U.S. may be entering its 'most dangerous time' in the pandemic as winter approaches
The U.S. may be entering a more dangerous period in the coronavirus crisis as the country heads into colder weather, warns Andy Slavitt, former acting administrator at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Slavitt said the number of cases may not be as high as it was in the earlier part of the year, but that the health-care system could be even more overwhelmed this time because workers are already fatigued from months of battling the virus crisis."In the spring, we had elective surgeries and other non-Covid events … temporarily halted. That's not happening now and it's unlikely to happen," he added.
"If we can't do it for ourselves or our neighbors, we have to keep (nurses, doctors and technicians) in mind as we think about coming into contact with people," he said. "It's really important, and I think there will be light at the end of the tunnel after we get through winter."

Now the city is the first urban center in California where the risk of infection is rated as minimal. While financially destroying the lives of its people.... vote red open our country up! I mean, the city’s economy is ruined, but sure, yay Democrats! This approach never occurred to rural communities where the hospitals are at 99% capacity now and will be sending their sick into the city hospitals.
