Dr. Jerome Adams, the U.S. surgeon general, tells TODAY that people across the country – including his own children – are “taking the coronavirus seriously” now that they see it affecting people they know. He talks about the 15 Days to Slow the Spread initiative urging people to stay at home and avoid unnecessary travel, saying, “if we can get all America to pitch in for the next 15 days, we can flatten the curve.”
