WGR 550 Sports Radio interviews Thomas A. Russo, MD
, professor of medicine
and chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases
, about Western New York’s phased reopening in light of COVID-19, and preparations for Phase 3. “We’re definitely at the right point to try this. Our cases are at an all-time low since the beginning of this outbreak,” Russo says. He cautions, however, that Phase 1 and 2 were akin to “minor league ball,” whereas now “we’re going to the “big leagues.” He notes that some indoor activities are included in Phase 3, and says people must remain careful. The region is still in the early phases of the pandemic, he says, which means most people are still susceptible to the virus.
