Spikes in novel coronavirus cases in parts of the United States will likely trigger closures in certain areas, but there will not be a nationwide shutdown, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Thursday.

Kudlow, in an interview on Fox Business Network, said he still expects to see a “strong v-” shaped economic recovery and anticipated a 20% growth “snapback” in the third and fourth quarters of 2020.
