While efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic forced the U.S. to a virtual standstill in a matter of days, it can start work again just as rapidly, former New York Stock Exchange CEO Dick Grasso said. ⁣ ⁣"There is a morning coming," Grasso, whose tenure included an exchange shutdown after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, told Fox Business' @MariaBartiromo. "Our enemy today is not al-Qaida or someone carrying an AK-47, it is a virus. But we have the best scientists in the world, the best medical facilities in the world. We will defeat it." ⁣ ⁣Grasso, who said during a coronavirus-related drop in late February that slides in financial markets give investors a chance to beef up their holdings, doesn't believe a temporary halt in floor trading at the New York Stock Exchange will last forever. ⁣ ⁣The exchange is switching to electronic trades only as of Monday after a floor worker and exchange member tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by a new coronavirus that has killed thousands of people worldwide.
