On January 5, the World Health Organization reported that Wuhan, China, was seeing a “cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown cause.”
A week later, COVID-19 claimed its first reported death.
Today, there are more than 3.5 million global cases and over 248,000 deaths. In the United States alone, more than 1 million have been infected and over 67,000 have died during the pandemic.
The global economic collapse caused by the coronavirus is the biggest since the Great Depression.
And it’s been nearly impossible to talk about anything – markets, business, politics – without the coronavirus as a backdrop.
