When it comes to creating an action plan on the steps we should take next, our primary objective needs to focus on not causing any harm to the progress we have made so far, otherwise, our infection and hospitalization rates will go right back up.

Our healthcare system has been amazing throughout this pandemic, and we are going to continue working with them to ramp up testing even more, including through antibody tests and contact tracing. This approach is key to getting people back to work and ensuring that workers are adequately protected when they return.

According to the State’s Chief Epidemiologist, Dr. Cartter, the number of infected is likely much higher than the current number recorded, and that with more testing centers opening the number of positive cases are likely to spike.

The governor reiterated that though several hospitals in the state are holding coronavirus testing stations, only those with doctor prescriptions can drive through.

Dr. Matthew Cartter with the Connecticut Department of Public Health said staff at hospitals in the state are working hard around the clock.

“Not very far away from here in Greenwich Connecticut, in Greenwich Hospital, they are working 24/7; the doctors nurses and others haven’t been sleeping for days, they are totally full, same with Danberry and Bridgeport Hospital,” he said.

Lamont also said state officials are trying to figure out how to get more hospital staff and beds.

“Our team is looking at facilities when it comes to university dorms, when it comes to hotel space, we think we have enough capacity, but we are thinking a little bit about the outside mash type units which will be easier drive-by clinics.”
