Nevada’s COVID-19 response director, after testing positive: ‘This virus is real’

Cage said he is feeling better than he was over the weekend and is grateful that the virus is not affecting him more severely. But he noted the more than 210,000 people across the U.S. who have died from the virus, calling COVID-19 “an extraordinary cause of death” and saying that to minimize its impact is “not only disrespectful to people who are dealing with this, to the most vulnerable, to people who represent demographics that are affected at a higher rate for various reasons … but it’s completely counter to the effort we should have from a national perspective.”

“We have a system in place and a good approach to this here,” Cage said, “and the more we can get people to take it seriously, I think the quicker we will be able to put all of this behind us.”
