As the World is battling the new Coronavirus, 6.65 million people have filed for unemployment benefits in the US last week, due to the devastating economic impact of the lockdown and border closing on the economy.
The US labor department has announced that a record number of people sought benefits becoming unemployed after 27th of March. Unemployment offices became overcrowded with the overwhelming number of claims around the world.

Rener alsways has good business ideas. Earlier this week he launched ‘FitJitsu’, a blend of fitness and Jiu-Jitsu, for those that cannot train at the academy:
