US Unemployment Hit A Record High of 6.6m From 3.3m Last Week--BBC by SocialFinance: 2:50pm On Apr 02, 2020
US jobless claims hit another record..

Death from convid-19 now above 5,000.

The number of Americans filing new claims for unemployment benefit has surged to 6.65m, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to upend the country's economy.

The actual figure is believed to be even higher as many people have reported jammed phone lines and difficulties with filing their claims online.

It's also worth noting that some kinds of workers, such as people working part-time, do not qualify for unemployment benefit.

The latest figure eclipses the previous week's record of nearly 3.3m people, according to Department of Labor data.

The rush, which is unprecedented in modern US history, has overwhelmed many state offices handling the claims.

Car firms have halted production and air travel has fallen dramatically. According to economists, a fifth of the US workforce is now on some form of lockdown.

So you know how to make excuses for other countries.

If I tell you that Sweden is not experiencing this same recession what would your answer be?

Another round of excuses?

Things not as terrible as this even in China.


What about convid-19 deaths? About 100,000 is projected to die in US

Note that Nigeria only recorded 2 death so far

Is Sweden experiencing the same magnitude of infections like the US ? Does Sweden receive over 230 million international travellers annually ? Does Sweden have the same population with US ...these job losses are very temporary and they will back up once the Economy is kicked started when this is over ..

Sweden doesnt have the same magnitude because they are better organised and have a better leader, full stop.

The USA started to experience job losses even in the very first week of lockdown, with as many as 3 million people declaring their unemployment.

Hail Trump.

The secret is an efficient agency mandated to manage its spread.

Buhari does NOT interfere with the experts and he gives them room to operate.

Yesterday, Russia donated medical aid to the US.
Imagine if this had happened under Obama.

More than 100,000 deaths has been projected and the economy will go into recession.

Trump clearly mismanaged it by downplaying it when he supposed to take action.

Trump is the best thing that has happened to America since Delano Roosevelt , y'all all saw how he made America a 22 trillion dollars Economy in just 3 years bringing unemployment to record low levels , the virus has only vindicated Trump's call for America to move it's production back home and the rest to India a position all Americans can clearly now see , the Virus has opened the eyes of doubting Americans to the threat of what Trump has been saying that's it's not safe to depend on China for American production and now Americans will rally more around Trump because he is the right leader they need for a time like this so he can:

1 . Kick start the Economy
2 .Bring American production back home
3. Resuscitate and grow the Economy .

As it's stand the Chinese should know by now the the 1.9 trillion debt America owes has vamoosed because America under Trump will claim it as compensation and even demand another 3 trillion dollars in further compensation so the eventual outcome of this virus will be

1 . Consolidation of American Nationalism
2 . Increase Unity between NATO member
3 . Landslide victory fro Trump at the polls
4. Forfeiture of chinas debt
5. Desizing of the Chinese Economy as the west cuts it to size.
6 . Emergeance of India as the new pride and giant of Asia as America and the west moves it's production there .

So an Economy on quarantine should be producing more jobs when most factories and production have been shut? Please you can Judge the economy based on these temporary effects of the virus like how I don't judge Buhari Economy under the virus , Nigerians have lost far more jobs but just that there is no data

This guy you dey follow talk already have his reasoning jaundiced by hatred. Nothing done in Nigeria is ok, even if Trump should wipe away all his family, he will still support him.

The curse of 5,% is a very terrible one. As many under it has vow not to see anything good in Nigeria.

Don't forget 'as he thinks in his heart, so he is says the Bible.

Definitely. Nigeria managed ebola better than Congo and Liberia.

We are just applying the same principle to convid-19, and volla it's working.

More people are getting cure and recovering.


However implementation of the high unemployment in America is clampdown on undocumented immigrants who may be asked to leave.

That Trump indirectly force or discourages Americans from helping during Ebola crises in Africa.

It will go down in history.
USA yesterday alone, over 29000 cases and almost 1000 deaths. Somehow, I don't feel anything for them unlike Italy and Spain.
