It’s always been the economy, stupid!

Covid-19 pandemic provided the best opportunity for human race to pause and reflect, before the serious stuff…

Cost of COVID “Candemic”

“New Zealand’s spending on welfare support, and the extent of its quantitative easing, are significantly higher as a measure of gross domestic product (GDP), than other countries that have been more affected by Covid-19, Treasury data shows.”

Costs as a fraction of GDP

  • New Zealand welfare support: 20 per cent of GDP.
  • Central bank quantitative easing: just under 20 per cent of GDP.

US jobless claims: COVID-19 pandemic  has put 39 million out of work

Up to two-thirds of the entire US workforce has been adversely affected: Independent experts

Sent by Alan

US weekly jobless claims hit 2.4 million, for the week ending May 16, bringing the 9-week total to almost 39 million. That’s more than the about 37 million people that filed unemployment insurance claims during the entire Great Recession, which lasted for about 18 months.

The US economy lost a record 20.5 million jobs in April and saw the unemployment rate triple to 14.7% as business was halted and consumers were told to shelter in place to contain Covid-19 epidemic.

The worst weekly job-loss record during the great recession was about 665,000 people who filed for unemployment insurance.

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has projected that job losses would reach 47 million in the second quarter and lead to an unemployment rate of 32%.

Overcrowded cities:

Globally, about 1,200 cities have more than 500,000 inhabitants. Some 600 of the “habitats for evil” are populated by a million or more people.

However, only two-thirds of the cities are at high risk of exposure to the usual natural disasters: floods, droughts, cyclones, landslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions…  Blog Reader

Japan’s Economy Fell Into Recession in First Quarter of 2020

World’s third-largest economy shrank an annualized 3.4% in the January-March period

TOKYO—Japan’s economy fell into a recession by one common definition in the first quarter of 2020, with worse expected in the current quarter.

The world’s third-largest economy after the U.S. and China shrank an annualized 3.4% in the January-March period, pushed down by the initial effects of the coronavirus pandemic. That followed a revised 7.3% contraction in the previous quarter that was triggered by an increase in the national sales tax. Two straight quarters of contraction is one definition of a recession.

Global Virus Updates: Japan Plunges Into Recession…

Health experts say the world could be months, if not years, away from having a vaccine available to everyone, and they have warned that easing restrictions too quickly could cause the virus to rebound

Japan’s economy plunged into recession in the first quarter as the coronavirus pandemic squelched business activity, while leaders in the U.S. and Europe are weighing the risks and rewards of lifting COVID-19 restrictions knowing that a vaccine could take years to develop.

China, which reported just seven new cases on Monday, maintained tighter social distancing rules in parts of the northeastern province of Jilin after a cluster of cases of unknown origin turned up in the area. Two of the new cases were in Jilin and residents were being required to show certificates of health, including a recent negative nucleic acid test, if they wished to leave Jilin city, the province’s second-largest metropolis, state media reported.

In other parts of the country, restrictions have been gradually lifted and many in Beijing, where no cases have been reported in weeks, have stopped wearing masks outdoors, although most establishments still require they do so when indoors and on public transport. Despite reopening moves, central government petition offices in Beijing, where people come from across the country to register complaints, will remain closed for the time being.

Japan’s Cabinet Office reported Monday a drop of 3.4% annual pace in seasonally adjusted real gross domestic product, and fears are growing that worse times may lie ahead.

TOKYO—Japan’s economy fell into a recession by one common definition in the first quarter of 2020, with worse expected in the current quarter.

That followed a revised 7.3% contraction in the previous quarter that was triggered by an increase in the national sales tax. Two straight quarters of contraction is one definition of a recession.

Japan is extremely vulnerable to repercussions from the pandemic given its dependence on trade with both China and the U.S.

The coronavirus has infected over 4.7 million people and killed more than 315,000 worldwide, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University that experts say under counts the true toll of the pandemic.

Condoms were first freely available at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea, in an effort to prevent the spread of HIV.

“The distribution of condoms continued from there, as tens of thousands of free condoms grew to a height of 450,000 condoms at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.”

Some 2,925 athletes from 92 countries set a record for the largest number of competitors in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Olympic athletes received a record-breaking 110,000 condoms, or more than 37 condoms per athlete — the most of any previous Winter Olympics — that year in PyeongChang.

COVID-19 Impact: “It’s the economy, stupid!”

US jobless claims: Coronavirus has put 33.5 million out of work

At least 50% of the entire workforce has been adversely affected: Independent experts

“Nearly 3.2 million laid-off workers applied for unemployment benefits last week as the business shutdowns caused by the viral outbreak deepened the worst U.S. economic catastrophe in decades.

“Roughly 33.5 million people have now filed for jobless aid in the seven weeks since the coronavirus began forcing millions of companies to close their doors and slash their workforces. That is the equivalent of 1 in 5 Americans who had been employed back in February, when the unemployment rate had reached a 50-year low of just 3.5%.”

