新冠疫情日记5/21/2020 Unemployment Rate Still High

Unemployment Rate Still High


The U.S. Labor Department issued a statement last week reporting that the number of unemployment claims rose by another 2.4 million total since mid March. There were already thirty million eight hundred sixty thousand unemployment claims that brought the unemployment rate to 14.7 %. This is the highest number since the Labor Department started keeping records in 1948.


The World Health Organization (WHO) also released information today stating that there are more than five million confirmed coronavirus cases in the world. More than three hundred twenty thousand have lost their lives. Two-thirds of the cases are in the United States, Russia, Brazil and India.


When the world began to face this catastrophic pandemic, we didn’t have a very effective way to control the disease. But on the international political stage, the politicians still point their fingers at each other, even though the United Nations could not even come up with any solution to help the world.


In conclusion: America and many nations all over the world are partially open for business. Last Friday, in Congress, the U.S. House passed a three trillion dollar stimulus bill, but in the Senate, the Republicans do not agree to pay more unemployment money because a lot of people don’t want to go back to work.


Today, millions of scientists and medical teams are working on new vaccines to rescue the world. We need to be united around the world to fight our common enemy.

                  失业人口继续上升

美国劳工部今天公佈,上星期又有二百四十万人申请失业救济金,从三月中旬以来共有三千八百六十万人登记失业,即便全国各地已经局部开放商业活动根据劳工统计局发之数字单单四月份就有二千万个职位被裁减以致失业率冲上百分之十四点七的高也是自一九四八年有记录以来之最高水準 。

世界卫生组织在今天的发布会上公告全球,受到新冠病毒确诊病例已超过五百万人次共有三十二万八千人丧生美国苏俄巴西及印度已有三分之二的确诊人数。

当我们目睹全球遭受如此惨烈之毒肆虐但目前全球仍然在束手无策之窘境川普声称要退出国际卫生组织,在世界政治舞台上相互推责,指控二百多个国家组成之联合国在如此紧急之疫情下更是群龙无首让许多贫困地区遭受到飢寒病毒交迫之痛苦中。

在疫情和经济复甦双重之考量下包括美国在内的大部分国家都已经开放各种工商业之活动但是公卫专家们对此表示高度关注,并预言疫情会捲士重来。上週五在民主黨操控之衆議院通過的三萬億紓困案今天在共和黨佔多數的參議院正在熱烈之討論中但他們堅決反對提高失業補助金有的失業者每月可以領到比工資更高的失業金也就不再願意返回工作崗位。

全世界各地之醫療科技人員正在爭分奪秒加緊硏製新冠病毒之疫苗, 這也是世界人民在期盼的大事唯有疫苗之發現才能挽救世界經濟。
