While most Americans are concerned about their physical health, COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc on the nation's economic health, and Thursday’s initial jobless claims data reinforced that point again.

Following two consecutive weeks of jobless claims in the millions, another 6.606 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits for the week ending April 4, as the coronavirus continues to hammer away at the U.S. economy. Economists were predicting 5.5 million jobless claims for the week. The prior week’s record-breaking figure was revised higher to 6.867 million from 6.648 million.