April jobs report is expected “to be the worst since modern record-keeping began after World War II. The unemployment rate is forecast to reach [between 16% and 25%,] the highest rate since the Great Depression, and economists estimate that 21 million jobs were lost last month. If so, it would mean that nearly all the job growth in the 11 years since the Great Recession ended has vanished in a single month.”

USA (1,190,000 cases; 69,000 deaths)*, Spain (250,000; 25,500), Italy (211,000; 29,000 ), UK (187,500; 28,500), France (170,500; 25,000), Germany (167,000; 7,000), Russia (135,000; 1,500)Turkey (126,500; 3,500), Brazil (103,000; 7,500)  Iran (98,500; 6,500), China (83,964; 4,637 -JHU), Canada (60,000; 4,000), Belgium (55,000; 8,000), Netherlands (45,000; 5,056) and India (No reliable stats available).

  • India is projected to be one of the global hotspots for the future growth of  COVID-19 pandemic.

*[Rounded to the nearest 1,000 for infections, and nearest 100 for the deaths.]

The following Forecast is based on virus propagation models for COVID-19 named here as “SVPM-20” which were created by a small team of super smart individuals.

Global Forecast: During the first phase of the pandemic about 13 million cases of COVID-19 could occur globally, resulting in at least 900,000 fatalities, through March 2021, assuming no reliable cure or effective vaccine has been be made available on a large scale.

US Forecast: 3.3 million cases of infection resulting in 164,000 fatalities through December 2020, when the daily cases of new infections could fall to low double digits, assuming no cure or vaccine.

The First Wave of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic – Update

The coronavirus COVID-19 is affecting at least 210 countries and territories around the world and scores of cruise ships (international conveyances) including The Diamond Princess, Holland America’s Zaandam, MS Braemar, the Grand Princess, the Regal Princess, the World Dream, the Ruby Princess…

[Editor’s notes:
1. The actual number of COVID-19 cases and the death figures could be several times higher than those quoted by the authors.
2. The registered cases in China are either massively under-reported, or most of the Wuhan population were subjected to intentional outbreaks of non-lethal formulation of the virus as a means of “secret vaccination” prior to the actual COVID-19 outbreak.
3. If COVID-19 is a secret weapon manufactured by China, then the next, much deadlier phase of the germ warfare should be expected to break out within the next 6 to 18 months.]

Known Global Cases [as of posting]
Coronavirus Cases: 2,726,000
Deaths: 191,200
Active Cases: 1,788,954

Top ten countries with the highest numbers of known cases:
USA (887,000 cases; 50,250 deaths), Spain (213,000; 22,200), Italy (190,000; 25,600 ), France (158,500; 22,000), Germany (153,500; 5,600), UK (138,500; 19,000), Turkey (102,000; 2,500), Iran (87,500; 5,500), China (83,884; 4,636 -JHU), Russia (63,000; 600).

What the blog said:

[March 8, 2020] A small team of super smart individuals have developed several virus propagation models for COVID-19 named here as “SVPM-20”.

The SVPM-20 report presenting the simulated scenarios was redacted, summarized and reworded to protect the developers’ identities.

Developer’s Notes:

Enhanced results were obtained by comparing the SVPM-20 calculations to the data obtained from

4. Propagation of the COVID-19 in

  • China
  • Italy

The variation in COVID-19 area mortality and morbidity rates suggest the presence of multiple strains of the virus.

  • At least 3 strains of coronavirus may currently be spreading globally.

COVID-19 Global Outbreak

as of March 08, 2020 @ 10:00 UTC [publicly available data]

Global Coronavirus Cases: 107,500 [Reported cases only]

  • Reported Deaths: 3,650
  • Currently hospitalized/quarantined: 43,000 people including 6,100 patients in a critical condition.
  • No of countries, territories and conveyance: 106  [includes two cruise ships, Diamond Princes and Grand Princess, as separate counts.]
  • Top 12 worst hit countries: China,S. Korea, Italy, Iran, France, Germany, Diamond Princess, Spain, Japan, WMTBR*, Switzerland and UK.

Global growth factor for daily new cases: 1.07 [ indicates exponential growth, based on the reported data]

The developers were asked to run simulated scenarios and calculate the propagation of COVID-19 in various areas including

i) Global

ii) The Zombie Democracy

iii)*The World’s Most Toxic Banana Republic (WMTBR). The current calculations are as follows:

No. of COVID-19 infection as of March 08, 2020 @ 10:00 UTC

i) Global: 160,000 cases [WCS: 250,000 incidents]
ii) The Zombie Democracy: 1,500 cases
ii) WMTBR: 20,000 cases   [Projected to be the next global hotspot for the outbreak of multiple strains of COVID-19]

Models show major discrepancies in the reporting of infection propagation in multiple countries versus the simulations. The worst cases are the WMTBR, Japan, New Zealand….
