Nearly 4 million people, or just over 7% of mortgage holders, have sought relief on their home loans as of April 30, according to housing data provider Black Knight. That’s up sharply from the beginning of March, when fewer than 150,000 mortgages were in forbearance.

The number is only expected to grow, with May payments due soon and with the nation’s unemployment rate expected to reach 15% to 20%.

Dutch PM prefers a ‚gift‘ to a loan for European coronavirus support

He said he would also prefer setting up a new support fund rather than having countries use the European Stability Mechanism (ESM).

„If you do (support) from the ESM, then it’s a loan and a loan must be paid back,“ he said. „If you do it as a gift, then it’s: ‚Listen, you guys have been hit hard, but together with a number of wealthier countries, we’re prepared to bear the direct costs of the coronavirus crisis‘.“
