Dr. Ashish Jha, the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute, says Northeast states like Massachusetts did “what the country needed to have done” in response to the coronavirus: shut down, stay shut down until they had crushed the so-called curve of infections, and then reopen slowly and methodically.

As a result, the once-hard-hit region became a relative success story, especially as other parts of the country grappled with unparalleled numbers of infections this summer. Jha says the outbreaks in those worse-hit states — Arizona, Florida, Texas — have begun showing signs of stabilizing. But now, he is turning back to places like his home state of Massachusetts and beginning to worry.
