Surgeon general says coming week will 'be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment' [View all]

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Sunday that the coming week could be a national catastrophe comparable to Pearl Harbor or the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

“This is going to be the hardest and saddest week of most Americans’ lives, quite frankly,” Adams said in an appearance on Fox News. “This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it’s not going to be localized. It’s going to be happening all over the country."

He added that the next 30 days would be critical for slowing the coronavirus’s spread, noting that some early hot spots are actually starting to contain the virus.

Roughly 90 percent of the country has been implementing stay-at-home orders, Adams said, despite the absence of a federal order.
