Coronavirus: Effect on world economy worsens

Coronavirus: Effect on world economy worsens

The coronavirus outbreak’s impact on the world economy grew more alarming, even after President Donald Trump denounced criticism of his response to the threat as a “hoax” cooked up by his political enemies.

China’s manufacturing plunged in February by an even wider margin than expected after efforts to contain the coronavirus outbreak shut down much of the world’s second-largest economy, an official survey showed.

The survey, coming as global stock markets fall sharply on fears that the virus will spread abroad, adds to mounting evidence of the vast cost of the disease that emerged in central China in December and its economic impact worldwide.

The monthly purchasing managers’ index issued by the Chinese statistics agency and an industry group fell to 35.7 from January’s 50 on a 100-point scale on which numbers below 50 indicate activity contracting.

How Japan has been affected

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced a 270 billion yen ($3.8 billion) emergency economic package to help fight the virus as he sought the public’s support for his government’s fight against the outbreak.

Mr Abe said at a news conference that Japan is at critical juncture to determine whether the country can keep the outbreak under control ahead of the Tokyo summer Olympics.

Mr Abe, whose announcement this past week of a plan to close all schools for more than a month through the end of the Japanese academic year sparked public criticism, said the emergency package includes financial support for parents and their employers affected by the school closures.

“Frankly speaking, this battle cannot be won solely by the efforts of the government,” Mr Abe said Saturday (local time).

“We cannot do it without understanding and cooperation from every one of you, including medical institutions, families, companies and local governments.”

How the Middle East is responding

Iran is preparing for the possibility of “tens of thousands” of people getting tested for the virus as the number of confirmed cases spiked again Saturday, an official said, underscoring the fear both at home and abroad over the outbreak in the Islamic Republic.

The virus and the COVID-19 illness it causes have killed 43 people out of 593 confirmed cases in Iran, Health Ministry spokesman Kianoush Jahanpour said.

The new toll represents a jump of 205 cases – a 150 percent increase from the 388 reported the day before.

Earlier Saturday, Bahrain threatened legal prosecution against travellers who came from Iran and hadn’t been tested for the virus, and also barred public gatherings for two weeks.

Saudi Arabia said it would bar citizens of the Gulf Cooperation Council from Islam’s holiest sites in Mecca and Medina over concerns about the virus’ spread.

The GCC is a six-nation group including Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

On Thursday, Saudi Arabia closed off the holy sites to foreign pilgrims over the coronavirus, disrupting travel for thousands of Muslims already headed to the kingdom and potentially affecting plans later this year for millions more ahead of the fasting month of Ramadan and the annual hajj pilgrimage.

Despite anxieties about a wider outbreak in the US, Mr Trump has defended measures taken and lashed out Friday at Democrats who have questioned his handling of the threat.

At a political rally Friday night in North Charleston, South Carolina, Mr Trump asserted that Democratic complaints about his handling of the virus threat are “their new hoax”, echoing similar past complaints by the president about the Russia investigation and his impeachment.

Mr Trump accused Democrats of “politicising” the coronavirus threat and boasted about preventive steps he’s ordered in an attempt to keep the virus from spreading across the United States.

Shortly before Mr Trump began to speak, health officials confirmed a second case of the virus in the US in a person who didn’t travel internationally or have close contact with anyone who had the virus.

The list of countries touched by the virus has climbed to nearly 60. More than 85,000 people worldwide have contracted the virus, with deaths topping 2900.

Even in isolated, sanctions-hit North Korea, leader Kim Jong Un called for stronger anti-virus efforts to guard against COVID-19, saying there will be “serious consequences” if the illness spreads to the country.

China has seen a slowdown in new infections and on Saturday morning reported 427 new cases over the past 24 hours along with 47 additional deaths. The city at the epicentre of the outbreak, Wuhan, accounted for the bulk of both.

The ruling party is striving to restore public and business confidence and avert a deeper economic downturn and politically risky job losses after weeks of disruptions due to the viral outbreak.

South Korea, the second hardest hit country, reported 813 new cases on Saturday – the highest daily jump since confirming its first patient in late January and raising its total to 3150.

Streets were deserted in the city of Sapporo on Japan’s northernmost main island of Hokkaido, where a state of emergency was issued until mid-March. Seventy cases – the largest from a single prefecture in Japan – have been detected in the island prefecture.

The archbishop of Paris asked all of the French capital‘s parish priests to change the way they administer communion to counter the spread of the coronavirus.

Bishop Michel Aupetit instructed that priests no longer put the sacramental bread in the mouths of worshippers celebrating communion and instead place it in their hands.

