Additional Information

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)


Policy

  • Programmers and other digital technologists bring code to bear against the novel coronavirus. New anti-COVID-19 tools and technologies must be fully accessible to everyone, while respecting digital privacy and personal autonomy. (Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation)
  • In addition to widespread job losses and reductions in work hours, families with children face challenges related to school and childcare closures necessitated by the pandemic, with growing disparities by family income and race/ethnicity. (Urban Institute)
  • While the issue is getting another look from lawmakers, it’s not clear whether a divided and distracted Congress will be able to reach a consensus on how best to regulate the vast amounts of data collected by digital contact tracing tools and other pandemic response efforts. (STAT)
  • The Federal Reserve is ready to use all available tools to help the U.S. economy endure the coronavirus pandemic, as attention shifts to whether politically divided Congress will agree to more fiscal aid. (Bloomberg) See Testimony of the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs here.
  • California is the first state to provide financial relief to undocumented immigrants as part of the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. A $125-million disaster relief fund creates partnership with philanthropic organizations. (California Department of Social Services)
  • Newsom’s Executive Order requires counties to send vote-by-mail ballots for the November election to all registered voters, while also retaining options for in-person voting. (California State Association of Counties)

Latest research news

  • An antibody identified in the blood from a patient who recovered from SARS in 2003 has been shown experimentally to neutralize SARS-CoV2. (SciTechDaily)
  • An ecological study that included data from more than 3,000 US counties found that COVID-19 death rates were higher in areas with greater long-term exposure to particulate matter (PM5). (Xiao Wu et al. Harvard University)
  • Studying large COVID-19 clusters is difficult. Many countries have not collected the kind of detailed contact tracing data needed. And effective shutdowns have impeded researchers attempting to study super spreading events. (Science)
  • Americans who rely on the White House coronavirus task force for news coverage negatively assess media and are more likely to downplay the pandemic. (Pew Research Center)
  • Medical examiners are stepping up postmortem testing to determine whether non-hospital deaths are related to coronavirus. (Kaiser Health News)
  • An analysis of labor market responses to shut-down policies shows the coronavirus is not a great economic equalizer. Low-income and low-educated individuals face the poorer labor outcomes and suffer higher psychological costs. (Centre for Economic Policy Research)

COVID-19 restrictions have eliminated some 30 percent of jobs in Los Angeles County, affecting 1.2 million workers. Losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from industries with median pay under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

State and federal unemployment benefits provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Higher income earners experience reduced monthly earnings. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)


Policy

  • California is the first state to provide financial relief to undocumented immigrants as part of the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. A $125-million disaster relief fund creates partnership with philanthropic organizations. (California Department of Social Services)
  • Newsom’s Executive Orderrequires counties to send vote-by-mail ballots for the November election to all registered voters, while also retaining options for in-person voting. (California State Association of Counties)
  • The federal government is taking wide-ranging policy measures in response to COVID-19, including legislation, travel and immigration restrictions, and agency level actions by FEMA, HHS and others. (Congressional Research Service) See Domestic Public Health Response to COVID-19 here.
  • Southern California faces severe and long-lasting economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, with historic levels of unemployment, supply chain interruptions and significant taxable sales losses. (Southern California Association of Governments)
  • Newsom’s state budget proposal reduces spending for healthcare and education in an effort to close gaps caused by the state’s response to the coronavirus. But the cuts are conditional on the federal aid and will not be implemented unless the federal government agrees to fill in the fiscal gap for California. The move is considered strategic but risky. (CalMatters) See May Revision Budget Proposal here.
  • The California Community Colleges system filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Education over eligibility requirements for receiving emergency student aid through the CARES Act, negatively affecting undocumented and DACA students. (National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators)

Latest research news

  • An analysis of labor market responses to shut-down policies shows the coronavirus is not a great economic equalizer. Low-income and low-educated individuals face the poorer labor outcomes and suffer higher psychological costs. (Centre for Economic Policy Research)
  • Change points in the spread of coronavirus infections correlate with announcements of mitigation and containment strategies. Government interventions, such as cancellation of large events, closing of schools and non-essential businesses, as well as social distancing, are needed to stop exponential growth of novel cases. (Jonas Dehning et al. Science)
  • Predictions of state-level cumulative COVID-19 deaths vary depending on assumptions about social distancing and other interventions. CDC compares researchers’ forecasts to get a handle on predictions for the next four weeks. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • An Italian case series of children with COVID-19 suggests the multi-system inflammatory syndrome observed in patients which is similar to Kawasaki disease may be caused by COVID-19, and should be taken into consideration when developing social reintegration policies for the pediatric population. (Lucio Verdoni et al. The Lancet)
  • A lab-based study of speech droplets from volunteers uninfected with SARS-CoV-2under closed, stagnant air conditions showed that normal speaking generates airborne droplets which can remain suspended in the air for ten minutes, suggesting a possible role for these droplets in transmitting virus in confined environments. (Valentyn Stadnytskyi et al. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the U.S.)

