The New York Post reports:
The US surgeon general on Sunday warned Americans that the coming week will be the “hardest and the saddest” in most people’s lives due to the coronavirus pandemic — comparing it to Pearl Harbor and 9/11.
“It’s tragically fitting that we’re talking at the beginning of Holy Week because this is going to be the hardest and the saddest week of most Americans’ lives,” Jerome Adams said on “Fox News Sunday.”
“This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment and our 9/11 moment only it’s not going to be localized, it’s going to be happening all over the country.” There “is a light at the end of the tunnel if everyone does their part for the next 30 days,” he said. “There is hope but we’ve also got to all do our part.”

After downplaying the threat of the deadly #coronavirus, US @Surgeon_General now warns: “This is going to be the hardest and saddest week of most Americans’ lives. This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11.”
If only he’d warned this EARLIER.🤬pic.twitter.com/0wxKzDNTY4
