Surgeon General on Coronavirus Outbreak: ‘This Week, It’s Going to Get Bad’

The nation’s top doctor issued a clarion call Monday for people to abide by government mandates to stay indoors amid the coronavirus pandemic that continues to claim lives and sack the economy.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams delivered a sobering warning during an appearance on NBC’s “Today” the ongoing crisis is going to worsen this week and that people across the country are not taking the threat seriously enough.

“I want America to understand, this week it’s going to get bad, and we really need to come together as a nation,” Adams said. “I heard the story [about] young people out on beaches. We see here in D.C. that the District set up a [camera] for people to watch the cherry blossoms. But if you look on the cam, you see more people walking around than you see cherry blossoms and this is how the spread is occurring. … Everyone needs to be taking the right steps right now, and that means stay at home.”

There are now more than 34,000 coronavirus cases in the United States and more than 400 Americans have died, with New York currently being the epicenter of the outbreak, CNN reported Monday.
