During a news conference on Friday, Gov. Ned Lamont said the state's positivity rate increased to 6.4 percent.

For the first time since the pandemic began, nearly every state is in deep red, according to a map from, experiencing what they’re calling “uncontrolled spread.”

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former FDA commissioner, joined Gov. Lamont’s COVID briefing on Thursday, and said this is now, more than ever, a national epidemic, as opposed to the regional epidemic that was seen in the spring.

That’s why he said the second wave will be the toughest to get through.

Gottlieb said he projects a very difficult two or three months because the expectation was always that the virus would be at its worst in the winter.

“This is the final stage of the acute phase of this pandemic that we need to get through. Unfortunately, it’s going to be the hardest phase right now, we’re in for a very difficult two or three months. We always thought the fall and winter were going to be the toughest period with this virus. This is a respiratory pathogen that would typically spread in the wintertime, now we’re in that winter,” Gottlieb said.

There is reason for hope. When we get through the next few months, Gottlieb said by the spring we should have a vaccine and antibodies which will hopefully get us out of this sooner.
