Since then manufacturing PMI strengthened until December, but manufacturing activity has slowed in January and February and it fell in contraction at 36.1 points in March, as coronavirus spread in the US. April should be worse, but manufacturing is still holding up better than services and it improved to 39.8 points in May and again to 49.6 points in June, which was revised higher to 49.8 points, but that's still contraction for this sector.