He also asked that worshippers not drink wine directly from a shared chalice, and that sacramental bread instead be dipped in wine.

The bishop’s instructions were listed in a statement Saturday from the Paris diocese.

It said a Paris priest tested positive for the virus on Friday after returning from Italy.

The head of the World Health Organization on Friday announced that the risk of the virus spreading worldwide was “very high”, while UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the “window of opportunity” for containing the virus was narrowing.

Stock markets around the world plunged again Friday. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones index took yet another hit, closing down nearly 360 points.

The index has dropped more than 14 percent from a recent high, making this the market’s worst week since 2008.

In Asia, Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios Japan announced they would close, and events that were expected to attract tens of thousands of people were called off, including a concert series by the K-pop group BTS.

Tourist arrivals in Thailand are down 50 percent compared with a year ago, and in Italy – which has reported 888 cases, the most of any country outside of Asia – hotel bookings are falling and Premier Giuseppe Conte raised the spectre of recession.

Assuming there are many more cases with no or very mild symptoms, the rate “may be considerably less than one percent”, US health officials wrote in an editorial in the journal.

That would make the virus more like a severe seasonal flu than a disease similar to its genetic cousins SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome, or MERS, Middle East respiratory syndrome.

Given the ease of spread, however, the virus could gain footholds around the world and many could die.

Europe’s economy is already teetering on the edge of recession. A measure of business sentiment in Germany fell sharply last week, suggesting that some companies could postpone investment and expansion plans.

China is a huge export market for German manufacturers.

Economists have forecast global growth will slip to 2.4 percent this year, the slowest since the Great Recession in 2009, and down from earlier expectations closer to three percent.

For the United States, estimates are falling to as low as 1.7 percent growth this year, down from 2.3 percent in 2019.

But if COVID-19 becomes a global pandemic, economists expect the impact could be much worse, with the US and other global economies falling into recession.

On Diagnosing Trump From a Distance – The Atlantic

Through the 2016 campaign, I posted a series called “Trump Time Capsule” in this space. The idea was to record, in real time, what was known about Donald Trump’s fitness for office—and to do so not when people were looking back on our era but while the Republican Party was deciding whether to line up behind him and voters were preparing to make their choice.

The series reached 152 installments by election day. I argued that even then there was no doubt of Trump’s mental, emotional, civic, and ethical unfitness for national leadership. If you’re hazy on the details, the series is (once again) here.

That background has equipped me to view Trump’s performance in office as consistently shocking but rarely surprising. He lied on the campaign trail, and he lies in office. He insulted women, minorities, “the other” as a candidate, and he does it as a president. He led “lock her up!” cheers at the Republican National Convention and he smiles at “send them back!” cheers now. He did not know how the “nuclear triad” worked then, and he does not know how tariffs work now. He flared at perceived personal slights when they came from Senator John McCain, and he does so when they come from the Prime Minister of Denmark. He is who he was.

The Atlantic editorial staff, in a project I played no part in, reached a similar conclusion. Its editorial urging a vote against Trump was obviously written before the election but stands up well three years later:

He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and voters—the statesmen and thinkers of the ballot box—should act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent


The one thing I avoided in that Time Capsule series was “medicalizing” Trump’s personality and behavior. That is, moving from description of his behavior to speculation about its cause. Was Trump’s abysmal ignorance—“Most people don’t know President Lincoln was a Republican!”—a sign of dementia, or of some other cognitive decline? Or was it just more evidence that he had never read a book? Was his braggadocio and self-centeredness a textbook case of narcissistic personality disorder? (Whose symptoms include “an exaggerated sense of self-importance” and “a sense of entitlement and require[s] constant, excessive admiration.”) Or just that he is an entitled jerk? On these and other points I didn’t, and don’t, know.

Like many people in the journalistic world, I received a steady stream of mail from mental-health professionals arguing for the “medicalized” approach. Several times I mentioned the parallel between Trump’s behavior and the check-list symptoms of narcissism. But I steered away from “this man is sick”—naming the cause rather than listing the signs—for two reasons.

The minor reason was the medical-world taboo against public speculation about people a doctor had not examined personally. There is a Catch-22 circularity to this stricture (which dates to the Goldwater-LBJ race in 1964). Doctors who have not treated a patient can’t say anything about the patient’s condition, because that would be “irresponsible”—but neither can doctors who have, because they’d be violating confidences.

