1/ 2.1 million more Americans filed for first-time unemployment benefits last week. Nearly 41 million people have filed for unemployment benefits since the coronavirus pandemic started in mid-March — the equivalent of one out of every four American workers. The pandemic has resulted in a national unemployment rate exceeding 14% – the highest rate since the Great Depression. This is the eighth week in a row, however, that new jobless claims have continued to fall from their peak of around 6.9 million. (New York Times / CNBC / Washington Post)

I’d like you to keep posting the information on Coronavirus 19 stats…in Maryland, our numbers are going up…and its not over yet as far as infections and death. Now is the time to prepare for the second wave, if it is coming. We’ll know in June…until then I wish you would keep the information on the numbers in your reports. And thanks for all you do, it is appreciated!

The big irony of this is, if Trump got his way (which he will not, this legislation will never get past the House), Twitter would ban him to avoid lawsuits over his lies & attacks.

Trump move could scrap or weaken law that protects social media companies
