The 15-person White House coronavirus task force urged Americans to avoid groups larger than 10 people in a newly aggressive effort to reduce the spread of the disease in the United States.
The announcement came at a press conference of nearly 100 people.
“Our large group of very smart people have been meeting in person for the last day and a half,” a task force spokesperson said, “and our conclusion is that large groups shouldn’t be meeting in person.”
The concept, called social distancing, is meant to reduce the reproduction of the virus and keep people out of the hospital longer.
“We’ve made the decision to further toughen the guidelines by enforcing a maximum capacity in any one place of 10 people,” President Trump told the dozens of reporters at the White House.
One of the 15-person task force which recommended a maximum of 10 people per gathering also recommended washing hands thoroughly and never touching your face, at which time she licked her fingers to shuffler her papers.
The disease, while deadly to certain populations is not the worst part of the crisis. The CDC has warned that the current outbreak of stupidity following the outbreak is worse than the outbreak of coronavirus.
