US Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the US can turn coronavirus around in ‘2 or 3 weeks if everyone does their part’

US Surgeon General Jerome Adams says the US could turn around its novel coronavirus infections in two to three weeks if “everyone does their part” by following official recommendations like social distancing and use of face coverings.

Adams appeared on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, two days after the US recorded more than 65,000 COVID-19 infections, its most in a single day. Adams said that despite sharp rises in states across the country, if Americans follow guidelines en masse, the US could see near-immediate decreases in infections.

“So 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 distancing, doing the things that we know are effective,” Adams said.
