How To Balance The Economy During The Pandemic


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today that total non-farm employment rose by 4.8 million in June and the unemployment rate declined to 11.1 percent with ten million eighty thousand people still out of a job. But it is a good sign for the economy.


In Texas we now have the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases at 8,076 and fifty- seven people have passed away. In the Harris County area we have almost run out of hospital beds. This is a very serious development in the southern states.


Texas was a very early state to open for business because we let the beaches, bars and restaurants open. People did not care about wearing a mask or keeping social distance and the virus came back to spread out again. As Dr. Fauci warned us, if we don’t control this pandemic, we might have 100,000 confirmed cases per day in the coming months in America. Such an horrific situation may happen to us.


Whether or not President Trump could be re-elected partly depends on the economy. The latest poll shows he is behind challenger Biden by 15 points.


The CDC today also warned that the coronavirus is still out of control around the world, especially in America.


Today we are facing so many problems. The racial issues are creating unrest in the cities. Cases like in Seattle, Washington, have seriously interrupted the local people’s lives.


We are also very glad to see that our economy is improving. But how can we balance the pandemic and the economy? This is a big problem for all of us.

   

             鱼与熊掌 不可得兼

劳工部今天公佈全国六月份就业人数增加了480万人,全国失业率下降至百分之十一点一, 共有一千七百八十万人仍在待业状态。

全国疫情目前以徳州最为严峻,昨天单日就有八千零七十六人确诊,目前在大休斯敦地区之医疗床位已呈饱和状态,州长及市长皆重申停止进一步开放歩骤,并立即关闭全州之酒吧行业。

自从五月初大部分州开放经济活动以来,全国各地之商业餐厅海岸重启,是就业人数激增的原因 ,对于开放后立即导致疫情之反弹,更是公衞专家们最担心的变化,并且提出严重警告,时间已经不多,如此下去可能会变成无法收拾之惨局。

经济是否在近月内好转,绝对是川普可否连任之最大关键所在,目前他已落后对手拜登十五个百分点,世卫组织日前也说新冠疫情目前在全世界许多地区仍然猖狂而无法全面控制中,其中百分之二十五疫情是在美国。

就目前看来,联邦政府并无全面性之措施来对付病毒,而各州地方政府採取之措施也不尽相同, 实在也无法做到中央统一领导来贯彻措施。

非常不幸的是我们种族矛盾在社会中不断激增,治安预算、警察守则都是急待解决之事,许多城市诸如西雅图市民划地为营,扰乱市政及居民,也是最坏的示范。

我们欣见美国经济复甦在望, 也更忧心疫情扩散,真是鱼与熊掌,如何兼得?