Also, a flat ban on at-a-distance diagnosis doesn’t really meet the common-sense test. Medical professionals have spent decades observing symptoms, syndromes, and more-or-less probable explanations for behavior. We take it for granted that an ex-quarterback like Tony Romo can look at an offensive lineup just before the snap and say, “This is going to be a screen pass.” But it’s considered a wild overstep for a doctor or therapist to reach conclusions based on hundreds of hours of exposure to Trump on TV.

My dad was a small-town internist and diagnostician. Back in the 1990s he saw someone I knew, on a TV interview show, and he called me to say: “I think your friend has [a neurological disease]. He should have it checked out, if he hasn’t already.” It was because my dad had seen a certain pattern—of expression, and movement, and facial detail—so many times in the past, that he saw familiar signs, and knew from experience what the cause usually was. (He was right in this case.) Similarly, he could walk down the street, or through an airline terminal, and tell by people’s gait or breathing patterns who needed to have knee or hip surgery, who had just had that surgery, who was starting to have heart problems, et cetera. (I avoided asking him what he was observing about me.)

Recognizing patterns is the heart of most professional skills, and mental health professionals usually know less about an individual patient than all of us now know about Donald Trump. And on that basis, Dr. Bandy Lee of Yale and others associated with the World Mental Health Coalition have been sounding the alarm about Trump’s mental state (including with a special analysis of the Mueller report). Another organization of mental health professionals is the “Duty to Warn” movement.

But the diagnosis-at-a-distance issue wasn’t the real reason I avoided “medicalization.” The main reason I didn’t go down this road was my assessment that it wouldn’t make a difference. People who opposed Donald Trump already opposed him, and didn’t need some medical hypothesis to dislike his behavior. And people who supported him had already shown that they would continue to swallow anything, from “Grab ‘em by … ”  to “I like people who weren’t captured.” The Vichy Republicans of the campaign dutifully lined up behind the man they had denounced during the primaries, and the Republicans of the Senate have followed in that tradition.


But now we’ve had something we didn’t see so clearly during the campaign. These are episodes of what would be called outright lunacy, if they occurred in any other setting: An actually consequential rift with a small but important NATO ally, arising from the idea that the U.S. would “buy Greenland.” Trump’s self-description as “the Chosen One,” and his embrace of a supporter’s description of him as the “second coming of God” and the “King of Israel.” His logorrhea, drift, and fantastical claims in public rallies, and his flashes of belligerence at the slightest challenge in question sessions on the White House lawn. His utter lack of affect or empathy when personally meeting the most recent shooting victims, in Dayton and El Paso. His reduction of any event, whatsoever, into what people are saying about him.

Obviously I have no standing to say what medical pattern we are seeing, and where exactly it might lead. But just from life I know this:

  • If an airline learned that a pilot was talking publicly about being “the Chosen One” or “the King of Israel” (or Scotland or whatever), the airline would be looking carefully into whether this person should be in the cockpit.
  • If a hospital had a senior surgeon behaving as Trump now does, other doctors and nurses would be talking with administrators and lawyers before giving that surgeon the scalpel again.
  • If a public company knew that a CEO was making costly strategic decisions on personal impulse or from personal vanity or slight, and was doing so more and more frequently, the board would be starting to act. (See: Uber, management history of.)
  • If a university, museum, or other public institution had a leader who routinely insulted large parts of its constituency—racial or religious minorities, immigrants or international allies, women—the board would be starting to act.
  • If the U.S. Navy knew that one of its commanders was routinely lying about important operational details, plus lashing out under criticism, plus talking in “Chosen One” terms, the Navy would not want that person in charge of, say, a nuclear-missile submarine. (See: The Queeg saga in The Caine Mutiny, which would make ideal late-summer reading or viewing for members of the White House staff.)

Yet now such a  person is in charge not of one nuclear-missile submarine but all of them—and the bombers and ICBMs, and diplomatic military agreements, and the countless other ramifications of executive power.

If Donald Trump were in virtually any other position of responsibility, action would already be under way to remove him from that role. The board at a public company would have replaced him outright or arranged a discreet shift out of power. (Of course, he would never have gotten this far in a large public corporation.) The chain-of-command in the Navy or at an airline or in the hospital would at least call a time-out, and check his fitness, before putting him back on the bridge, or in the cockpit, or in the operating room. (Of course, he would never have gotten this far as a military officer, or a pilot, or a doctor.)

There are two exceptions. One is a purely family-run business, like the firm in which Trump spent his entire previous career. And the other is the U.S. presidency, where he will remain, despite more and more-manifest Queeg-like  unfitness, as long as the GOP Senate stands with him.

