Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Surgeon general says U.S. can reverse coronavirus surge in a few weeks 'if everyone does their part'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Sunday the U.S. can reverse course and control the latest outbreaks of the coronavirus in just a few weeks if people follow social distancing and hygiene guidelines to prevent the spread of the potentially fatal virus. 

“Together we can turn this thing around in just two to three weeks if everyone does their part, more studies coming out showing the effectiveness of face coverings,” Adams said on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” adding that the disease course is about two to three weeks. 

“Just as we've seen cases skyrocket, we can turn this thing around in two to three weeks if we can get a critical mass of people wearing face coverings, practicing at least 6 feet of social distance, doing the things we know are effective,” he said. “And it’s important for the American people to understand when we’re talking about the fall, we have the ability to turn this around very quickly if people will do the right thing.”
