The United States Postal Service says it has lost $13 billion in fiscal 2020 due to the economic downturn resulting from the pandemic and is now projected to lose $22 billion over the next 18 months. Louis DeJoy will serve as the 75th postmaster general beginning June 15 and he will inherit this financial situation.
