Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams Says Americans Should Not Panic
Surgeon general: You’re going to see more cases of coronavirus(COVID 19), ‘doesn’t mean we should panic’.
Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that Americans should not panic as the number of confirmed coronavirus(COVID 19) cases increases across the country.
“We’ve been saying this all along. Initially, we had a posture of containment so that we could give people time to prepare for where we are right now,” Adams said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Now, we’re shifting into a mitigation phase, which means we’re helping communities understand, you’re going to see more cases. Unfortunately, you’re going to see more deaths, but that doesn’t mean that we should panic.”
Adams said individuals should do “the things that we know work for individuals to protect themselves,” including washing their hands frequently, covering their coughs and staying home if they’re sick.
