“We have the resources to emerge from this crisis as a stronger country,” Dimon said in the letter. “America is still the most prosperous nation the world has ever seen.”JPMorgan, the biggest U.S. bank by assets, is prepared for the tumult caused by the coronavirus epidemic, he said.

The New York-based bank had $500 billion in total liquid assets and another $300 billion in borrowing ability from Fed sources, he added.
