America has reached a level of more than four million coronavirus tests per week, one that was a goal when the COVID-19 pandemic began earlier this year.
However, the surgeon general says that there is “runaway demand, cases out of control” because not enough people are taking the three precautions that health experts have preached for months.
“People are having trouble staying vigilant…understanding that this virus doesn’t care about state lines,” said U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams on Wisconsin’s Afternoon News Tuesday.
“It’s why we need to do simple things like face coverings, washing our hands and watching our distance, staying at least six feet apart.”
He said that for schools to open and for people to be able to return to church more, those three basic steps are critical.
Listen above to the full interview, where Adams discusses re-opening of schools and how sports are operating in this time of the virus.
