Surgeon General Jerome Adams said Sunday that the next week or two will be the critical time for halting the spread of the coronavirus.
"Next week is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, next week is going to be our 9/11 moment," Adams, told NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd.
"You've got to be Rosie the Riveter. You’ve got to do your part."
"It’s going to be the hardest moment for many Americans in their entire lives," he also said.
