From the Document: "The economic ramifications of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic could cause borrowers to miss loan payments, potentially to the point of individual banks or the bank industry becoming distressed. How and to what degree banks will be affected is uncertain. Comprehensive bank data are collected and released quarterly and provide indicators of industry health. On August 25, 2020, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) released the 'Quarterly Banking Profile: Second Quarter 2020,' which reports aggregate data from all 5,066 FDIC-insured institutions as of June 30, 2020.
