Read article - Quotes Alexandra Howell, professor of medicine and of microbiology and immunology, in an article about how New Hampshire health experts are highly recommending wearing facial coverings and to avoid large crowds as the state reopens. In just one week, from May 11 to May 18, the number of COVID-19 cases in New Hampshire went from 1,796 to 2,211. "It's difficult to attribute changes in the number of new cases to any one single factor, such as opening up businesses or schools," Howell said. "There is not enough known about how transmittable the virus is, why some people are infected but asymptomatic, and the period following exposure when one is most infectious."
