CDC warns that new lockdowns may be required if COVID-19 cases continue to rise

The CDC’s COVID-19 incident manager, Dr. Jay Butler, just confirmed that the US may have to initiate a second lockdown if new coronavirus cases continue to significantly rise.

“If cases begin to go up again, and particularly if they go up dramatically, it’s important to recognize that more extensive mitigation efforts such as what were implemented back in March may be needed again,” Butler said on Friday.

“That is a decision that really needs to be made locally based on what is happening within the community regarding disease transmission,” he continued.

Butler warned that the pandemic is “not over,” remarking that “looking at some of the serology data, it’s clear that the vast majority of Americans still have not been exposed to this virus.”

The COVID-19 fallout from the widespread protests hasn’t quite begun to emerge, but the next several weeks will likely be the critical period that shows whether or not the US will experience a virus resurgence from the massive gatherings across the nation.

The US has experienced a rise in daily COVID-19 diagnoses in recent days, which was expected as most of the US lifted lockdown orders. Many states are entering the final phases of reopening, including allowing large gatherings such as churches and, of course, protests.

The Washington Examiner reported:

Twenty-three states have seen increases in coronavirus cases in the last week. The governors of both Utah and Oregon, as well as the mayor of Nashville, Tennessee, on Thursday decided to pause the loosening of economic restrictions in their areas.

Do you think some areas will reverse reopening progress in the coming months? Scroll down to the comments and let us know what you think!

This is a positive note, we still have our rights as Americans, backed by the Constitution of the United States of America, think about it for a second, impeachment, coronavirus, protests, tear down statues, do away with history, rename military bases, remove movies,
So called BLM, (ever hear of demographics) and its tie to the democratic states that are in question, police brutality??? I think not. One bad apple doesn’t spoil the whole bunch.
Without police who will come to the rescue? STOP RESISTING ARREST AND TRYING TO RUN. And back to the coronavirus and possible lockdowns, I will not be locked down nor be forced to ware a mask (that does no good anyway) I am a free American with my conditional rights the corrupt democrats will not tread on them. Down with the democrats and their corruption and power hunger at the rights of Americans, I will not be treated like animals to slaughter. GOD and President Trump Prevail

I agree, this virus scam has turned our country into the socialist country that the democratic party has wanted for so long. We must not let them have there way. Or we are sure to loose this country to socialist country. They are only doing this because they hate our President Trump. He’s about to find them all out, and they are scared shitless. they are the criminals, not Trump.

If people can gather in large groups and riot with their governors and mayors cheering them on, then it is time to reopen everything. We need to get these bored young trouble makers back to work and our economy moving again.

God…Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, are still on the throne and prayers changes outcomes. We witnessed it in 2016 and will witness it again in 2020. All the rest is a foreshadowing of what’s to come. We are in the end times. Those who want a world without GOD, will loose. Let us lean on prayer for the things we cannot change.

Listen America, keep President Trump in office, he has done great things for America and will continue to do so. He has fought corruption and democrats, while he was trying to make and keep America great, and still came out on to. Shure, he talks rough, and says (the old phrase HOW THE COW ATE THE CABBAGE), pulls no punches, like a man with a set. The democrats don’t want him as our president, they will stop at nothing to including sacrificing America and Americans, they are loosing control of us and they are not happy that why the impeachment attack that failed then the coronavirus, then the protesting to tear down America and now here comes the coronavirus again, we must all vote by mail, All a coverup of the democrats corruption,
In GOD we must trust and trust President Trump as well keep America great.

NOBODY should vote by mail because the Democrats will use that to cheat and use fraud. They will make up thousands, if not millions, of illegal votes so they can win in the Democrat Party. All Republicans and Independents go to the polls and vote Republican all the way down your ballot so the Republicans win back control of the House and get even more Republicans Senators in the Senate. If the Democrats win the vote for President, keep control of the House and get control of the Senate, they WILL impeach Trump again because all the Democrats will vote to impeach Trump and the Democrat controlled Senate will all vote to impeach Trump too. Then the Democrats will kick Donald Trump out of being President and there will be nothing to stop them from doing that. Go vote at the polls and vote Republican all the way down the ticket for the President Trump, and for the House and Senate too. That’s the only way to stop the Democrats because they will make up millions of fake votes for the Democrats.

