No, an incipient economic collapse will determine when.
If people don’t start getting back to work, and soon, the definition of ‘safely reopen’ won’t be what some doctors think it means.
The cure must not be worse than the bug.
OAN Newsroom- According to Dr. Anthony Fauci of the coronavirus task force, the virus is ultimately going to determine when the nation can safely reopen.
In an interview Tuesday, he suggested the capability to efficiently carry out contact tracing and get people who are infected out of circulation has to be in place when the country reopens.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director also said assuming all infection curves are going to be down in two weeks from now is “overly optimistic.” The health official emphasized controlling the spread of the virus will be key to restarting the economy in communities like New York City.
“I think how you reopen, if you want to use that word, the economy in those communities is going to depend a lot on the ability to contain what we know will happen,” he stated. “I’ll guarantee you, once you start pulling back, there will be infections…it’s how you deal with the infection that’s gonna count.”
