CNN medical analyst Dr. Sanjay Gupta threw more cold-water on millions of Americans hoping to resume a semi-normal life this week; saying cities should not ease CoVID restrictions because there are “still people who are vulnerable.”
“Cases continue to drop. That’s a good thing. Now you see cities talking about ending some restrictions. There are things that make some sense. But is the rest a good idea right now?” asked the anchor.
“No. It’s not a good idea. We’re still very much in the middle of this. The case numbers may decline, death rates are lower, hospitalizations are down. But clearly there’s still a very dangerous virus out there and there are people who are vulnerable,” said Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
“You’re looking at this data… Even if cases come back up, and they might, do the hospitalizations follow?” he asked. “We’ll see.”

HELL FREEZES OVER: CNN’s Tapper, Gupta RIP Cuomo’s ‘Wildly Irresponsible’ CoVID Comments
The escalating CoVID scandal surrounding Governor Andrew Cuomo spilled-over into CNN’s news coverage this week when Jake Tapper and medical analyst Sanjay Gupta ripped the New York Democrat’s comments as “wildly irresponsible.”
“When I say experts in air quotes, it sounds like I’m saying I don’t really trust the experts. Because I don’t. Because I don’t,” said the New York Governor during a press briefing.

“Sanjay, that seems like a wildly irresponsible thing for a leader to say during a pandemic. We need the public to believe the experts. Do you have any concerns?,” Tapper asked Gupta
“I’m really quite stunned that that’s what he said, and I’m curious to talk to him and understand, clarify that a bit,” Gupta responded. “I mean, it is true that New York has had success. They had terrible numbers in the spring of last year but were able to bring those numbers under control. A lot of that was because of the experts and because of sort of carrying through on plans that sometimes are hard to sort of understand at the time.”
