  • After Baker relaxes some pandemic restrictions, epidemiologists urge caution

    Boston Globe - 01/25/2021

    Samuel Scarpino, an epidemiologist at Northeastern University, also expressed concerns about the restriction rollback.

    “Although I agree with the [governor] that the indicators are headed in a better direction, we are in a really precarious situation with respect to hospitalizations,” Scarpino wrote in an e-mail, adding that Baker’s move “to relax measures sends the wrong message. It communicates that things are safer, which is not the case. Things are finally headed in a safer direction, but we need to stay on this trajectory for a few weeks until the hospitalization numbers come way down.”
