Than The Number That Has Recovered…
The information that I am about to share with you is quite disturbing, and it has some very alarming implications. One of the great mysteries of this coronavirus pandemic has been the widely varying death rates that we have been witnessing all over the world. For example, South Korea has had 8,981 confirmed cases so far. Of those cases that have been resolved one way or the other, 111 victims have died and 3,166 victims have recovered. So that would seem to indicate a very low death rate in that nation. But in Italy, things are very different. Up to this point, there have been 59,138 confirmed cases. Of the cases that have been resolved, 5,476 victims have died and 7,024 have recovered. Needless to say, that would seem to indicate a very, very high death rate in Italy.You will find more infographics at Statista
WHO said early Tuesday, as the US takes the lead in the number of new cases, the organization warned that it might soon displace Italy as the “new epicenter” of the epidemic.

Update (1535ET): As deaths in Italy re-accelerated, thwarting glimmers of hope for a slowdown, and President Trump reportedly backed away from his insistence that the economy re-open by Easter during a call with a crew of buy-side big shots (investors celebrated the news of the call by bidding stocks up to their highs of the session). Trump has repeatedly expressed his reluctance to keep the economy shuttered for more than three weeks on Tuesday, which was solid news for the market. A ‘town hall’ with Fox News late Tuesday replaced the usual task force press conference.
Amid all the chaos, the CDC just confirmed that there are now at least 50,076 cases of the novel coronavirus in the US. At least 646 people have died, and 100 deaths have already been reported on Tuesday.
The total includes cases from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and other US territories, as well as all repatriated cases.

Update (1525ET): The Vatican has confirmed the first coronavirus infections in the city-state, yet its leaders won’t shut down the holy city, which is surrounded by the Italian capital of Rome. The infected include one office staffer “and two museum employees,” Vatican spokesperson Matteo Bruni said at a news conference on Tuesday, the AP reports.

Update (1500ET): As Nancy Pelosi tries to wrangle the final votes needed to pass the second economic relief package in response to the coronavirus outbreak, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer has told CNN that another 2 or 3 packages could be on the way. The last we heard from Steven Mnuchin, he was telling Fox News that he hopes to secure a deal “tonight”.
Meanwhile, Bloomberg’s Kevin Cirilli has brought us a provision that Dems are hoping to insert into the package: Low-interest loans for six months if SMEs qualify. This would incentivize them not to lay people off. Politico, meanwhile, reports that Chuck Schumer believes he has secured $130 billion for hospitals and $150 billion for a state and local stimulus fund.
Over the past two days, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths has seen the largest jump on record, even as the number of newly reported cases plateaus in Europe, as New York and a handful of other US states ramp up testing. On Monday, the US was hardest hit, with states adding 10,168 cases, the largest single-day increase for any country outside of China.
And for the first time, the US recorded more than 100 new deaths in a single day, including the first recorded death in Hawaii. The individual, who died on Friday, was an adult from the island of Oahu suffering from “multiple underlying health conditions.”
As a result, at least 16 states have issued stay-at-home orders, which, once in effect, will impact 142 million people, or 43% of the US population, CNN reports.
A consortium of Italian fashion and textile firms will produce 50 million masks per month, covering half of Italy’s needs, said virus czar Domenico Arcuri.
“Italy does not produce masks, except for minimal amounts, we do not yet have the ammunition in our house. But we will and if other companies will join the consortium we could become self- sufficient in two months,” Arcuri said. China has been sending over another 14 million masks.
Alaska has ordered anybody visiting the state to quarantine for two weeks, as President Trump desperately warns that the US “wasn’t built to be shut down” and that extending the shutdown for longer than 2 weeks might do irreparable harm to the economy. German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz hit back at Trump Tuesday morning, telling
Around the world, there are 387,382 cases of a novel coronavirus, according to Johns Hopkins University, which is tracking figures from the World Health Organization and additional sources. On Monday, JH recorded the largest single-day jump in the number of new COVID-19 cases, with 41,371 cases diagnosed. The death toll rose by a record 1,873 – nearly 2k deaths in a single day – bringing the international total to 16,767 deaths globally. Source: ZeroHedge
Nobody really knows why this is happening. Scientists in China claim that there is more than one strain of the coronavirus and that one is more deadly than the other. So it has been theorized that the strain hitting Italy and other European countries is different than the strain that is affecting South Korea.
