Six months after New York “Lockdown” Unemployment is the worst in the US at 4:30 on September 23

In New York, where the spread of the new coronavirus was the most serious in the United States, it has been six months since the so-called lockdown measures were taken to severely limit economic activity.

Although the spread of the infection has been suppressed, the unemployment rate has been severely affected, including the worst level in the United States.

In New York State, where the spread of the new virus was serious, in March, in principle, residents were required to wait at home, and all stores and other businesses were closed. A strict measure called lockdown was taken. Half a year has passed in 22 days.

At the peak of early April, the number of deaths per day reached about 800, but after the spread of the infection subsided, the restaurant's outdoor operations resumed in early June. ..

However, with the spread of the infection again in the southern and western parts of the United States, economic activity has hardly resumed since then.

For this reason, the unemployment rate last month was 8.4% in the United States as a whole, but it was 12.5% ​​in New York State and 16% in New York City, which is the worst level in the United States. Is increasing.

In addition, the resumption of face-to-face classes at public elementary and junior high schools has been repeatedly postponed, and the impact of education continues.

Population outflows are occurring in response to the worsening economic situation, and it is expected that it will take a considerable amount of time for New York's economy to recover.