Additional Information

In Los Angeles county, COVID-19 related restrictions have resulted in the loss of 30 percent of jobs, impacting 1.2 million people. These losses have been most acute for lower wage industries, with roughly one in three lost jobs coming from an industry with a median income under $30,000 per year. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper)

Unemployment benefits made available by both the state and federal government provide many eligible individuals earning less than $50,000 a year with benefits exceeding their income. Yet, administrative delays risk the ability of the most vulnerable to meet immediate financial demands Conversely, higher income earners experience a distinct loss in monthly earnings, compromising their ability to meet monthly expense obligations.

  • Los Angeles County job losses total nearly 1.2 million. Food service and entertainment comprise about half of the losses. Federal unemploymentbenefits can provide some help to low-income earners, in the absence of administrative delays. (Paul Bogaardt et al. IPRC Working Paper, Claremont Graduate University)
  • National health and economic projections for the end of June 2020 show wide ranging scenarios for different levels of social distancing and policies for reopening the economy. Full reopening with reduced social distancing could result in some 950,000 COVID-19 deaths but a gain of 4.1 million jobs over May 1. (Penn Wharton Budget Model)
  • The pandemic raises concerns about privacy, trust in government and surveillance. Americans are divided over use of cellphone data to trace movements. Americans see more risks than benefits to data collection. (Pew Research Center)
  • Coronavirus antibody tests have the potential to inform good public health decision-making. These tests will be in high demand, and manufacturing should be scaled appropriately. The first steps are to ensure accuracy, validity, and comparability of available tests. (Center for Health Security, the Johns Hopkins University)
  • A modeling study shows that population-wide social protection measures such as facemask use, and handwashing combined with testing, treatment, and self-isolation of symptomatic individuals can help bring the pandemic under control. (Diego Chowell et al. MedRxiv)
  • The labor market impacts of COVID-19 are highly unequal and exacerbate existing inequalities. Workers in alternative work arrangements and occupations in which only a small share of tasks can be done from home are more likely to have reduced their hours, lost their jobs and suffered falls in earnings. (Abi Adams-Prassl et al. IZA-Institute of Labor Economics)

Policy

  • Public health leaders count on federal aid to increase testing, tracking and isolation of COVID-19 positive individuals as key to any reopening plan. (NPR)
  • National Institutes of Health and pharmaceutical companies join forces in the Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) initiative that will inventory drug and vaccine candidates and decide which should get priority for U.S. funding and testing in humans. (Science)
  • The federal government’s new stimulus package increases unemployment insurance for workers affected by coronavirus-related shutdowns. States are likely to differ in their implementation of unemployment insurance, including determination of eligibility, access and level of benefits, resulting in regional disparities. (RAND)
  • Many countries are limiting travel to stem the pandemic. Measures are restricting the movement of vital medical equipment and personnel. (The Lancet)
  • As part of the federal government’s economic policy response to the pandemic, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) offers low-interest loans to small businesses, with the Federal Reserve already supplying liquidity to participating financial institutions. The program relies on commercial banks to issue loans. (American Enterprise Institute).
  • California expands financial protection for students by halting private student loan payments for three months as part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. (Office of Governor Gavin Newsom)

At the State level, COVID-19 testing declines as the uninsured rate increases in at-risk population.


Policy

  • Pre-crisis uninsurance reduces access to government-subsidized health coverage for workers in industries hardest hit by the pandemic, if they become unemployed. (Urban Institute)
  • Faced with declining local revenues, California counties depend on federal relief to help manage the pandemic. (California State Association of Counties)
  • States are taking disparate steps toward standing down from a lockdown, with uncertain coordination with medical authorities and the Trump Administration. See Guidelines for Opening Up America Again here.
  • California is the first state to secure FEMA approval for a 75 percent federal cost-share for temporary housing of vulnerable individuals as part of the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. (Office of Governor Gavin Newsom)
  • Americans remain risk-averse about getting back to normal. Desire to wait is growing among men, workers and city residents. Republicans remain more comfortable than others with resuming normalcy. (Gallup)
  • The COVID-19 shock, tumbling oil prices and capital outflows have exposed underlying external and fiscal vulnerabilities in markets. Emerging economies have been relatively constrained with regard to fiscal stimulus programs, with challenges for emerging markets just beginning. (Institute of International Finance)
  • California requires food sector employers to provide supplemental benefits to workers affected by COVID-19, filling a gap left by federal relief that had provided similar paid leave benefits for employers with fewer than 500 workers. (Office of Governor Gavin Newsom)

