My last quote in the article (something I've also written on this blog):

“The course of the economy will be determined by the course of the virus. If it doesn’t last a long time we’ll be fine. If we’re not out of this in just a few months we’ll have a real problem,” he tells me. “I’m the wrong guy in the wrong field to ask where housing will go. Infectious disease specialists will know.”
