The coronavirus is spreading all over the US as temperatures fall and more people gather indoors.
On Thursday, both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the White House urged people to stay home this Thanksgiving and keep celebrations single-household affairs.
At the White House press conference, Dr. Deborah Birx spoke in front of an alarming map that showed COVID-19 outbreaks everywhere.
Hours later, the White House coronavirus task force also held a briefing to urge extra caution, stressing that no one should be gathering indoors with people from other households now or next week.
"We're asking every American to remain valiant," Dr. Deborah Birx, the coronavirus-response coordinator, said on Thursday afternoon at the White House, suggesting Thanksgiving-as-usual should be canceled.
