reopened and are experiencing a spike in corona virus so that's places like Arkansas North Carolina Texas Kentucky Arizona just to name a few of them are you happy with the way the state has gone about re opening or are you worried that this will hurt people in the long run tweet us at Brian Lehrer or give us a call right now at six four six four three five seven two eight zero again at six four six four three five seven two eight zero and I was the majority of states that are continue to reopen despite this spike in numbers have Republican governors in charge and so I guess it begs the question right away is this yet another thing where the response to this covert nineteen will fall under under under partisan lines I think that's somewhat the kids but not always and I think you're seeing differences within the party as we've seen during this entire pandemic you have Republican governors being very cautious you have others I had with re opening even as the spikes are continuing and you have differences within democratic state local officials as well and so it it doesn't cleave along clean party lines in this case and to secretary Mnuchin's comment that you aired I would say that there's been this effort to portray this as an all or nothing either you're for reinstating a full lockdown or your for full re opening and that's just absolutely not the case and we're seeing right now some states saying look we need to at least hit pause and not further reopen just stay where we are now in terms of our rolls around businesses and social gatherings in light of the spikes yeah I mean it's it sort of reminds me of this very old debate in public health about these all or nothing arguments it seems like it has been part of a lot of discomfort nineteen conversation is even both in terms of how states responded how governments respond but also as individuals that people have either you either do you do everything or nothing to protect yourself and I wonder what you think about how much of the lack of restriction that's coming along in the states can be attributed to just quarantine fatigue absolutely that's a huge part of it and I also think that the economic pain people are feeling is real so many people millions and millions of people have lost their jobs the aid from Congress is is running low and for many people it never arrived in the first place and so I think that the push to re open has a some very legitimate basis by the virus is still extremely prevalent and as more people go out and as more people interact especially in workplace settings and businesses and and it's sort of enclosed place is that risk is rising and we're seeing cases rise and we're seeing hospitalizations go up we're seeing ICU beds fill up and a lot of parts of the country so there's really alarm bells going off the protests around police violence were I I guess either I really unpredictable are really predictable part of all of this when we got into it why is there any sense of a number of cases that might be links to mass protests in some of the states so it's too soon to tell so the spikes we're seeing right now can't be tied to the protests because it takes a few weeks to really see the impact from that and so what we are seeing now out can be more easily attribute it to the re openings and the people you know just going out in public more leaving their home more interacting more it will take time to see the impact of the protests and so a lot of places and public officials and city officials are worried about that and they have in New York in DC and in other cities they've set up testing location specifically for protesters and are posting.
