Three million Americans will file unemployment claims next week, marking the highest level of unemployment ever seen in US history, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to shutters businesses and see workers turfed out of their jobs overnight.

Bars, restaurants, stores and casinos lie boarded up across the US as the nation’s once heaving cities have turned into ghost towns after state-wide mandates have ordered one in five Americans to stay at home.

Fears are ramping up around how many Americans will find themselves on the breadline, struggling to survive and feed their families, as President Trump warned that the pandemic is escalating to a level that he may throw the entire nation into lockdown for two weeks.

In the last 24 hours, California, New York, Connecticut and Illinois issued the most extreme measures to date, ordering 100 percent of their non-essential workforces not to go to work.

New Jersey is expected to issue a similar order Saturday, mandating all citizens to hunker down in their homes for the foreseeable future.

This has left 75 million Americans – one in five of the population – ordered to ‘stay home’ in desperate efforts by state governors to slow the spread of the virus.

This figure is expected to rise further, with Trump reportedly mulling a plan that would call out the National Guard to enforce a two-week quarantine of all Americans.

Trump would require all to ‘stay at home’ in a developing plan which won’t be announced until next week, a source told the Washington Examiner.
