Update (1255ET): The Mayor of Phoenix just acknowledged during a roundtable discussion with other mayors hosted by a Washington think tank that her city “opened much too early” and is now facing a serious crisis, per CNN.

During a panel discussion with other mayors across the country hosted by the Center for American Progress, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said that the city and state of Arizona is not recovering from Covid-19.

“We have had so many of the records you don’t want to be hitting for Covid-19 from my perspective. We opened too much too early and so our hospitals are really struggling,” Gallego said.

She also said that the increase of positive cases is primarily due to the lifting of the stay-at-home order as well as challenges in long-term care facilities. Arizona lifted the stay-at-home order on May 15.

The city’s hospitals in particular are “really struggling,” per CNN.

Meanwhile, during his latest interview with Fox on Thursday, Larry Kudlow said Thursday had been a “rough day” for markets, but that talk of a second wave of the virus had been seriously overblown.

“Go talk to Deborah Birx about that, she doesn’t seem to think so,” Kudlow said of a second wave, before acknowledging that he “isn’t a medical expert.” Steve Mnuchin said earlier that a second shutdown wouldn’t be necessary even if new cases surge.

New York Gov Cuomo announced on Thursday that five regions in central and western NY would resume indoor dining Friday as ‘Phase 3’ of the state’s reopening begins.

The WHO also issued another warning about the spread of the coronavirus in Africa, with total cases reaching 200,000 less than three weeks after reaching 100,000, though the continent still accounts for less than 5% of global cases.

    “Her” city 🙂

    Women shouldn’t even BE in politics. This is what libtards get for voting in anything other than a strong smart white Christian man.
