Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, recently appeared on Fox News to talk about what the country’s millennials can do to help older generations, who are at higher risk to develop complications from the disease.
Millennials make up a large part of the population, Dr. Birx said, particularly in urban areas. They’re also the generation who can help grandparents and parents stay in touch virtually. Millennials can help their older family members with the social isolation that comes with self-quarantines.
Dr. Birx believes millennials are the core group that will stop the virus. This larger cohort of younger people must take precautions and practice social distancing to protect parents and grandparents. She discusses what we all have to do to avoid exposure and potentially contracting and spreading COVID-19.
Should we have national rules for social distancing? Listen to what Dr. Birx has to say.
