Miami Dade Mayor Francis Suárez commented that it is possible to contain the advance of COVID 19 without affecting the economy, but he does not rule out a new quarantine, “It is something that we are analyzing every day and we are going to take a very difficult decision in the coming days if this does not improve, “said Mayor Suarez.
He also commented that the increase in Covid 19 cases that were registered on July 12 in that state was “not positive”, however, he said that it was “a bit strong” to currently compare Miami with Wuhan when the pandemic started.
“For now, mortality has remained low, we have enough (hospital) capacity for at least the next few weeks and we have taken measures to reduce the curve of the increase in infections. Obviously we need the cooperation of our residents to get to that point, “Were Suárez’s comments.
