[Note: There is no significant economic data today. Tomorrow we’ll get initial claims, and on Friday retail sales and industrial production for April, both of which will be important]
Here is the update through yesterday (May 12).
As usual, significant developments are in italics.
I will restart giving the daily increase in infections if States that have “reopened” start to increase significantly again. The preliminary evidence is that customers are largely staying away from reopened businesses in those States.
*These numbers exclude 113,489 past negative tests reported by NJ on May 11
^= significant shortfall in testing, thus missing cases
**UPDATED to show VT in the “A” graded States (Sorry for missing that before).
