United States - as well as numerous countries around the globe - continue to accumulate massive numbers of confirmed infections and, very sadly, more deaths, from COVID-19.
The Washington Post published an update as the USA approaches 4million confirmed coronavirus cases. An excerpt from the update says,
"Positivity rates are at alarming levels in numerous states, hospitalizations are soaring, and more than 1,100 new coronavirus deaths were reported across the United States on Wednesday, marking the first time since May 29 that the daily count exceeded that number, according to Washington Post tracking. Texas alone reported a state-record 197 new fatalities, and the U.S. death toll now exceeds 140,000."
Along with those sobering numbers, the global economy continues to suffer as well. Focusing on my home country, according to a CNN update, the USA could be headed for even more problems with a housing crisis. Much of what is occurring to the global economy echoes what many economists have been saying from the beginning of the pandemic: until the public health issue is resolved, the economy will likely - and unfortunately - struggle.
Regarding the issue with housing problems, CNN explains,
"As many as 23 million renters are at risk of eviction by September 30, according to a report by the Covid-19 Eviction Defense Project and the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program. According to the report, those most vulnerable to getting evicted are undocumented individuals, low-income renters and renters of color."
Fortunately, there will be announcements soon regarding another round of economic stimulus to help businesses and individuals in the US.