Alternatively, there are some that believe that certain pain killers used in the western world greatly accelerate the multiplication of the virus, and this is something that I wrote about a few days ago.
But the truth is that we really don’t know for sure why death rates in different countries are so vastly different.
With that being said, let me share with you the latest numbers from the United States.
At this moment, there are 34,717 confirmed cases, but the vast majority of them will not be resolved for some time.
Over time, I expect the number that has recovered to eventually greatly surpass the number that has died, and there are a couple of reasons why I believe this.
- For one, it can take many weeks to recover, but those that die can do so relatively quickly.
- Secondly, expanded testing will ultimately reveal a lot more mild cases, and most of those mild cases will eventually recover.
Having said that, the numbers that the U.S. is reporting so far are nothing short of horrifying.
If most of the country eventually catches this virus, it looks like the death toll could be in the millions. And at this point, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is warning that 80 percent of the population of his state will eventually become infected…

NEW York Governor Andrew Cuomo has warned that 80% of New York state’s population could become infected with the coronavirus and said the crisis could last as long as nine months.
Cuomo’s stark assessment came hours after Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin warned that the lockdown, currently impacting 80 million people across the country, could last 12 weeks.
Sadly, this is just the beginning.
Over on the west coast, things have gotten so bad in L.A. County that they have mostly given up on testing people…
Los Angeles County health officials advised doctors to give up on testing patients in the hope of containing the coronavirus outbreak, instructing them to test patients only if a positive result could change how they would be treated.
The guidance, sent by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to doctors on Thursday, was prompted by a crush of patients and shortage of tests, and could make it difficult to ever know precisely how many people in L.A. County contracted the virus.
In other words, we will no longer really have any idea how bad the outbreak is in the Los Angeles area from now on.
And without identifying those that are infected and making sure they are isolated, all hope of containing the pandemic in California is completely dead.
Of course many are hoping that the current “shelter-in-place” order in California will help slow down the spread of COVID-19, but what will happen when it ends?
At this point, many Californians are already getting restless. In fact, Governor Gavin Newsom’s wife seems quite concerned that her family will “run out of toilet paper, paper towels, and Kleenex tomorrow”…
Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the actress wife of Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom, sent out a tweet on Wednesday complaining that “we run out of toilet paper, paper towels, and Kleenex tomorrow.”
Her husband on Thursday ordered that all Californians stay in their homes except for certain essential excursions—on pain of being arrested.
The truth is that most Americans are simply not equipped to handle any sort of an extended crisis, and that appears to be what we are heading for.
On Sunday, the entire country was stunned when we learned that U.S. Senator Rand Paul has tested positive. Let us be in prayer for him and his entire family.
But pretty soon so many famous people will be testing positive that we won’t be able to keep track of them all. The attending physician of Congress believes that up to 150 million Americans will eventually become infected, and if that happens the virus will literally be everywhere.
That doesn’t mean that you should give up on trying to avoid COVID-19. If you doubt the deadliness of this virus, I would like for you to consider what a medical worker in Louisiana is saying…
“Reading about it in the news, I knew it was going to be bad, but we deal with the flu every year so I was thinking: Well, it’s probably not that much worse than the flu. But seeing patients with COVID-19 completely changed my perspective, and it’s a lot more frightening.”
“I have patients in their early 40s and, yeah, I was kind of shocked. I’m seeing people who look relatively healthy with a minimal health history, and they are completely wiped out, like they’ve been hit by a truck. This is knocking out what should be perfectly fit, healthy people. Patients will be on minimal support, on a little bit of oxygen, and then all of a sudden, they go into complete respiratory arrest, shut down and can’t breathe at all.”
I have heard from so many people out there that believe that this coronavirus is about the same as the flu.
What a huge mistake.
Coronavirus victims have told us stories of being curled up in a fetal position crying for mercy as “blinding pain” roars through their bodies. As their lungs fill up with fluid, many reports feeling like they can barely breathe for days on end.
The unlucky ones end up dead, but even many of the “lucky ones” end up with permanent lung damage.
Please do whatever you possibly can to boost your immune system now, because it looks like a large percentage of the population will be grappling with this virus at some point.
