America’s top doctor left viewers stunned into silence with this coronavirus warning
Americans are still processing how the outbreak of the Chinese coronavirus will affect their everyday lives.
The public is hunkered down in their homes as the government imposes “social distancing” measures to stop the spread of the virus.
And now America’s top doctor left viewers stunned into silence with this coronavirus warning.
U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams appeared on NBC’s “Today Show” and delivered a stern warning to the public.
Dr. Adams told the viewing audience that this coming week would see the coronavirus escalate and that “it’s going to get bad.”
“I want America to understand, this week it’s going to get bad, and we really need to come together as a nation,” Adams told host Savannah Guthrie.
“I heard the stories that you were just playing: young people out on beaches. We see here in D.C. that the district set up a cam for people to watch the cherry blossoms. You look on the cam. You see more people walking around than you see cherry blossoms,” Adams warned.
Adams also admonished Americans who refused to abide by social distancing guidelines and instead went outside into crowded spaces.
“And this is how the spread is occurring. And so we really, really need everyone to stay at home,” Adam continued.
“I think that there are a lot of people who are doing the right things, but I think that, unfortunately, we’re finding out a lot of people think this can’t happen to them,” Adams told NBC.
Adams concluded his warning by cautioning that more major American cities could be ravaged by the Chinese coronavirus unless their citizens and local governments took strong steps to put social distancing guidelines in to place.
“We don’t want Dallas or New Orleans or Chicago to turn into the next New York, and it means everyone needs to be taking the right steps right now, and that means stay at home.”
