Is it safe to reopen?
States across the country are reopening one by one, and yet coronavirus case numbers have spiked in the places that got the earliest start.
This week, KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo try to figure out: is this safe?
First, a case study of Arizona, which is on track to be the latest coronavirus hotspot.
Then, Dave and Aaron discuss the politics of reopening. When did the virus become a partisan issue?
Finally, we consult several epidemiologists. What’s really safe? And where will we be in the fall?
