Unfortunately, it is located Donald Trump (73) is completely wrong! What the US feared politicians of both parties, experts and the media, has occurred in the past few days: The United States has become the epicenter of the Corona pandemic. Since Thursday this is also confirmed by the Figures: No other country has recorded so Infected, such as the United States. The statements of Trumps, Covid-19 was a “joke” and will soon be “disappeared”, have not proved to be true.
Surprisingly, this is not: As the US President in the Corona-crisis failed, and that is why he has the dangers over the next few weeks deliberately played down, showed VIEWS already.
Now Trump can exercise in damage limitation, even if he will not admit that. And here there are two bright spots this week: first, the United States have begun in the past few days, finally with comprehensive Corona Tests. Secondly, a historical bailout package in the amount of two trillion US dollars seems to be as good as safe. The Congress is United, Trump has announced his signature. So, Americans get two to three weeks, checks in the amount of $ 1200 for adults and $ 600 for children. For a family of four, that is 3600 dollars. Not bad. But it is also not sufficient.
20 percent of the unemployed? The consequences for the economy
Three million Americans have lost according to the “New York Times” in the last week of your Job. This week, it is likely to be again for far more. And if you lose in the United States, his work has far-reaching consequences. Not infrequently, it is from one day to the other without health insurance – in times of Corona and congested hospitals, which can be fatal.
The American economy is sliding inexorably into a recession. The rumored Horror-scenario: an unemployment rate of 20 percent. Clear that in Washington doing everything it can to minimize the effects of Corona-crisis. For this it will need further aid packages – and are likely to come in the coming weeks and months. Because the Democrats and Republicans in Congress have worked together in the last few days, and compromises to be found, as already long not more.
Only a dance, from time to time of the series: Donald Trump. Contrary to all the warnings from experts, Democrats and Republican party friends that he is sticking to his strategy: Up on Easter Sunday the country should be re-opened. People should be allowed to re-gather and shops to open.
Corona is the most important ethics-Test-for Trump
Ultimately, it is an ethical question, which has responded to the U.S. President for, apparently: people’s lives or the economy. Because the experts agree: Easter has come early this year for a loosening or even lifting of the curfew. The result would be dramatic: A rapid infection of the population with Covid-19, a collapse of the health system and, consequently, a large number of deaths.
Trump and employees from his / her environment to keep up with the argument, however, that an economic crisis could cost lives. That’s true. Around 10’000 people in Europe and North America have committed, according to a study because of the global financial crisis in 2008, suicide. And suicide is only the tip of the iceberg. A study of 2016 found out that 500’000 people died of cancer. Why? Because the financial resources for life-saving treatments were missing.
Whether it is possible to decide instead for the people economy and thus saves more lives than the other way around, will make in the coming weeks for hot discussions. Clearly, The Corona is:-crisis is a further ethics-Test-for Trump. In Russia and the Ukraine affair, he is rattled, as the Mueller-showed the report and the Impeachment process. What are the Trump voters left cold.
Corona is for all the felt. Even Republicans will know someone who has been unemployed – or even worse: Covid-19 is passed. So the US President is well advised to make the right decision, he wants to secure in November, the believed to be secure second term in office. Easy it is not, for that he has screwed up in January, February and beginning of March too much.
The Coronavirus currently holds the world in suspense. Many countries are taking measures such as Closing schools or limiting public events, to prevent the spread. In Switzerland, too, the grass, the Virus magnetized. All of the current information and Figures around the topic there is in the Coronavirus-Ticker.
