Dr. Woody Myers Concerned About Rise in Coronavirus Cases

Indianapolis, IND – Indiana’s presumptive Democratic nominee for Governor Dr. Woody Myers is concerned about an increase in the number of Hoosier coronavirus cases amid the Governor’s reopening plan. The Indiana State Department of Health reported the number of positive coronavirus cases in the state rose to 26,655 Friday, up 602 from the day before. That’s the highest number of new cases since May 8. 

“The increase in cases is concerning as Indiana reopens businesses and restaurants with restrictions and eases social distancing guidelines,” Myers said. “I’ve been concerned that Governor Holcomb was giving in to pressure and reopening too soon. The rise in cases shows that fear was justified. We are far from flattening the curve. IUPUI’s Fairbanks School of Health study showed there is far more infection in Indiana than previously expected and it validated the need for more testing. I urge Hoosiers to continue avoiding large gatherings and staying home to socially isolate as much as possible. The asymptomatic spread of coronavirus is rapidly moving forward.  Governor Holcomb’s decisions mean more people will become infected – and some will not survive.”
