(1) Number of daily COVID-19 deaths: estimated to be 16,000+*.
(2) Number of
newly unemployed persons:
The unemployment claims this
week - 6.6 million -- is already double the 3.3 million from last week,
which was already a record.
Others say that the total number of
unemployed may go
as high as 34.2 million in a few months
Think about the mood of
unemployed! In 1955, when
autos began to enter US market,
Chin, a Chinese
bashed to death with a baseball bat by 2 unemployed
Detroit, who took him
to be Japanese.
(3) Number of racist acts against AsAms per week
??? It depends greatly
on what proactive measures our community leaders will take.
(4) Stock market:
Still way down, we conjecture.
Our HOPES - Our Leaders Will Lead!
"God helps those who help themselves." We hope that leaders of the AsAm community will take proactive measures to face this looming, potential crisis.
We also hope that our fellow Americans will be calm, compass
focused. We all know that we must unite to overcome this terrible virus.
80-20 TAKES PROACTIVE MEASURES
80-20 will take 2 measures to increase our community's ability to defense
80-20 EF shall express its sincere desire to work with each of these
leaders and share resources, if the tsunami hits us. We hope that we can at least form a
temporary coalition of equals, if a crisis of huge numbers of racist acts against AsAms occurs. 80-20 shall NOT let any past differences to stand in the way of joining this temporary coalition.
(II) We'll contact the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, JCPA, to thank again
Feb. 21, 2020.
They pledged "
help ensure that Chinese people feel safe. "
seek JCPA's advice as to what concrete steps we can take to defend ourselves, and
what steps the Jewish and AsAm communities can take
for the same purpose.
cumulative death rate doubles every 4 days
, we very conservatively assume the same for daily deaths rate. 16 days is made up of four 4-day periods, hence one needs to
death of about 1,000 by (2 x 2 x 2 x 2) to estimate the number
16 days from today.
Please also note that in yet another 4 days, the daily death rate will be 32,000+, unless the pandemic is beginning to die down.
