The US will not shut down its economy again if there is a resurgence of the C-19 coronavirus outbreak as the nation starts to reopen, President Trump’s top economic adviser said.
National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow said in a TV interview that he has been told by a member of the White House’s coronavirus task force that a 2nd wave of the outbreak would not require a shutdown.
“One of the senior people in that group, now I asked that person what happens — right now the virus numbers are flattening out. That is a really good thing. That means we can reopen this economy. I asked this person ‘What happens if we get a jump back up in virus numbers?”’ Mr. Kudlow said.
“And the response was simply ‘Look — we won’t have to re-shut down because first of all we know more, we have more experience, second of all we are much better equipped with the right tools.”’
President Trump is urging states to begin reopening their economies even as the outbreak continues to grow in most of the country.
Have a healthy weekend, Keep the Faith!