When New Jersey Health Commissioner Judith Persichilli was asked if she was worried about catching the virus, she warned that everyone will be infected eventually…
“Are you worried,” I ask, “that you’ll get the coronavirus eventually?”
“I’m definitely going to get it. We all are,” Persichilli says matter-of-factly. “I’m just waiting.”
I don’t believe that is true, and I believe that there are many Americans that will never catch the virus.
But without a doubt, it is sweeping across America at a speed that is absolutely breathtaking, and the death toll is ahead of even the most pessimistic projections that were originally issued.
A great plague has hit America, and we are still only in the very early chapters.
This is the moment in our history when everything starts changing, and the days ahead are going to be exceedingly challenging.
Over 100 Million Could Be In Lockdown In India
The headlines continue to shock.
Firstly, the number of coronavirus cases surged past 300,000 on Sunday with more than 13,000 deaths now reported worldwide.
Secondly, predictions about the fall out on the global economic outlook have rapidly gone from bad to worse over the past few days.
- In the US over 80 million people are now in lockdown,
- over 100 million could be in similar circumstances in India.
- In Italy, controls on movement have been stepped up with all internal travel now banned and in numerous other countries social gatherings have been forbidden and businesses have been closed in an attempt to prevent the spread of the virus.
In just over a fortnight or so, the debate among economists has shifted from whether the US will suffer recession to how big the downturn is likely to be. Our baseline base case now is a global pandemic as outlined by our colleagues here.
Central banks and governments around the world have moved quickly to staunch the wounds, but more policy support will likely be forthcoming.
On Friday, the UK Chancellor jacked-up the size of the fiscal relief offered to the UK economy aggressively – just over a week since he delivered his budget. The new measures include a pledge by the state to pay 80% of the wages of workers, up to GBP2,500 per month. Germany has announced it will raise EUR150 bln in new debt to bolster the economy, which is an abrupt departure from its culture of fiscal discipline. By contrast, the US’s Republican’s Coronavirus Rescue Package failed to pass through the Senate yesterday. Shortly after the vote, DJIA futures were again limit down. Democrats argued that the package overly favored corporations and didn’t go far enough to support individuals facing joblessness and a loss of income. Democrats warned that they would introduce their own legislation which suggests that it could be some time before Congress passes a bill. The Fed proved last week that its decision making was far less cumbersome than its government’s. On Friday afternoon the Federal Reserve Bank of New York pledged to continue offering $1 trn a day in overnight repo operations for the rest of the month. As a consequence of the central bank’s activity, measures of stress in the money market started to abate. This bled into the spot market where USD strength took a step back.
The firefighting has continued at other central banks. The BoJ continues to use its balance sheet aggressively. This morning it has purchased JPY201 bln of ETFs, matching the daily record it set on Thursday. As the New Zealand government takes further measures aimed at self-isolating the whole country, the RBNZ today announced a large scale asset purchases program through which it will purchase up to NZD30 bln of government bonds over the next 12 months. Bank of France Governor Villeroy has called for the Eurozone’s rescue fund to be activated to lend directly to states struggling to contain the economic impact of the virus. This could pave the way for additional sovereign bond purchases by the ECB. Eurozone officials are currently considering a plan that would see the European Stability Mechanism set up multiple credit lines for member states. A substantial widening of peripheral yields forced the ECB to take step up its policy reaction in an emergency meeting late last Wednesday. Fragmentation risks surfaced particularly in Italian BTPs – partly because Ms. Lagarde had stated during a press conference following the regular policy meeting that “the ECB was not here to close spreads”. Despite subsequent damage control, saying “whatever it takes” had lost its value, and so the Council had to put their money where their mouth is. The EUR 750bn ‘pandemic purchase program’ was certainly the action that the market needed to see, re-establishing the ECB’s commitment to do whatever it needs to. Italian spreads tightened from highs around 300bp back to around 200bp. While this is still quite a bit higher than the levels seen in February, the actions certainly stemmed the bleeding.
