America cannot let the coronavirus shut down it’s economy again, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said.

“We can’t shut down the economy again. I think we’ve learned that if you shut down the economy, you’re going to create more damage and not just economic damage,” he said, adding that this includes other problems.

Mnuchin said of the $3 trillion in coronavirus rescue spending approved by Congress this year, only about $1.6 trillion has filtered through the economy so far.

“Over the next month, you’re going to see over another $1 trillion pumped into the economy, that’s going to have a big impact,” the secretary said. The Federal Reserve’s Main Street Lending program for mid-size businesses is just getting started and “we’re prepared to go back to Congress for more money to support the American worker,” he added.

Mnuchin added that due to an extension of forgivable Paycheck Protection Program loans to 24 weeks, he expects many restaurants that had previously been reluctant to seek loans will come forward to take up a significant portion of the program’s remaining funds.
