Newt Gingrich: ‘We’re going to have to prepare for a second wave’ of Coronavirus

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich told “Fox & Friends” Monday that the world is going to have to “prepare for a second wave” of the coronavirus.

“We’re going to have to prepare for a second wave. And that means a lot more investing in testing equipment, a lot more investing in the right therapies.” Gingrich said, “And, frankly, I think a more methodical approach to this that looks at individuals, not just populations.”

Further, Gingrich praised Sweden, Singapore, and South Korea for doing “a much better job with much less economic damage.”

Gingrich currently resides in Italy, where the total number of coronavirus cases appears “to be plateauing”, he said. As of Monday, there are 128,948 infected with the virus and 15,887 dead in Italy.

There is also encouraging news that New York, the epicenter for cases in the U.S., is starting to see a decline in the number of deaths.
