ALANCING ACT: NYC Officials Must Weigh Possibility Of COVID-19 Spike When Considering Reopening

By Flavia K. Tucker, The Ultimate Patriot

Officials in New York City are currently preparing for the worst. Experts believe that come this fall, the number of cases in New York City are destined to spike once again.

In contrast to this grim projection, however, some experts have taken a look in the rear view mirror, noting that “as bad as things were, that things could have been ten times worse.” This, they suggest, is due to the implementation of, and adherence to, public health guidelines, such as social distancing and mask wearing.

When considering how to move forward, however, the benefits of attempting to return to normalcy must be weighed against the possibility of a COVID-19 resurgence.

Although it is not possible to know for certain what will happen in the coming months, experts have cautioned officials that “there’s a huge potential for growth” in New York City “because 75% to 85% of the population has yet to be infected.”
