Other US states are preparing to lift the restrictions of the Corona virus this week despite the warnings of many public health experts, and this comes at a time when the White House expects the unemployment rate this month to rise to 16 percent or more.
Health experts say an increase in human interaction could trigger a new wave of cases of Covid-19 disease, caused by the highly contagious Cornna virus, which has killed nearly 54,000 Americans so far.
Colorado, Mississippi, Minnesota, Montana, and Tennessee states will join other states in trying to reopen their economies without testing, as well as in the absence of the infrastructure needed to limit the spread of the disease, which health experts say is needed to prevent the return of injuries and endangering lives.
Indeed, Georgia, Oklahoma and Alaska have taken steps to reopen their economies a month after the government-ordered closure measures.
These unprecedented restrictions have caused a record 26.5 million Americans to seek unemployment benefits since mid-March.
White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said the unemployment rate was likely to rise to 16 percent or more in April
I think the next two months will look terrifying, said Hassett. You will see worse numbers than anything we’ve seen before
In light of separate protests across the country demanding the end of work orders to stay at home, Tennessee said it would allow restaurants to open and those orders would be completed in Mississippi.
