Obama Urges Americans To ‘Stay Calm’ And ‘Listen To The Experts’ During Coronavirus Outbreak




Former President Obama urged Americans to “stay calm” amid rising fears over the international outbreak of a novel coronavirus, urging Americans to take “common sense precautions” to protect “yourself and your community.”

“Protect yourself and your community from coronavirus with common sense precautions: wash your hands, stay home when sick and listen to the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and local health authorities,” he tweeted early Wednesday.

“Save the masks for health care workers. Let’s stay calm, listen to the experts, and follow the science,” he continued.



As of Wednesday afternoon, 13 U.S. states have reported confirmed or “presumptive cases” of the virus to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).




There have been 148 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in the U.S., which includes 48 people who contracted the virus on a cruise ship. Nine deaths have been recorded in the U.S. so far.
