Good morning, it’s Thursday, April 23.
Here is your morning coronavirus update.
There are over 2.6 million cases worldwide, with over 184,000 deaths per data from Johns Hopkins.
The U.S. has over 842,000 cases, New York has over 257,000 cases and Spain has over 213,000 cases.
President Donald Trump signed an executive order on immigration to “protect our great American workers.”
The order temporarily blocks the issuance of green cards and will last for 60 days.
President Trump said last night that he believes that Governor Brian Kemp is reopening businesses--such as hair salons, nail salons and gyms--”too soon”
Kemp, who is the governor of Georgia, is allowing some businesses to open as soon as tomorrow.
Trump said that while he “loves” businesses such as hair salons, spas, tattoo parlors, etc., “they can wait a little longer.”
And, finally, the New York Stock Exchange is considering reopening in phases after May 15, according to CNN.
CNN cited two sources that were on a conference call with NYSE COO Michael Blaugrand.
If the floor were to open, there would be strict social distancing guidelines enforced and there would be a reduced headcount.
