BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Despite new restrictions on interstate recreation, New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu says he expects coronavirus numbers there to get worse before they get better.

Sununu Thursday said the state is prepared to open up a surge hospital if it has to. “We have 350 cases today. If you ask me where we’re gonna be in two weeks, I think we’re over 1,000. I think that’s it, and we’re preparing for that,” he said.

Sununu pointed out that while the total number of deaths continues to increase -- it now stands at 495 -- the percentage of people who get the virus and die is far lower than we saw in the spring.
