There's concern a 3rd coronavirus wave in the U.S. could be 'more diffused,' less concentrated

There's concern a 3rd coronavirus wave in the U.S. could be 'more diffused,' less concentratedFirst, the good news. Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb told CBS News' Margaret Brennan during Sunday's edition of Face the Nation that there have been positive developments in the United States' battle with the coronavirus pandemic -- cases and hospitalizations are declining, and Gottlieb also expects deaths, a lagging factor, will start to trend downward soon, as well.The tide is turning as Sun Belt states like Arizona and Florida see improvements, but Gottlieb said there's still cause for concern. Cases are building in the West and Midwest, indicating a third wave -- the first being the early epidemic in the New York tri-state area, followed by the more recent explosion of cases in the Sun Belt -- could be coming.What has experts like Gottlieb particularly concerned is that if those states do see a significant flare-up "it could be more diffused" and "spread across a broader section" of the country. > Good news?
