The Surgeon General warned the public that they need to say home and flatten the curve as urged the nation to ‘come together.’
Enraged over images of people still socializing, despite the warnings, Dr. Jerome Adams went on the Today show to criticize people still going out, for instance to the beach or flocking to see the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C.
‘I want America to understand. This week, it’s going to get bad. We really need to come together as a nation. You’re seeing young people out in beaches – here in DC.
‘The district set up a cam to watch the cherry blossoms. You look on the cam and you see more people than cherry blossoms. This is how the spread is occurring.
‘We really, really need everyone to stay at home. I think there are a lot of people who are doing the right thing. But unfortunately, we’re finding out a lot of people think this can’t happen to them.’
‘It’s important for people to know: You can get this disease, you can be hospitalized from this disease, you can die from this disease.
‘Most importantly, you can spread it to your loved ones.’
And despite Trump’s just saying this morning that the quarantine might just last 15 days,
…the doctor cautioned that it will actually be longer than that given that ‘our 15 days initiative was really based on the fact that when it came out a week ago, we were two weeks behind Italy.’
Believe this guy, rather than the President.
