One Million Coronavirus Cases, Market Oblivious

It’s a day we all knew was coming — over 1 million cases of coronavirus cases officially diagnosed in the US, over 3 million worldwide. Experts such as Scott Gottlieb, former head of the FDA, estimate that actual US cases are 10 to 20 times the reported figure. Deaths currently stand at 56,803 – about 30% of all closed cases.

Social distancing has slowed the rate at which new cases are being diagnosed. But, with many states reopening, a shortage of tests, no contact tracing, and no viable therapeutic or vaccine yet available, the number of cases and deaths seems likely to accelerate.

The market continues its oblivious ways with last night’s low-volume meltup good for about 1.5% so far as the Fed begins its two-day meeting.continued for members
