Dr. Deborah Birx: “Difficult To Tell” If Country Would Close Down During Second Wave Of COVID-19


U.S. coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said Sunday said that we can’t know whether the country will need to shut down again if there is a second wave of coronavirus cases in the coming months. “It’s difficult to tell” if we can reopen safely this summer, “and I really am data-driven so I’m collecting data right now about whether governors and whether states and whether communities are able to open safely,” Birx said on ABC’s “This Week.” “I want to be very clear to the American people – we are preparing for that potential fall issue,” she said. “I think we’re trying to learn right now very carefully about how you reopen safely. We act like we’ve actually done this before” she also said. “This is why we’ve asked for proactive, 100 percent testing of all residents and workers… All of this proactive testing needs to be in place and needs to continue to be in place because that will determine safely remaining open in the fall.”
