Frustrated protesters have been rallying, demanding that governors reopen state economies. Health officials worry that a premature opening could make economic and health problems even worse.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Hundreds of protesters gathered in front of the Colorado state Capitol in Denver yesterday. They demanded the governor lift the state's stay-at-home order and allow Colorado's economy to reopen in spite of the coronavirus. Here is Deesa Hurt speaking to Colorado Public Radio.

DEESA HURT: I'm watching businesses close. I'm watching friends lose their incomes and their livelihoods. And we just want to reopen Colorado. That's all we want.

GREENE: Now, there have been similar public rallies in state capitals across the country. President Trump supports the protesters, saying the governors of some states have gone, quote, "too far."