They are relentless.
As an American I will not lose my freedoms over fear. These lockdowns are to get us used to obeying to authority. All the medical professionals I have talked with think it’s a sham. I will NOT wear a mask of submission or NOT hug my family members. This is total B.S. I understand and I feel for folks that had the virus or lost someone they cared about. Unfortunately, to lock down America is NOT the answer. If you’re sick, STAY HOME!! Don’t expect everyone else to.

should never have been a lock down to start with. the biggest mistake trump has made so far is listening to fauci a democrat to shut down america instead of bringing other smart doctors in to give him advice. who wants to gather a fox to guard their hen house and that is what trump did. fauci is a liberal democrat that supports hillay clinton and nancy pelssi.

Amen to all your replies ! I think all this is a way for the government to take all our rights away. If they allow large groups to go out here and riot and root them on ,then we as law abiding citizens should have the right to get together without the government telling us we can’t. And how many in that group. Yes ,if you are sick ,stay home. The government is sticking their noses in all our business that includes churches. Don’t leave it up to each state governors , because ours wants to close everything and has so many regulations that you can’t do anything. Our churches are listening to him and the rules are ridiculous! Our last church service was March 8 and we can’t go back till the 21st. With so many rules and regulations ,it makes me sick. So please keep our country open ,we are sick of this !

Is there no way to shut the leftoids up and let us get some rest. The first shut down was a national travesty caused by imbeciles who merely wanted POWER. If it happens again, I hope every true American lives as he sees fit, regardless what some idiot politician demands. I have grown to see what the left IS, and almost EVERY politician in the USA. There are the hate filled ones (dems) and the scared to death ones (reps)…..none of which do much good….time to quit paying them, time to turn our government into about 1/10 of what it currently is. I am a free person and will stay home when I please, will attend church when I please, and I will do so as I SEE FIT, not as some idiotic politician demands I do differently.

The CDC and the Democrats can screw anything up. No more lock downs, no more taking our Liberties and Freedom. We know better than any Democratic Governor, who gets paid while we are told you cannot do anything. Being in NYS, Cuomo and his brother, Chris, are liars and jackasses. The governor must be charged with the murder of all the seniors who died in the nursing homes while he placed sick people in these nursing homes. For liberty and freedom we need President Trump and the republicans. No more lockdowns!!!

I’m sure the rioters spread the COVID 19 all over the place. Hopefully they are the only ones to contract it. With all the films I saw, only a couple of them were wearing masks and they were all up in each others faces as well as others. Let me make this clear, I am not talking about the protesters/peaceful marchers, I’m talking about the criminal element.

I have often wondered about why Whites are racists, and no other race is……
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.
And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You call me ‘White boy,’ ‘Cracker,’ ‘Honkey,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’… And that’s OK..
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you….
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET….
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that??
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships… You know we’d be racists.

This is the agenda of the left to keep locking us down until the economy collapses and they usher in the NWO.
That’s why they’re having the Sorus paid riots, tearing up and destroying the nation, dividing the people, causing a race war, defunding the cops. Everything is planned. Even the COVID is manmade. It’s a joke, but they are taking advantage of the opportunity to use it as an excuse, especially to those that are easy sells, bowing down to the devil on bended knee, and buying this crapola.

You got to be kidding me. Already blaming churches and opening restaurants for the reason there is a rise in covair-19 cases and suggesting another possible lock down now does that not take the cake? Simple thinking I will abide by another lock down when our government learns to control the present protest/riots/gang madness. If they are unable to clear a section of Seattle just exactly how do they propose to control and dictate to a whole nation? Get real this crap is simply dreamed up to get rid of Trump and us sheep need to start standing our ground just like Seattle. If they can’t rule one portion of a city good luck with the entire nation. Democrats talk big but as you see they have no leadership abilities. Just last night a black man was killed in Atlanta immediate rioting and burning a Wendi’s restaurant no arrest police fault as usual. Not meaning to justify but everything was just fine until he decided to resist arrest. Even if he was completely innocent resisting is futile and only brings on other problems. A free ride to jail and being cleared there would not have resulted in his death. If wronged file law suit get rich with no damages done except maybe pride that will not kill anyone and can be corrected being dead can not. One can be right but at the same time be dead. Fact the man was asleep in the drive-thru at Wendy’s did not know where he was and should not have been on public roads in that condition whether it was drugs,alcohol,health problem or whatever If you don’t have your senses about you then simply you do not belong behind the wheel of an automobile on public roads. Shooting any person who is running away from you can not be classified as fear of personal safety. We all agree there but let’s also look at all the facts not just some. This post will not be popular but it is factual as per the video on public TV this morning. 6/14/2020 Until we can have a factual conversation between nationalities there can be no peace for either.
