DID YOU KNOW?  87% of the total recorded cases in China have fully recovered around 79 days after it recorded its first cases in Wuhan. For the first time since the coronavirus outbreak started, China has reported no new domestic transmissions, a major milestone in the country’s fight against the pandemic. All new cases were from people returning to China. (Guardian) * Quoted figures from China have been provided without verification. Major reporting entities from the USA have been removed from China.
 
"We are facing World War 3 for 90 days. Get the money to those who need it most. People will be back at work the minute we can hire them again. It's going to be short and it's going to pass. The banks are not in any tremendous stress. A payroll tax cut is so stupid. Maybe they need to turn off the market for 2 weeks!" –Barry Sternlicht, Starwood Capital
 
DID YOU KNOW?  Those aiming to get a new mortgage — either to refinance their existing home loan or to purchase a mortgage — shouldn’t worry too much about interest rates staying this elevated, as they jumped recently due to long-term bond yields rising. Economists have said lenders will likely bring rates back down to an extent once they’ve worked through their backlog of applications. (Marketwatch)
 
 
DID YOU KNOW?  As if we needed any more terrifying Coronavirus news these days: it was announced that The Hallmark Channel will now play Christmas movies 24/7! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
