Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University’s school of public health, tells TODAY “I think this drop is real” as coronavirus numbers go down nationwide: “I think some of it is coming off the highs from the holidays. Second, I think there is evidence people are being a bit more assiduous” about safety precautions. He urges the public to be careful “just a little bit longer … by the later spring I think things will be much easier to open.”
