Surgeon General: We Can Turn This in Right Direction if Americans Follow Key Precautions
During a Monday morning appearance on Fox News, Surgeon General Jerome Adams urged Americans to follow key health precautions to avoid the risk of the United States becoming the next Italy, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak outside of Mainland China. If Americans do take these measures, he explained, we could turn the situation in the right direction.
“When you look at the projections, there’s every chance we could be Italy, but there’s every hope that we will be South Korea if people actually listen, if people actually social-distance, if people do the basic public health measures that we’ve all been talking about as doctors all along, such as washing your hands such as covering your cough, and cleaning surfaces.”
As The Daily Wire has previously reported, an Italian medical society has recommended that doctors in the country prepare to turn away patients based on age and the presence of other chronic medical conditions, which would elongate care and diminish medical resources more quickly. Read more…
Romney Wants Government to Send $1K to Every American Adult Amid Coronavirus Crisis
Utah Sen. Mitt Romney on Monday called on Congress to pass legislation that would “immediately” send $1,000 checks to every American adult to help them cover expenses during the coronavirus crisis.
That was one of several proposals Romney, a Republican, put forward Monday in his effort to help small businesses and individuals.
The Utah senator and 2012 GOP presidential nominee said his proposals would “build on” the coronavirus package passed by the House of Representatives that the Senate is set to consider this week, but it is unclear if Romney will push for these proposals in that bill or in a potential third bill that has been hinted at by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“The House coronavirus response package contains critical measures to help families in Utah and across the nation in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, and the Senate should act swiftly on this legislation,” Romney said in a press release.
He added: “We also urgently need to build on this legislation with additional action to help families and small businesses meet their short-term financial obligations, ease the financial burden on students entering the workforce, and protect health workers on the front lines and their patients by improving telehealth services. I will be pushing these measures as Senate discussions continue about an additional relief package.” Read more…
