Will coronavirus cases decrease in the summer? “It’s not like the weather,” former CDC official says

Share

Dr. Tom Frieden, the former director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Covid-19 is “not like the weather” when asked if he expected cases to decrease in the summer.

Frieden appeared on “CBS This Morning” and said “we can’t expect seasons here,” However, he added the US “should be able to gradually reopen if we do the rights things.”

“Look at countries around the world that have been able to tamp this down and then gradually loosen the faucet and get back to a new normal, normal, but a new normal, but not open the floodgates,” Frieden said. “What does that mean? That means that people who are over the age of 60 or who have underlying medical problems may need to stay home for longer.”