(Why the Senate? Because the two constitutional means for removing a president, impeachment and the 25th Amendment, both ultimately require two thirds support from the Senate. Under the 25th Amendment, a majority of the Cabinet can remove a president—but if the president disagrees, he can retain the office unless two thirds of both the House and Senate vote against him, an even tougher standard than with impeachment. Once again it all comes back to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.)

Donald Trump is who we knew him to be. But now he’s worse. The GOP Senate continues to show us what it is.

One of K-Pop’s biggest stars ignored social distancing rules to visit …

The management of South Korean boyband BTS have apologized after one of the band’s members went to bars while the country’s strict social distancing rules were in place.

BTS, which has seven members, is one of the biggest bands in the world — last year it became the first group in Billboard history to spend five weeks at number one on the Billboard Artist 100 chart.

Jungkook — who, at 22, is the band’s youngest member — visited bars and restaurants in Seoul’s nightlife district Itaewon on April 25, BTS’ label Big Hit Entertainment said in a statement on Monday.

At the time, South Korea was still under strict social distancing rules, and citizens were encouraged to stay home and limit unnecessary contact with others. Those social distancing rules were lifted on May 6.

A total of 187 coronavirus cases have been linked to an Itaewon nightclub cluster, Kwon Jun-wook, deputy director of the country’s Central Disease Control Headquarters, said in a briefing on Tuesday. The first reported case as part of this cluster was a 29-year-old man who visited several clubs in Itaewon on the night of May 1 and the early hours of May 2.

In the statement, Big Hit said that Jungkook went out with friends on April 25. But he did not go to the places that the patient had visited in early May, Big Hit said.

“After his visit, there were no symptoms of coronavirus including coughs or fever; and he had voluntarily taken the test at a designated clinic and the result was negative. The artist himself is deeply regretting that he hadn’t faithfully participated in the grand social endeavor to socially distance,” the statement said.

Trisha Paytas – Wikipedia

Trisha Kay Paytas (;[4] born May 8, 1988)[5] is an American media personality, YouTuber, webcam model, writer, and singer. Born in Riverside, California, Paytas was raised in Illinois before relocating to Los Angeles in her teens. After moving, Paytas became a stripper and began acting on the side, primarily as an extra. She appeared in a number of music videos for artists including Eminem and Amy Winehouse. In 2006, Paytas created blndsundoll4mj, a lifestyle-oriented YouTube vlog channel. Following the success of several viral videos, Paytas garnered a significant following, reaching 100,000 subscribers in 2012 and 1,000,000 in 2014. As of May 2020, she has accumulated roughly 4.88 million subscribers and roughly 1.7 billion lifetime views.

Alongside her online presence, Paytas was a regular in television shows The Greg Behrendt Show (2006–07), Who Wants to Be a Superhero? (2007), and British Celebrity Big Brother (2017), as well as hosting the podcasts Dish With Trish (2015–16; 2019–present) and Let’s Talk About Sex (2017–present). Paytas starred in the short film Viral Video (2014), and its sequel, also serving as a producer for both. Since 2014, she has worked independently as a recording artist, releasing one cover album, 8 extended plays and 35 singles. She has also embarked on her own headlining tour to promote her music. Other endeavors include authoring several self-published books, modeling for lingerie and fetish photoshoots, and her own perfume, eponymously titled Trish.

Early life

Paytas was born in Riverside, California,[5] to Frank and Lenna (née Kant).[6] Her parents divorced when she was three years old,[citation needed] after which she moved with her mother to Illinois. Paytas was raised outside Rockford, Illinois in the city of Freeport.[7] From 1996 to 2003, she lived in Byron.[citation needed] At 15, Paytas relocated to California to live with her father and brother, and enrolled in a Catholic online school program.[8] She returned to Illinois to live with her mother at age 16, attending high school in Pecatonica.[8] She graduated from Pecatonica High School in 2006, where she was a cheerleader, and moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting the day after her graduation.[citation needed]

Career

2006–2012: Beginnings on YouTube

After moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting, she began doing professional lingerie modeling and worked as a stripper and an escort to support herself.[9] She attempted to break the world’s fastest-talker record on Guinness World Records Unleashed, but was unable to break the record. In 2006, Paytas made her first television appearance as a correspondent to Greg Behrendt on The Greg Behrendt Show. She appeared on the show for its full thirteen–episode run before it was cancelled after only airing one season. The following year in 2007 she appeared on the second season of Who Wants to Be a Superhero?.[10] Paytas played “Ms. Limelight”. She was on the show for four episodes although she was eliminated from the competition portion of the show on the third episode. On January 3, 2007, Paytas started her YouTube channel “blndsundoll4mj”. The channel was originally dedicated to movie director Quentin Tarantino, whom Trisha idolized, but soon after being created, Paytas began to focus on other types of videos. Blndsundoll4mj primarily gives fashion, beauty and relationship advice videos.[9]

