Dr. Ashish Jha, dean at Brown University’s School of Public Health, tells TODAY that the U.S. doesn’t need a national lockdown to combat the unprecedented surge in coronavirus cases: “What you need is a targeted, focused effort on the things we know are spreading the disease.” He urges people to not celebrate Thanksgiving with guests outside their immediate families: “We’re so close to a vaccine rollout. This is not the time to make bad choices.”
