Economic news

“Five million more Americans file jobless claims as Covid-19 downturn deepens – as it happened. More than twenty million unemployment claims have been filed in the last month across America. US initial claims hit 5.2m last week.

Another wave of grim economic news has shown that America’s economy is sinking into its worst recession in decades.

Another five million US citizens filed jobless claims last week, taking the total laid off since the Covid-19 lockdown began last month to over 22 million.

Economists believe America’s unemployment rate could have already risen to 15%, with further layoffs likely in the coming weeks.”
