The Surgeon General Just Made a 'Scary' Admission About the COVID Surge
With only 4 million of a promised 20 million COVID-19 vaccines administered, Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, promises the effort will "ramp up" and urges you to "have hope," he said on CNN this morning. "We're using everything to get these vaccines into arms," he said. But we're in danger until then—severe danger. More than 350,000 Americans have died of coronavirus, with many more projected to die soon; when asked about President Trump denying these numbers, as he did in a tweet this morning, Adams said he has no reason to believe they weren't true. "What I want people to know is, the projections are pretty, pretty scary, but they're projections—and what we do now matters," he said. Read on to see what he feels you need to do "to temper this surge"—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You've Already Had Coronavirus.
