There are over 11.4 million cases of the virus worldwide, with over 535,000 deaths. The U.S. has over 2.89 million cases with over 130,000 deaths.
Texas will roll back some reopening plans as coronavirus cases have surged and hospitalizations have soared, about two months after allowing businesses to reopen.
“As I said from the start, if the positivity rate rose above 10%, the state of Texas would take further action to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said. “At this time, it is clear that the rise in cases is largely driven by certain types of activities, including Texans congregating in bars."
Bars in Texas were ordered to close by noon Friday. And restaurants will be required to operate at 50% capacity starting Monday.
So, we asked Jim Cramer, based on the numbers we're seeing during this pandemic, whether or not he'd be comfortable returning to normal.
When asked whether or not he's willing to go to a restaurant, Cramer said he's only comfortable eating outside.
"Outside, ready to do it right now. No doubt about it. Droplets can't go very far. The tables will be separate from each other. You can wear a mask to it, you can wear a mask when you're not eating. But outside eating, absolutely. Right now. Inside, not sure yet. If the tables aren't far enough, and they have to be really far, no thank you. But outside, a great joy and should be done," said Cramer.