Latest research news

  • Despite economic downturn, the COVID-19 crisis can potentially lead to reduced gender inequality in the labor market in the long term. (Titan M. Alon et al. NBER Working Paper)
  • Monitoring geographic differences in COVID-19 cases, deaths, and changing incidence is critical for understanding community risk. Population density, timing of community mitigation strategies, and availability of testing might explain some of the observed geographic variation. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Stanford surveys residents on social-distancing measures at the state and county level. Data will help government officials decide when to ease the lockdown restrictions. (Stanford University)
  • Despite uncertainties, scientists are betting that antibody tests will help end lockdowns and get people back to work. (Nature)
  • COVID-19 antibody test study in Los Angeles county shows that the disease is far more widespread, and the fatality rate is much lower than previously thought. (University of Southern California)
  • Self-isolation compliance in the COVID-19 era is influenced by concerns over loss of income. When compensation is assumed, compliance increases to 94 percent. When compensation is not expected, self-isolation compliance falls below 57 percent. (Moran Bodas and Kobi Peleg, Health Affairs)

Latest research news

  • The growth rate of deaths per day has emerged as a useful statistic for tracking the progress of COVID-19 in different regions. It is a reliable tracker of the disease’s progress and effectiveness of containment. But tracking death rates is hardly straightforward. (Nature)
  • UC Irvine Researchers have developed a tool to track coronavirus infections. TrackCOVIDis a free, open-source smartphone application that permits contact tracing for potential coronavirus infections while preserving privacy. (University of California, Irvine)
  • A preliminary description of pediatric U.S. COVID-19 cases indicates that relatively few children with COVID-19 are hospitalized, and fewer children than adults experience fever, cough, or shortness of breath. Severe outcomes have been reported in children. Social distancing and everyday preventive behaviors remain important for all age groups. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • COVID-19-associated hospitalization rates increase with age and are highest among older adults. The majority of hospitalized patients have underlying conditions. Data suggests that non-Hispanic black population might be disproportionately affected by COVID-19 hospitalizations. (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
  • Economic analysis demonstrates that social distancing initiatives and policies in response to the COVID-19 epidemic have substantial economic benefits. The mortality benefits of social distancing are about $8 trillion or $60,000 per U.S. household. Roughly 90 percent of the monetized benefits are projected to accrue to people age 50 or older. (Michael Greenstone and Vishan Nigam, Becker Friedman Institute for Economics Working Paper)
  • Policy discussion regarding the tradeoff between the public health and economic implications of social distancing measures requires understanding of what happens if extremely severe mitigation efforts are imposed on a temporary basis (for a few months) and then gradually relaxed. Economic model predicts that once mitigation efforts are relaxed, the disease simply restarts its rapid progression and sweeps through the population in less than 18 months, reaching its peak infection rate about 450 days from now.

Policy actions to address both the practical and legal questions around running elections while also decreasing the potential for spreading the virus include bills relating to delaying elections, bills relating to absentee and mail voting and other bills relating to public health and elections. (National Conference of State Legislatures)

    • Republicans and Democrats have similar views on some aspects of the coronavirus outbreak, with majorities supporting social restrictions to stem virus spread. But significant disagreements remain on perceptions of the true risks of the virus and in perceptions of President Trump’s effectiveness in meeting the crisis. (Pew Research Center)

    Latest research news

    • The coronavirus pandemic is having unprecedented effects on the daily lives of citizens in Latin America and the Caribbean with especially dire impacts on lower income households. The results of an online survey by the Inter-American Development Bank and Cornell University show that the coronavirus pandemic is exacerbating inequality. Among the most vulnerable respondents such as low-income individuals who lost their job as a result of the pandemic only 40 percent reported being beneficiaries of pre-pandemic cash-assistance programs. (Inter-American Development Bank)
    • The Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index survey shows that 55 percent of Americans say they are self-quarantining while 45 percent report working remotely. However, relatively few report acute financial challenges for the moment. About one in eight Americans now knows someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus. The greatest concentration of people with coronavirus in their personal network is in the Northeast region including New York, but the South has posted the greatest rate of increase over the last week. (IPSOS Group)
    • Policy outcomes hinge critically on a key unknown parameter, the fraction of infected who are asymptomatic, and on the current rates of infected and recovered in the population. Evidence on the asymptomatic rate is scanty, however it could readily be estimated by randomized testing. One way to frame the economics of shutdown policies is as finding the most efficient policies to achieve a given contagion parameter, and then solving for the optimal path of contagion that trades off the economic cost against the cost of excess lives lost by overwhelming the health care system. (James H. Stock, NBER Working Paper)
    • A team of researchers examined a range of strategies for creating critical care surge capacity in the United States hospitals. As a part of the project, they developed a user-friendly, Microsoft Excel-based tool that allows decision makers at all levels—hospitals, health care systems, states, regions—to estimate current critical care capacity and rapidly explore strategies for increasing it. (RAND)
    • The economic impact of the COVID-19 outbreak in Europe will be severe. Nonessential services closed by government decree account for about one-third of output, which means that each month these sectors remain closed translates into a 3 percent drop in annual GDP. A deep European recession this year is a foregone conclusion. (IMF)
    • Social distancing will reduce the spread of the virus but lifting such measures risks a second wave of the pandemic later this year or next year in the United States. (Nature)
