There has been mixed news on the coronavirus (COVID-19) front, with the number of new US cases reported yesterday 14% lower than a week earlier at 56,000

“The rate of decline in confirmed cases appears to have slowed sharply in recent days, but this is likely a catch-up from last week, when extreme weather conditions depressed testing activity and, therefore, the number of reported cases Testing activity has not yet returned to normal but the rate of fall has slowed; we expect a rebound during this week, ”suggested Ian Shepherdson of Pantheon Macroeconomics

“The underlying trend of new cases is probably still down by around 20-25% per week, and we are not yet seeing any signs that the spread of the more contagious variant of B117 is slowing the rate of decline , even in Florida, where it appears to be most prevalent, ”Shepherdson said, adding that“ it is too early to say that B117 will not be a problem ”