After the Fed’s policy announcement on Friday, the strength of the USD ebbed and severely battered EM currencies trimmed their substantial losses amid signs of stabilization in stocks (the S&P 500 Index closed above its weekly’s low on Friday). This, however, was short-lived as the early hours of trading on Monday morning have indicated. While sentiment remains negative at the beginning of a new week of trading, a period of respite/consolidation seems to be long overdue - especially after such a brutal sell-off as witnessed since the beginning of March. Also, various EM currencies have already reached levels considered as substantially overdone and somewhat disconnected with economic fundamentals. It does look grim and the outlook is negative, but if the US Congress approves without any further delay a comprehensive package to support the economy, the selling pressure on the EM FX may finally ease and we may even witness modest gains. Such a period should be considered as a short-term respite within the bearish trend across the EM that we anticipate to last for at least three months. We are nowhere near the turning point for the EM as the coronavirus continues to spread rapidly and the number of cases continues to rise exponentially outside Asia.
The Bank of Russia refused to put its signature on a rapidly expanding list of central banks to have slashed interest rates and opted instead to keep its policy rate unchanged at 6.00% on Friday. While it was in line with market expectations, we argued that a 50bps cut would be a more rational decision given that Russia is heading for a recession. The official statement included comments supporting our view that the CBR may seriously consider a rate cut due to worsening global growth prospects that will have negative implications for the Russian economy. Crucially, the central bank anticipates both domestic and external environments to be disinflationary. Unless USD/RUB rises well above the all-time high at 85.9573 to 100 or even higher - this would require urgent action including an emergency rate hike – we remain of the view that a cut would be a more rational response to the challenges the Russian economy faces in the coming months of a synchronized global recession.

Update (1520ET): As we near the end of the trading day, we've seen Michigan join the ranks of US states that have issued "shelter in place orders", with Michigan's requiring nonessential workers and businesses to stay inside or stay closed until April 13. That's effective Monday night at midnight. Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, after being criticized for Trump 2 weeks back for not doing enough, has issued the order, which will close the state for three weeks.
Michigan joins Indiana, which issued a similar order earlier. Both join the growing number of states ordering or strongly encouraging citizens to shelter in place. Meanwhile, as we mentioned earlier, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, meanwhile, announced a stay-at-home "advisory" for the state’s nearly seven million residents.
Now, 14 US states have ordered residents or issued advisories calling for residents except essential workers to stay at home.
Meanwhile, the State Department said it's monitoring approximately 13,500 US citizens abroad who are seeking assistance in being repatriated, a senior State Department official said Monday.
As of noon on Monday, eight US states had postponed primaries.
8 states and 1 U.S. territory have already postponed their primary elections amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Coronavirus ("Chinese virus") kills the oldest and has no respect for authority
Many of the most powerful people in the world are old, and coronavirus does not discriminate based on social status. Deaths are now hitting at high levels (not of death but of status), which can change the political conflicts of our world:
Now a global pestilence has erupted, and in Luke 21 we were specifically warned to watch for “pestilences” in the last days.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Have NOT Got The Memo Yet, “Pestilences” Has No Cure
Marian and Jan Hardcastle likedBeachMilk@BeachMilk·7hBill Gates wants to capitalize on the Chinese #Coronavirus pandemic by proposing that vaccines now contain nano-chips that will ENABLE YOU TO BE TRACKED.
This #ChinaVirus crisis is sure ticking lots of #NWO#Agenda21 boxes! Bill Gates Calls For National Tracking System For Coronavirus During Reddit AMAGates last week stepped down from the boards of Microsoft and Berkshire Hathawayforbes.com
The Coronavirus Was Most Certainly Produced by Crazy (Un-Godly) Men in Laboratories, WGO and CDC Knew All Along That the Coronavirus Was a Bioweapon, There're in Charge?
Well-known medical expert Bill Gates did an AMA on Reddit (transcribed here), in which he casually drops some chilling ideas into the conversation:
Eventually, we will have some digital certificates to show who has recovered or been tested recently or when we have a vaccine who has received it.
All in all, our freedoms are being swamped. Big corporations and states alike are setting boundaries on individual rights on a flimsy pretext.
Is anyone in the media reporting that? Of course not. Instead, we’re getting fawning celebrity-based drivel like this in the Independent, trying to convince us “we’re all in this together”, or weasel-worded nonsense like this from Jonathan Freedland in The Guardian where he mourns Johnson’s “libertarian” spirit and reluctance to impose social control. That would be the mass-surveilling, drone executing, war-supporting type of libertarian. A crass and obvious example of narrative management.
