“Trump says U.S. in ‘very good shape’ on coronavirus. Health officials aren’t so confident.”
Top CDC Official in public briefing: “We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.”
“President Donald Trump said Tuesday said that the United States was in ‘very good shape’ when it comes to preparing for the deadly coronavirus illness known as COVID-19, while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned that it’s a matter of when — not if — it will spread across communities in the U.S.
“‘Ultimately we expect we will see community spread in this country,’ Dr. Nancy Messonier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters in a conference call. While the CDC has been preparing for a possible outbreak, Messonier said hospitals and schools should be doing the same.
“‘These are things that people need to start thinking about now,’ Messonier said. ‘We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.'”
“‘The disruption of daily life might be severe,’ Dr. Messonnier said.”
