DOVER, Del. (AP) — New estimates show that the coronavirus epidemic's impact on Delaware's government coffers may not be as bad as officials initially feared.

A state panel on Thursday increased its revenue estimate for the current fiscal year by $92 million compared to April projections. The panel also increased its revenue estimates for the fiscal year starting July 1 by $73 million.  Delawareans have filed initial unemployment claims in  record numbers in recent weeks.
