“There is no second wave coming. It’s just hot spots. They send in CDC teams, we’ve got the testing procedures, we’ve got the diagnostics, we’ve got the PPE. And so I really think it’s a pretty good situation,” said Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council and chief economic advisor to President Donald Trump.

“Actually, I think nationwide the positivity rate is still quite low, well under 10%.” 

  • Kudlow said he isn’t too concerned about resurgences of Covid-19 cases in several states around the country.
  • “There is no second wave coming. It’s just hot spots. They send in CDC teams, we’ve got the testing procedures, we’ve got the diagnostics,” he said.
  • His comments came after the U.S. reported more than 30,000 new infections on Friday and Saturday, the highest daily totals since May 1.
  • Kudlow also discussed the odds of another fiscal stimulus package from Congress and the White House.
