Economy Sheds 700,000 Jobs by Mid-March Amid CCP Virus Epidemic

The American economy has lost more than 700,000 jobs in the first weeks of government efforts to slow the spread of the CCP virus.

Trump to Announce Free Virus Treatment for Americans Without Insurance

COVID-19 is a disease caused by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus. “The president has made it clear: we dont want any American to worry about the cost of getting a test or the cost of getting treatment,” Vice President Mike Pence, the White House Coronavirus Task Force head, told reporters on Thursday night.
