  • Hi, I'm Dr. Nancy Messonnier, from CDC.

  • I'd like to give you the latest update on the novel coronavirus spreading in the U.S.,

  • known as COVID-19.

  • As of Sunday evening March 8, 34 states plus New York City and DC reported more than 500

  • cases.

  • While right now our most affected states are California and Washington,

  • the number of affected states, cases, and deaths will continue to rise.

  • That's why I'd like to talk to you about risk.

  • Risk can be looked at in two ways: there's risk of being exposed and getting sick from

  • this virus, and there's risk of getting very sick or dying from illness with this virus.

  • This virus is capable of spreading easily and sustainably from person-to-person.

  • And there's essentially no immunity against this virus in the population because it's

  • new.

  • Based on this, it's fair to say that as the trajectory of the outbreak continues, many

  • people in the United States will at some point in time, either this year or next, be exposed

  • to this virus and there's a good chance they will become sick.

  • But again, we do not expect most people to develop serious illness.

  • This seems to be a disease that affects adults, and most seriously older adults.

  • Starting at 60 there is an increased risk of death and the risk increases with age.

  • The highest risk of serious illness and death is in people older than 80.

  • People with serious underlying health conditions also are more likely to develop serious outcomes,

  • including death.

  • I'd like to go through our recommendations for people at highest risk:

  • Make sure you have supplies on hand, like routine medications for blood pressure and

  • diabetes.

  • Have enough household items and groceries so that you will be prepared to stay at home

  • for a period.

  • Avoid crowds, especially in poorly ventilated spaces.

  • Travelers, particularly those with underlying health issues, should defer all cruise ship

  • travel worldwide.

  • We also recommend that people at higher risk avoid non-essential long plane trips.

  • Last and most important, know what's going on in your community.

  • I understand these recommendations may not be popular and that they may be difficult

  • for some people.

  • At CDC, our number one priority is the health and safety of the American people.

  • These are the kind of recommendations I've made to my parents.

  • Everyone has a role to play in helping to protect our family members, friends, colleagues,

  • and neighbors who are most at risk.

  • Check CDC's website for the latest information: cdc.gov/covid19

  • and know what's going on in your community.

  • Let's work together to protect each other.
