Over 6.6 million Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week

This far exceeds a record high set just last week, a sign that layoffs are accelerating in the midst of the coronavirus.
The job cuts are mounting against the backdrop of economies in the US and abroad that have almost certainly sunk into a severe recession as businesses close across the world.

The figure for last week is much higher than the previous record of 3.3 million reported for the previous week.

The surging layoffs have led many economists to envision as many as 20 million lost jobs by the end of April.

The unemployment rate could spike to as high as 15 per cent this month, above the previous record of 10.8 per cent set during a deep recession in 1982.

As of today, 51 cases in the UK.

At the time you posted this Australia had 40 cases compared to 51 in the UK and it was on 03/03/2020.

A month later:

Australia has 4860 cases with 20 deaths.
UK has 29,474 cases with  2,352 deaths.

Literally half of the cases in Australia are in Sydney!

wow. but australia was in the news over here for being so blasé. how did that happen?

Vag covered most of the reasons.

Recently we've had a lot of restrictions placed on us. Most businesses are now closed and you are only allowed to travel if you're required to go to work or getting food. Companies are also being encouraged to have their employees work from home. I've been working from home since Tuesday. Usually I drive to the train station and then get the train to the CBD. Over the last 2 weeks it's gone from standing room only on the train to being empty.

2nd session of shock wave therapy complete. Coincidentally the Podiatrist recommended the same as LBSS- Couch to 5k. He said start off by walking for 2-3 minutes then jog for a minute and then back to walking until you complete 5km. He also said I'm lucky that my flare up wasn't worse since most patients would be limping for a week after running at my stage.

why not start with something like couch to 5k, where you intersperse walking with jogging at first?

also, dry needling is wild. my n=1 is that it is extremely effective at resolving referred pain. wish i'd thought of it last fall when i was getting those posture headaches (like i did the other day). something to seek out whenever the lockdown is over. no idea how it'd work for something as severe as what you have, or why the PT thinks it'd help fix your achilles, but i guess he's prescribing it for a reason.

Maybe not 5k but I think that's a good idea. Rather than doing 200's I should do something like 800s that will force me to keep the speed in check since I've got a natural inclination to push the speed.

The dry needling was cool. A shock at first and some weird sensations but something I would definitely do again.

BW- 91.0

My right achilles pulled up perfectly today but my left achilles pulled up awful. If I can't sprint I will never be able to play rugby league again. I was hoping to play rugby league this year but with the COVID-19 the season has been put on hold anyway.

Since the gym is closed indefinitely I'm going to use this as an opportunity to go on a cut. I'm only going to eat one meal a day and I'll drink coffee and protein shakes for all my other meals. I'm going to keep this cut going until I get down to 80kg, which is 11kg (24lbs) lighter than I am now.

Depending on how my achilles feels I'm planning to run again next Saturday. Clearly my body is not up to sprints but I need to somehow build some work capacity into my achilles and load the tendon so it can grow and adapt. I'll be very conservative and just do a couple of 200m runs at 35 second pace. If that works and I'm pain-free the next day I can start building up the volume while keeping the pace very slow at 35 seconds. When I can get to 200mx5 @ 35 seconds I'll start doing 2 sessions a week and drop down to 200mx2 @ 33 seconds.

Went for a 6km walk to my local rugby club.

Sprints-
90% speed  50mx5

I was excited to discover that my Samsung phone had this app called Samsung Health. I thought it would be able to record my speed. Unfortunately the app tops out at 27km/h (16.77MPH)  :(

I had no pain during the sprints but my left achilles is feeling a bit tender now. See how it pulls up tomorrow.

My gym has been shut indefinitely due to COVID19 so I can't lift weights for a while.

I've got an appointment with the Podiatrist tomorrow with plans of getting shock wave therapy on my achilles. Hopefully this treatment works!!!

COVID19 is causing havoc to the Australian economy. Thousands of people became unemployed today due to all pubs, clubs and gyms being closed. Tough times...

damn. yea it is. i think we're getting the unemployment numbers on friday, people expecting a 2-4 million people will file. not good.

pc!

You were right bro! 3 million people filed for unemployment in the USA last week. Our stats are done monthly so in the middle of April we'll get the unemployment figures for March, which won't capture all of the unemployment.

The Podiatrist went well and I've actually had a couple of sessions now. The diagnosis was that I don't need surgery I just have fairly severe bilateral Achilles tendonosis. The management plan is shockwave therapy on the achilles, dry pin needling on my calves, Orthotics for my shoes and continuation of the calf strengthening exercises I was given by the Physio. I've read mixed reviews about Orthotics but at this stage I'm willing to give anything a try. I've been told the chance of the shock wave therapy working is about 75% so we'll see.

I had my first shock wave therapy done on Tuesday and my feet got strapped after that. Yesterday I had dry pin needling on my calves and my calves felt sore as fuck afterwards. My next session is on Tuesday where I'll have another bout of shock wave on my Achilles.

US JOBLESS CLAIMS SURGE BY 3 MILLION
NEWSFLASH: More than three million Americans signed on for jobless benefit last week, as the Covid-19 outbreak hit the US economy hard.

The initial jobless claims figure, just out, and shows that 3.283m people across the US filed for unemployment support in the week to Saturday March 21.

An absolutely huge, historically bad, figure.

That absolutely shatters the previous record of nearly 700,000 back in 1982, and is a clear sign that the US economy is being battered by the coronavirus outbreak. The previous week, 281,000 people filed initial claims.

It’s much worse than most economists expected, and means millions of households across America are feeling severe financial pain.

Been saying for a long time we need to ban all US and UK travellers here in Australia. The vast majority of our cases have come from:



but because of politics we cannot do it, UK and US would get upset. Fuck them though. They're in denial and they're drowning us in their mess. A better alternative would have been to ban everyone so no one country gets offended, you know, because Trump and Boris are fucking babies.

That makes sense considering we've already put travel restrictions on Italy, China and Iran. One of my friends is travelling to England in 10 days and is planning to stay there for 12+ months. He's on edge crossing his fingers that the UK aren't going to ban Australians from coming. Half of all cases in Australia are from NSW.
