(BREAKING NEWS, OP-ED) — 2:50 p.m. EDT, March 27, 2020
3.3 Million new unemployment claims have been filed across America as the loss of jobs on a grand scale has forced Americans to go on assistance, despite the $2-trillion stimulus (pork) package.
The United States has now surpassed China in the number of reported coronavirus cases. The death toll in the U.S. is now over 1,000 people.
New York has now become the epicenter of the coronavirus as the spread is accelerating.
The Empire State is reporting (a new revised figure at the time of this post) 23,112 cases in New York City alone, accounting for 365 deaths there. The State of New York’s reported cases is greater than the sum of all 49 states’ reported cases!
Worldwide, the number of coronavirus cases has exceeded a half million people.
Tomorrow evening (March 27th), City Spotlight – Special Edition’s Dave Krieger (along with co-host R. J. Malloy) will be updating you on the latest statistics of what has happened in America and how communities are reacting. The program airs shortly after 6:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on WKDW-FM, North Port, Florida. Tune in for more information … as well as our “take” on things.
FLORIDA CASE REPORT
As of the time of this update, the number of Florida cases rose to 2,900, with 34 deaths and 456 people hospitalized. Statistically, this represents about .012% of those infected; however, it does not tell us how many people are infected and don’t know it yet, which is why states are putting their citizens on lockdown and only allowing essential services to operate. Florida is not one of them yet. Rather than implement a statewide lockdown, Governor Ron DeSantis is allowing the counties to decide whether the pandemic in their own region is worthy of containment to the point of telling residents to stay home.
Meanwhile, those business in Florida who are in need of assistance due to business losses can contact R. J. Malloy at WKDW-FM Radio (an agent for the SBA for the small business loans) at (941) 564-8739 and he can help you apply for low-cost emergency funds. Since all 67 counties have been declared a disaster area, emergency assistance from the SBA can now be applied for.
FLORIDA’S GOVERNOR HAS ISSUED AN EXECUTIVE ORDER: DO NOT COME TO FLORIDA!
Excessive travel is not recommended, especially people planning on coming to Florida. The Governor has issued an Executive Order for residents outside of the State of Florida NOT TO ENTER the State at all, especially from areas like New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, where the virus has been tabulated in record numbers. The Executive Order appears to have been issued due to residents fleeing the New York Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT). The Order requires incoming “escapees” to undergo mandatory 14-day isolation and has made it a misdemeanor crime punishable by 60 days in jail and a $500 fine if not adhered to, with the costs of the isolation paid for by the airline passenger trying to “escape”. The Order says nothing about those from that area sneaking in by way of a vehicle.
Many counties in the State have taken up the idea and several have implemented restrictive curfews and lockdowns. South Florida (Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties) and Hillsborough County (Tampa) are the current “hot spots” in the State for the coronavirus.
I’m going to be belabor my previous points again here because most of you have already read much of what was contained on previous posts.
UPDATED NEWS ON THE C&E — There appears to be a glimmer of hope on the horizon:
- An attorney threatened a servicer with a C&E action in Florida. The servicer immediately lowered the sale price of a probate (reverse mortgage) property by $20,000 rather than risk a trial.
- Another attorney in Lee County, Florida pushed for discovery in another C&E action. The law firm for the servicer called, wanting to settle the matter before trial.
- Another investor filed two (2) criminal complaints on 2 separate properties in Las Vegas, Nevada with the Metro Police Department. The Police Department forwarded both complaints to the Clark County District Attorney and the Nevada Attorney General’s office for further criminal investigation. When the opposing side’s lawyer found out about the criminal complaints, she told the investor’s attorney, “We are taking these criminal complaints very seriously.” Duh?
