Some States to Begin Reopening Economies This Week

With some 95% of Americans under lockdown amid disaster declarations in all 50 states in response to the coronavirus pandemic, governors are making plans to reopen business and public life.

Texas Republican Gov. Greg Abbott wants to begin opening parts of his state next week, ahead of his previous May 1 target.

“We want to open. Texans love to work. Texans are dying to get back to work,” Abbott told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night. “We want them to get back to work, but we have to do so in a very safe way so that we don’t regenerate the spread of the coronavirus in the state of Texas.” . . .

The White House, according to sources familiar with the matter who spoke to Breitbart News, said about 20 states intend to begin the reopening process as early as later this week but definitely before the end of April. . .

Cuomo said Monday that his state, which has become the epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, has contained the coronavirus and “the worst is over.”
