fbpx Harvard Public Health Expert: 40 States “Are Either Flat Or Going Up” In Terms Of Coronavirus Cases - Ashish Jha | Harvard Kennedy School


May 5, 2020, Video, "The New York Times reported Monday that a draft document from the federal government projected an estimated 3,000 coronavirus deaths per day by June — more than double prior estimates. Johns Hopkins University researchers behind the numbers referenced in that document later cautioned that such estimates were based on “preliminary analyses” and were meant “to aid in scenario planning — not to be used as forecasts.” But one of the scenarios included in that planning included “the premature relaxation of social distancing,” raising the question of the dire public health impacts that may arise as some states move quickly to ‘reopen’ for regular business. To discuss, Jim Braude was joined by Dr. Ashish Jha, director of the Harvard Global Health Institute."
