Dr. Gupta on Gov. Kemp’s Decision to Reopen Some Businesses: ‘This Is Almost All Risk, No Reward’

‘This is a public health mistake’


GUPTA: "This is a public health mistake. There’s no question about it. I mean, look, I think it’s reasonable to say this is a tough call for the Governor because I’m sure he has a lot of pressure on him. But this is not a tough call from a public health standpoint at all. And the more I think about it, Jake, the more I realize this is almost all risk and no reward. Because even if you do open things up — you talk to people around here, Jake, I live here, you talk to people, not just within the health care community, but people are going to be very understandably nervous about going to these places. Has that doorknob been sterilized? Has the person who is about to give me a haircut, have they been tested? Has this building been disinfected in some way? What about the ventilation?”
