“The next week is going to be our Pearl Harbour moment. It’s going to be our 9/11 moment,” Jerome Adams told NBC News’ Meet the Press.

“It’s going to be the hardest moment for many Americans in their entire lives, and we really need to understand that if we want to flatten that curve and get through to the other side, everyone needs to do their part,” he added.

Dr Anthony Fauci, USA’s top infectious diseases expert, also echoed similar feelings and said, “This is probably going to be a very bad week.”
