Reopening America

By Jiachuan Wu, Robin Muccari, Anna Sundberg, Brianna DeJesus-Banos, and Daniella Silva – April 29, 2020 / Updated May 15, 2020

Some states are starting to reopen and lift lockdowns, even as the battle against the coronavirus rages on.

It’s been nearly two months since the first stay-at-home orders were announced in the United States amid the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the country with more than 1.2 million known cases and more than 75,000 deaths. Nearly two months since the social distancing measures began, more than 35 states have started to reopen their economies.

In Florida, partial reopenings began on May 4 except for in Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties, with restaurants and retail stores allowed to reopen at 25 percent capacity per local government orders.

“We understood we have a big, diverse state,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said late last month. “We understood the outbreak was not uniform throughout the state and we had a tailored and measured approach that not only helped our numbers be way below what anyone predicted but also did less damage to our state going forward.”

In New York, the epicenter of the virus in the United States, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday it was not worth losing lives to reopen the economy. “This is not a situation where you can go to the American people and say, ‘How many lives are you willing to lose to reopen the economy?’” he said at a news conference.
