TIA Daily COVID-19 Update: April 17th

As TIA continues to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 and it’s impact on the 3PL and transportation industries, here is your Daily Update for April 17. As a reminder, you can find all the latest information, resources, guidance, and news from TIA’s COVID-19 Response Center.

A leveling of activity in the U.S. gives us confidence that the recent uptick in cases is a weekday accounting issue rather than a resumption of growth in the contagion. Also, France reports 17,000+ in new cases. That is certainly more evidence of the inefficiency of the French accounting rather than a commentary on what actually happened yesterday in France.

Note also the contrast in results from the early movers and the more recent victims of the contagion. All the red status countries are relatively distant from the recent hotspots in the U.S. and Europe. This implies that we will see an increase in the “other” category in my spreadsheet, even as the U.S. improves.

We’ll be back on Monday with COVID-19 updates and information that came through over the weekend.

On another Friday during shut down, please enjoy the Glenn Miller Orchestra and the amazing Nicholas Brothers as they tap and sing “I’ve Got a Gal in Kalamazoo.”
