The United States Department Of Labor today continues its historic reporting of unemployment claims in COVID19, this time instead of up, it’s down, and down to another historic COVID19 low to 376,000, 9,000 less than last week’s rarely unrevised claims at 385,000, and just 150,500 off from pre-pandemic 225,500 on March 14, 2020.

Also down was the insured unemployment rate to its lowest COVID19 level yet, coming in at 2.5 percent, down 0.2 percent from last week’s 2.7 percent unchanged, and the figure of those on insured unemployment came in at 3,499,000, decreasing 258,000 from last week’s 3,757,000 that also revised down 14,000 from 3,771,000, and 3,499,000 is right now the lowest COVID19 insured unemployment figure since 3,094,000 on March 20, 2020 reporting the last pre-pandemic figure before COVID.
