obviously unprecedented and -combined with school closure indefinitely - should send the message that we don’t have time to waste with this.

Trains should be eerily quiet for a while

Can’t wait for the next MTA rate hike from this drop of ridership. It’ll be a dandy that’s for sure.

Just did the math again for the global mortality rate.  It has actually went up over the past 2 weeks from 3.4% to 3.85%.

Washinton State update
========================
March 15, 2020

Story 

Gov. Jay Inslee released a statement tonight that further expands protections against COVID-19. 

“Given the explosion of COVID-19 in our state and globally, I will sign a statewide emergency proclamation tomorrow to temporarily shut down restaurants, bars and entertainment and recreational facilities.  

“Restaurants will be allowed to provide take-out and delivery services but no in-person dining will be permitted. 

“The ban will not apply to grocery stores and pharmacies. Other retail outlets will have reduced occupancy.

“Additionally, all gatherings with over 50 participants are prohibited and all gatherings under 50 participants are prohibited unless previously announced criteria for public health and social distancing are met. 

“These are very difficult decisions, but hours count here and very strong measures are necessary to slow the spread of the disease. I know there will be significant economic impacts to all our communities and we are looking at steps to help address those challenges.

“Tonight, after consultations with me and with the Department of Health, King County announced that they will be taking these actions immediately. King County has been the hotbed of this outbreak and has the largest population center in the state. I have spoken to Executive Dow Constantine and I applaud their decision to act quickly. We will do a joint media announcement with more details tomorrow morning.”

Look for calls for the Banks to suspend mortgage Payments for 1 month.

 

Would not shock me if tax day changes to May 15th.

 

If you're going to stop the economy for a month then the Banks and IRS will need to have skin in the game.

 

 


agree. Hard times coming for tens of millions of Americans. God help us all.

As soon as the schools closed, I knew that kind of ban was up next for NYC, and I'm willing to bet Cuomo is forcing BDB's hand.

This is from an owner of 3 restaurants in Monmouth County.

 

Think of his bartenders, cooks, dishwashers, waiters etc they are in serious trouble.

 

My friend may have an out ( see convo) but many of these people live pay check to pay check.

 

Gotta find a way to get them $ , so they can eat.

Didn’t Mnuchin say last week on FBN he was already looking at pushing the deadline off from 4/15?  
 

I’m curious to see if the mortgage payment for 1 month happens in the US.

Taking a page out of Italy's bookbthis would be enermous for us. 

I asked this question a few days back after the Italians did this and you said it would collapse the banks and our economy, how do we get around this then?

Everyone in the private sector is terrified. 
 

i am not sure my firm survives this. I’ll be fine personally, but a lot of small companies are going to close their doors. That is a fact

I think you have to.

 

The administration has to have skin the game.

 

People in the service industry will not make their rent.

 

Print $ , hand it out and deal with the debt later.

You can't let a dishwasher starve for 2 weeks etc.
