Appearing on “CBS This Morning” Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams discussed the next phase of America’s coronavirus response and answered questions about concerns..
Surgeon General Jerome Adams:
We really want people to understand it’s about preparation but not panic and that you can’t build a toilet paper fortress that’s going to keep coronavirus out.
We’ve got a choice to make. Do we want to follow the trajectory of a South Korea where they had aggressive mitigation measures and everyone really leaned into this issue or do we want to follow the trajectory of Italy where we’re seeing a rapid increase in cases and more deaths?
The CDC put out guidelines just this morning saying that we should no longer have large gatherings of more than 50 people. We really are all in this together and we want people to think about social isolation, social distancing so we can make sure that coronavirus isn’t being spread in our communities.
