Covid -19 continues to ravage the economy. There has been 47.1 million jobless claims in the past 14 weeks. There was a staggering amount of new case reported yesterday. - 41 ,000 New cases of  Covid- 19 reported yesterday,  The highest numbers ever. Mostly affecting people under age 45.

I see in Australia there is a run on the Supermarkets for toilet paper and paper towels again.... the shelves look ransacked.

Finally here in New York  cases have dropped off and more stores are opening.

As long as we don’t get a democratic President  next year, things will be fine.

You live in a very blue state, so your vote wont make a difference.  If you don't like the change you can always consider moving back to Orania

I know that this isn't a political forum, but that's a really obtuse thing to say.

Partisan opinions aside, but the current US president is nothing short of Jacob Zuma. They're both accidents that should have never happened.

For what it’s worth, the visa bulletin is out. The number of entries is much lower (probably the passport requirement). Of the 132,404 selectees 510 are South African.

Yeah, the passport requirement certainly does seem to have affected the number of entries. I think a very large part of it has to do with the fact that all of those ‘third party services’ people use wouldn’t have been able to automatically reenter the hundreds of thousands of people on their books who had previously enrolled with them before the passport requirement came into effect. Which is a good thing as far as I am concerned.

As for the 510 South African selectees, it seems to track with figures as far back as 2016, when for some reason the number of SA selectees dropped from a previous average of 1,000 to half that number. Which is kinda sad, because that effectively doubled the odds for South African entrants from roughly a 1 in 25 chance of success to a 1 in 55 chance of success 😞

Ah, excellent point about the third party services. Yes, that’s probably a big part of it.

Excellent point indeed. On that assumption, then we might see a slight increase for DV22. From what I’ve heard, it’s still planned (one such embassy has even given dates. But I’d consider that tentatively).

Also, some partial good news for some DV20 selectees (who are outside the US). Judge Mehta issued an order that DV20 visa issuance should continue. This, however only seems to favour the listed plaintiffs and possibly the people who had already interviewed/have expired visas.
 

The argument is that DV20 should have been considered “mission critical” given the time constraints.
 

We’ll know more about the possible extension for DV20 on 25 September. But I wouldn’t hold my breath because it’s clearly addressed in the INA.
