U.S. health officials confirmed the first possible community transmission of the coronavirus in America, a troubling sign that the virus could be spreading in local cities and towns.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention doesn’t know exactly how the California patient contracted the virus. The individual is a resident of Solano County and is receiving medical care in Sacramento County. The patient didn’t have a relevant travel history or exposure to another patient with the virus, the CDC said.
“At this time, the patient’s exposure is unknown,” the CDC said in a statement. “It’s possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States.”
The case was picked up by clinicians in the public health system, the agency said. It brings the total number of cases in the U.S. to 60, a bulk of which are people who were evacuated from Wuhan, China or the Diamond Princess cruise ship that was quarantined off the coast of Japan.

It is impossible to predict exactly how the Greek crisis will play out. The next major signpost for the crisis, assuming that neither side in the negotiations “blinks” this week, will be the July 5 referendum. If Greek citizens vote to accept more austerity measures, then prospects of eventual agreement between creditors and the government of Greece would improve markedly. Although the current Greek government may fall if the population votes “yes,” the present bout of financial market turbulence likely would die down quickly in the aftermath of a “yes” vote. On the other hand, however, a “no” vote likely would lead to Greek default and exit from the Eurozone and further financial market volatility. Stay tuned. By Jay H. Bryson Global Economist
In my time working with the great economic forecaster Robert La Morte, from Behavioral Economics, he showed me how to identify economic and technical trends of a market cycle that has had its run looking for a correction. We are of the belief that short term, the markets may rally some, but the correction process has started. We are looking at a significant correction of around 15-25 percent from the highs by the end of the year.
