Smoking, drinking and general poor health are some of the factors that could explain why more men seem to be dying from coronavirus than women

Trump says by Easter he wants packed churches all over our country…I think it’ll be a beautiful time,” while the US passes 50,000 cases and counties and states announce closings, and a growing number of infections and deaths.

The US has crossed 50k coronavirus cases. The WHO says the US may be the next epicenter.
It is important also to note this number is vastly underreported as most states outside NY are conducting limited testing.
Imagine how sociopathic to even consider return to work now.

=============

The humanitarian costs of the coronavirus outbreak continue to mount, with more than 414,000 people infected globally. The number of people confirmed to have died as a result of the virus has now surpassed 18,500. 
The virus’s proliferation has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, meaning it is spreading rapidly in different parts of the world. More than 180 countries have confirmed cases so far. 
The epicentre of the coronavirus is now Europe, with the largest number of confirmed cases in Italy, and death tolls growing more quickly in Italy and Spain than they did in China at the same stage of the outbreak.

In many countries one or a small number of regions have borne the brunt of the virus. Lombardia has eclipsed Wuhan as the most badly affected region in the world, and in Spain Madrid could soon surpass even that.

US states also show very different trajectories. Washington saw the first outbreak in the US, but its death toll has risen relatively slowly since then. New York’s mortality curve is much steeper.
In most western countries case numbers have been increasing by about 33 per cent a day, a sign that other countries may soon be facing the same challenge as Italy.
The Asian city-state of Singapore and the territory of Hong Kong are on a different trajectory in terms of the growth in case numbers. The rate of increase has so far been relatively contained through rapid and strict measures.

There have now been at least 100 confirmed cases recorded in 78 countries around the world.

The FT is mapping the virus and its economic impact as it spreads. Check back for our up-to-date figures.

The data for this map comes from a dashboard maintained by the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science Engineering, which has combined data from the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, the Chinese Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It also incorporates data from the Chinese medical community website DXY, which aggregates live situation reports from the Chinese National Health Commission and local CCDC.
Case numbers have now passed 100 in 35 European countries. The region now accounts for 75% of new daily cases.
China’s slowdown due to the coronavirus outbreak has been pronounced and consequential for the global economy. In order to track these changes, the Financial Times has constructed its own measure of the slowdown and nascent recovery in the Chinese economy. 
Official data lags behind activity since it is mostly monthly, and China’s data is sometimes viewed as open to political manipulation.
Using Wind’s financial database, we have compiled a weighted index of six daily, industry-based data series.
The measures of the domestic economy include real estate floor space sales, traffic congestion within cities, and coal consumption in major power plants. Trade activity is represented by container freight. 
Two other indices, which have been given a lesser weighting, provide social and environmental context: box office numbers from Chinese cinemas – a good proxy on consumer activity – and air pollution in the ten largest cities.
The FT has a dedicated economic impact tracker page where you can keep up to date with various metrics of economic activity.
