DC Mayor Doesn’t Expect COVID Peak Until June

The Hill reports:

Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) projected Sunday that the city’s coronavirus peak will likely come in June.

“We expect that that could happen in Washington, D.C. in June,” Bowser told Fox’s Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” saying “our residents are doing everything that we ask so that we can push down the number of peak cases and push out when that surge would happen in D.C.”

Asked why she projected the surge would occur so late relative to areas like New York, Bowser told Wallace she believed citywide interventions in early March such as the closure of large public venues, bars and dine-in restaurants “pushed back when the peak might occur.”
