BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — While many states and cities have begun reopening amid the coronavirus pandemic, including New Hampshire, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says that it is still too early for the city to consider reopening.
"I think it's a little too early to be thinking about that," Walsh said about reopening Boston along with the rest of Massachusetts. "As they say, there's 'a lifetime in a day here' with the coronavirus. And it’s one of those things that everyday seems to be different and it changes.”
Mayor Walsh also said that if the reopening process is not done properly, “there could be a second spike.” He said that a second spike could mean that businesses might have to close again.
“And it’s something I don’t want to do,” Walsh said. But, he said it’s necessary the city does “everything we can to keep the number of cases down.”
Walsh also said that the city is watching whether cases do go down in the city this week.
“This is a big week for us to be looking at numbers and analyzing hospital stay and emergency room visits and intensive care units,” Walsh said.
