It's amazing how much the market moves with this day by day info.. up 1166 right now. If there's a spike in deaths this week it will probably dump again. If I wasn't holding my capital for a new business I'd be buying stocks right now because I really think by this time next year the DOW will be back to around 27k. I was about to put my house on the market until this crap hit, now I'm holding off for a year.
Good news? Governor Cuomo says CV deaths declined this week. Hopefully this is just not a blip and NYC is over the hill on deaths and infections.

Boris is a good example for those who support the shutdown. At first, Britain tried to go on business as usual, quarantine up the very vulnerable early but that wasn't working well, so they did eventually have to shut down the economy. One of the issues of locking up the aged is that we are finding out that so many carriers of CV are asymptomatic. So the young people taking care of our elders are still passing the disease on. I am worried about that with my father. He is in senior living now and most of the staff he sees try to keep things clean but they are going home at night or during the day and coming into contact with possible carriers.
