>warmer weather

It didn't stop it from spreading in Australia, or Florida's spring break.

>twice as contagious

That's unfortunate, but not really a surprise from what we've seen coming out of other countries.

I just think there are too many social variables to project accurately given the distance we have between now and a vaccine.

Nikki Haley: Focus on Your Governor, Not Trump

Unfortunately, that is the reality we are in now, a strong, early national response would have made a tremendous difference.  Half the governors are cut from the same cloth as trump, so we can't rely on them either.  DeWine of Ohio seems to be the one Republican governor who has his act together.   Here's an article that outlines the common traits of governors who have been handling COVID-19 concomitantly.

My county has compiled local COVID-19 data in a really digestible way.  They keep updating the page and adding features, but it is very impressive the way it stands now -- definitely worth a look.

Thanks. I'll forward the message to my wife, she's the one doing all the work. :-)

New Zealand got their sh## together early: New Zealand's coronavirus lockdown has resulted in only one death.  They have 4.8 million people.  Their nation-wide lockdown started early relative to spread in the country and it is a for 24 days -- twice the expected incubation cycle.

Jen is pumping them out.  We have three sizes available, small (child), medium (fits the ladies of our house) and large (head as big as mine).  DM me with your address and what you want.

There was a nurse last week that was in her 30s, fit, and had the virus attack her heart before she died.

Four types of Coronavirus Relief Loans:

Paycheck Protection Program
This loan program provides loan forgiveness for retaining employees by temporarily expanding the traditional SBA 7(a) loan program.

SBA Debt Relief
The SBA is providing a financial reprieve to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.

SBA Express Bridge Loans
Enables small businesses who currently have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender to access up to $25,000 quickly.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan Emergency Advance (EIDL Loan Advance)
This loan advance will provide up to $10,000 of economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing temporary difficulties.

EIDL Loan Advance seems to be the one that most will have the easiest qualifying for.
In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories are eligible to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to $10,000. This advance will provide economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. Funds will be made available following a successful application. This loan advance will not have to be repaid.

My dad's wife is actually a very experienced COBOL programmer.  She use to do it for Ross Perot, then did it for 20 years at Wells Fargo.  She's soon to be 81.

Economics & Investing / Amid COVID-19, UBI starting in Spain

The move has been prompted by the coronavirus crisis, but Calvino told Spanish channel La Sexta that the measure, once rolled out, will remain after the pandemic is finally over.
No date was given for the rollout, but Calvino assured that the measure will be launched as soon as possible, and that the government is working out the details.

It is not yet known what the amount would be, but it is expected to be geared toward families and complement other social security measures pledged by the Spanish government, to support the population through the crisis.

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s government rolled out a €200 billion package ($216 billion) last month to boost Spain’s economy, in line with stimulus packages introduced in some of the worst-hit countries.

Mortgage payments have been paused and struggling businesses will be given a cash boost as part of the “greatest mobilization of resources in Spain’s entire democratic history,” Sanchez said.

Spain saw record job losses in March, with 900,000 people losing their jobs over a three-week period since the start of the lockdown.
