I might ask the Surgeon General – is there anything about the guidance you want to reflect on?
[Jerome Adams (Surgeon General of the United States):]
Well, one thing I want folks to know is that we have been looking at the data from around the world, and we now know more than we ever have about who is at risk. Who is at risk – and I hope you will help us communicate this to the American people – are people over the age of 60; they’re much more likely to develop complications from the coronavirus and to be hospitalized from the coronavirus. The average age of death is age 80.
Now, what we also want communities to know is that if you are a child or young adult, you are much more – you’re more likely to die from the flu, if you get it, than you are to die from coronavirus. So there’s something about being young that is protective.
We want people to be reassured by that.
We want people to know that we are really focusing in on those groups that are at highest risk for complications, and helping them understand how to be safe.
So it’s important we all take precautions: washing our hands, covering our cough, keeping our distance from people who are sick, and taking the steps that will be coming out in this new guidance to help make sure we’re doing everything we know possible to keep our most vulnerable protected.
[Vice President Mike Pence:]
Great. Well done. Thank you.
