The real impact on the economy.
A surge of unemployment has shaken the US economy in light of COVID-19. American businesses, small and large, are experiencing record-low sales, record-high layoffs, and a six-month forecast that is anything but certain. In order to subdue the coronavirus outbreak, public health officials are telling Americans to wear a mask, avoid face-to-face contact, and shelter-in-place. With over 5 million confirmed cases in the US as of August 2020, not only is our health at risk, but our livelihoods as well.
