Jerusalem Post, March 8, 2020:

….Pence’s speech is a departure from the guidelines the CDC posted to their website on Friday, which told older adults and those with serious medical conditions such as a heart, lung or kidney disease – rather than just the elderly with a serious health condition – to “stay home as much as possible” and “take actions to reduce your risk of exposure.”

.

Last week, Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of tropical medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, warned lawmakers not to downplay or minimize how severe the coronavirus risk is for vulnerable Americans. Speaking at a congressional hearing, Hotez explained that the coronavirus “is like the angel of death for older individuals,” AP reported.

According to Vanderblit University infectious diseases expert Dr. William Schaffner, “The clear message to people who fit into those categories is:

.

‘You ought to become a semi-hermit. You’ve got to really get serious in your personal life about social distancing, and in particular avoiding crowds of any kind….’”