From 2008 through 2010, Paytas appeared on television shows including The Price Is Right (2008), The Ellen DeGeneres Show (2011), Jane by Design (2011), Huge (2011), and Modern Family (2011), among others. She portrayed Jessica Simpson in the 2009 Eminem video “We Made You”. She also appeared as a background dancer for rapper M.I.A. at the Scream Awards in 2010. Later in 2010, she appeared in the videos for “Playing the Part” by Jamey Johnson, “A Girl’s Got to Do What a Girl’s Got to Do” by Barbwire, and “Tears Dry on Their Own” by Amy Winehouse. Paytas made an appearance in a Guns N’ Roses’ tour video, playing a mobster’s girlfriend. Paytas starred in the Les Savy Fav video for their song “Sleepless in Silverlake” and portrayed Marilyn Monroe. In 2012, she played a stripper in The All-American Rejects’ music video for “Beekeeper’s Daughter”. Paytas appeared in 2010 on an episode of My Strange Addiction as a self-admitted tanning addict. Despite being aware of the high chances of developing skin cancer,[11] Later the following year, in 2011, she appeared on an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker but was not accepted.[citation needed]

2013–2016: Online success and music releases

During this time, Paytas made a number of “trolling” videos, which she told Business Insider were a way to “dumb myself down” in order to get more attention and views. This involved videos claiming that dogs do not have brains, or that she was voting for the 2012 Republican candidate for President of the United States, Mitt Romney.[12][13] In an interview with Perez Hilton, she commented on her career aspirations, saying:

I have a lot of insecurities. I just want people to know me and to love me, because I have no love. I literally have zero friends. So I like people to adore me, but I never had a talent that made people adore me. So I would try everything, but nothing really worked. But, honestly, YouTube was a godsend. I could literally be myself, and people loved it.[9]

On January 18, 2013, she appeared on an episode of Dr. Phil, discussing the phenomenon of slut-shaming, particularly its prominence on social media.[14]

In June 2014, Paytas created a companion’ channel, “TrishasLife”, later Trisha Paytas, which featured personal vlog videos. In turn, she began posting her more stylized or music-related videos on her main channel, blndsundoll4mJ.[15][16] She also began posting mukbang sessions and eating-challenge videos.[9] As of July 2017, she has over one billion lifetime views for her more than 2,500 uploads.[17] She has been credited for popularizing “haul” videos and mukbang eating challenges, as well as being noted for her frank, often controversial discussion of her personal life.

In 2014, Paytas starred opposite Richard Grieco in Viral Video, a 15-minute horror short film that she co-produced. She also appeared in its sequel, Viral Video 2, in 2015.[citation needed]

Personal life

Paytas has said she was inspired by comedian Andy Kaufman, whom she has been a fan of since childhood: “He made his living just being all sorts of characters, and nobody really knowing who the real Andy Kaufman is. And in a sense, I don’t think any of you know who the real Trisha Paytas is either.”[9]

UAE, Israel reach historic deal to normalise relations

UAE, Israel reach historic deal to normalise relations

A joint statement issued by Trump, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Al Nahyan said they hoped the “historic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East”.

As a result, they added, Israel would suspend its controversial plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank, the BBC reported.

Until now Israel has had no diplomatic relations with the Gulf Arab countries.

However, shared concerns over Iran’s regional influence have led to unofficial contacts between them, the BBC reported.

In response to President Trump’s announcement, Netanyahu tweeted: “Historic day.”

The UAE’s Ambassador to the US, Yousef Al Otaiba, said it was “a win for diplomacy and for the region”.

“It is a significant advance in Arab-Israeli relations that lowers tensions and creates new energy for positive change,” he added.

However, a senior Palestinian official, Hanan Ashrawi, condemned the deal, saying the UAE had “come out in the open on its secret dealings/normalization with Israel” and telling Prince Mohammed: “May you never be sold out by your ‘friends'”, the BBC reported.

It marks only the third Israel-Arab peace deal since Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948. Egypt had signed one in 1979, while Jordan signed one in 1994.

According to the joint statement, Israel will “focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world”, and that the US and UAE will work to achieve that goal, the BBC reported.
