Federal Health Officials Optimistic About Connecticut’s Reopening

By Nicole Leonard

Connecticut’s continuing decline in the number of daily hospitalizations, as well as an uptick in testing capabilities, has both state officials and federal health experts confident that Wednesday’s reopening will be successful.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a Westport resident and former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under the Trump Administration, joined the state daily briefing remotely today.

“We’re at a point in this state that we can start to contemplate a thoughtful stage of reopening of economic activity, having been successful at flattening the curve and making sure that the health care system didn’t get overwhelmed,” he said. “Now we’re at that moment to try to restart activity in a thoughtful way.”

On the eve of Connecticut’s first phase of reopening, 914 people are currently hospitalized for COVID-19, a drop of six people from Monday.

Gottlieb: ‘We’re Going to See Cases Grow’

Westporter Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former FDA commissioner, told Gov. Ned Lamont’s news conference today that as the state reopens from the coronavirus, “there will be an uptick in cases. We expected that. We’re going to see more hospitalizations. We’re going to see cases grow. That’s why it is important to have a staged reopening as the state is doing.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Screen grab from CT-N
