Rossen Responds: Why many cities are still at risk of coronavirus surges

"New York fought really hard and we came through," an ER doctor said. "It’s upsetting because the rest of the country hasn’t learned lessons from this. "


It’s been a grim week with new coronavirus numbers.

States across the country have cases that are surging and seemingly out of control.

Hospital bed shortages mean people could be turned away from hospitals here in America.

Here's what’s going on and what’s going to happen in the coming weeks and months.

Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University.

And Dr. Rajeev Fernando is an infectious disease expert and ER doctor. He was in China investigating the outbreak in Wuhan and is now serving on the frontlines treating COVID-19 patients.

We are months into this pandemic, so how is it possible that we’re still having problems in big cities like Miami, with shortages on ICU beds? What needs to change? What about statements about hot weather and the virus? And in the states where cases are rising, what do they need to do to open safely?

Watch the above video for answers to those questions and more.
