Goldman: US Recovery To ‘Stall’ Amid ‘Dramatic’ Virus Surge
For months, critics of the re-opening push (and also would-be critics who, by virtue of the positions they hold, were compelled to couch their criticism in neutral terms), cautioned that restarting the world's largest economy in haphazard fashion risked the worst possible outcome.

Color me skeptical also. The next 2 weeks will be very telling for Florida and Texas. The medical field has a better capacity for saving lives but who wants to chance it.

Skeptical, you bet! I live in New Hampshire where the numbers of people affected by the Covid 19 have been small compared to other states. But I will say I was surprised last week when I was in a local convenience store . It was me a woman in front of me and the store clerk. I had my mask on and the woman didn’t. She proceeded to complain to the store clerk about all those crazy liberals wearing their masks and how she would never wear one under any circumstance and that this whole issue is the crazy press trying to bring down Trump. As she turned around I could see she had a MAGA shirt on. I thought as long as people like her exist the rebound in cases is bound to go up.
