Nothing infuriates me more than 'highly' educated people who achieved their positions by currying favours and not because of their intelligence, common sense or experience. Remember when President George W. Bush put Mike Brown in charge of FEMA to head Katrina Hurricane relief efforts or President Trump appointing Ben Carson as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)? Mr. Carson was confused by OREOES during a recent congressional hearing! Jerome Adams was the Health Commissioner of Indiana, where Mike Pence was Governor. He stepped into his new role as U.S. Surgeon General the same day he left his previous position.
The JOB of the U.S. Surgeon General is to advise the President and the Administration on matters concerning the well being and health of the American people, especially in a time of crisis. They should also provide clear communications and directives for the benefit of all citizens. Jerome Adams did none of this. He went from low to high tempo, spewing useless, and often INCORRECT information, whilst 'parroting' the Trump Administration.
Included below is a taped conversation with CNN's Jake Tapper, posted 8th March 2020, where he asked the Surgeon General direct questions including the number of Covid-19 tests that had been administered in the U.S. Please take special note of 08:13, where Mr. Adams states there were '75,000 tests available right now' and by 'early next week, tomorrow, we should have OVER 2 million tests.' BUT why stop there? He continues ramping up that number to 'OVER 4 million tests by the end of the week.' He continued to parrot that 'anyone who needed a test could get one from their health care provider,' which turned out to be FALSE. The reality is that the testing shortage for those that needed it continued throughout the month of March, leading into April 2020.
The U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams was widely quoted as saying that the flu was more deadly than the Coronavirus. He also chastised American citizens for buying masks to PROTECT themselves. These were NOT American HOARDERS, these were CONCERNED citizens. NOW, Jerome Adams is telling ALL Americans that the next week is going to be a 'Pearl Harbour moment.' Which is it? His message has been INCONSISTENT from the beginning.
Here is what ALL Americans should do to keep you safe and healthy whilst 'sheltering in place.'
1. Maintain a health and wellness regiment. This includes nutrients to fuel your body including fruits, vegetables and protein. Supplements such as Vitamin D3 can play an important role, especially due to lack of daily sunshine indoors. Exercise and meditation can help boost your immune system and mental health.
2. Mask and glove up when shopping for essentials. Consider shopping for two weeks to 30 days supply, depending on your pantry space and refrigeration capacity. Use a list when shopping so you can quickly obtain what you need and avoid lingering within a confine space. Please take additional safety measures. You can click here for more information on how to wear a mask, how to make a mask and other safety considerations when outside your 'safety zone.'
3. Washing your hands vs. Hand sanitiser. Here is the reason why you need to wash your hand for at least 20 seconds, which is the time it takes to sing "Happy Birthday." Research had shown that washing your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds is effective in killing the virus. Take an extra 10 seconds, if you wish. For this same reason, we are also suggesting using the hand sanitiser for the same length of time as washing with soap and water. It is better to be over-prepared than under prepared. Use a hand sanitiser when wearing gloves. The reason we are suggesting using a hand sanitiser when wearing gloves is that the over use of hand sanitiser on skin may create a resistance and even kill good bacteria. Hand sanitiser should be used as a last resort, if soap and water are not available.

4. Avoid touching your face. The virus is an opportunist. This means it will try to access your system through several passages. These include the eyes, nose and mouth. Don't be deceived by the "new" reports that the CDC "just" figured out that spit and aerosol from talking can also spread the virus. OF COURSE THEY CAN. This is NOT a new concept. For this reason, the CDC, WHO and even the U.S. Surgeon General should have been actively promoting masks from the start.
KTLA - The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published new guidelines about COVID-19 transmission. It says the virus is spread mainly from person-to-person contact. And goes on to say the virus does not spread easily from touching infected surfaces or objects. 21/05/2020. (Update) Andy Riesmeyer of KTLA pointed out that due to the misinformation provided by CDC, WHO and US Surgeon General Jerome Adams, he had been telling viewers not to wear masks. Use 'common sense' and continue 'best practices,' even when touching surfaces. Wear a face covering and gloves in public (our recommendation), wash your hands and/or use a hand sanitiser on gloves and hands before you touch your face. Always remove a mask from the ear loop or headband, never from the front. Place the mask in a bag, like a zip loc. A cloth mask should be washed after every use. Surgical masks are one time use, but can be extended if used in conjunction with a cloth mask (over it for added protection).

Worldometers.com - Worldwide testing results per capita. 09/04/2020. According to this map, the U.S. tested less than 3 million citizens, BUT according to the U.S. Surgeon General, Jerome Adams on 8th March 2020, they would have 'OVER 4 million tests by the end of the week.' THIS WAS A LIE.

Why 6 Feet May Not Be Enough To Protect Yourself From Coronavirus. 21/04/2020 (Update)
Update: 09/04/2020 - In another attempt to make light of Covid-19, Jerome Adams tweeted a comparison of Covid-19 activity to the 2019-20 Influenza Season Week 4. We don't know what he was trying to prove, but whatever he tweeted was liked by 958+ followers who probably did not prepare for what was to come. He later would say that Covid-19 was our "Pearl Harbour moment" and even equated it to 9/11. The PROBLEM is that both Pearl Harbour and 9/11 were sneak attacks. Covid-19 was being actively tracked by the scientific community and there was chatter about it long before it landed on U.S. shores. Jerome Adams had access to these reports, but for whatever reason IGNORED to read them just like he was 'unaware' of the Pandemic Warnings that circulated at the White House back in January 2020.
Today - Surgeon General Jerome Adams: I ‘Never Saw’ Memo Warning Of Pandemic. 07/04/2020.
Update: 08/04/2020 - Jerome Adams states he never saw the letter warning of coming Pandemic. When confronted with testing shortages, he blamed the states, albeit he told Jake Tapper on 8th March 2020 that they would have 'Over 4 million tests available by the end of the week.' When asked about the Wisconsin election, he states "As a black man, I, I know people have died for the right to vote." He forgot to research that the Governor of Wisconsin tried to allow mail-in-ballots to ensure the safety of his citizens. Like a child proud of his 'arts and craft' class more than expressing any "original" thought, he displays the mask he made, whilst chastising millions of Americans to stop buying masks, because in his tweet he claimed that masks were "Not effective in preventing general public from catching coronavirus." This guy will say just about anything that is "hot" news of the moment, including 'parroting' the disparity of African Americans dying in record numbers, albeit he has done NOTHING for the African American community since becoming U.S. Surgeon General. He has not provided any solutions or added any viable point of view to the conversation.
U.S. Surgeon General Warns To Brace For ‘Our Pearl Harbor Moment’, Jeremy Bash disagrees. 06/04/2020
Update: 09/04/2020 - On 29 February 2020, Jerome Adams tweeted the above, linking an Editorial in the New England Journal of Medicine, titled, 'Covid-19 - Navigating the Unchartered,' authored by Anthony S. Fauci, M.D., H. Clifford Lane M.D. and Robert R. Redfield M.D. As evidenced by Mr. Adams tweet, he quotes one SMALL aspect of the report to support his theory that Covid-19 was more a 'seasonal influenza,' like the flu. Included is the paragraph where this was mentioned. Unfortunately, Mr. Adams did NOT read the WHOLE report where it was ALSO mentioned that this Novel Coronavirus has the potential for "increased infectivity during the period of minimal symptoms." It also has a reproduction number of 2.2 which means for every infected person, they in turn infect two people. Mr. Adams must have forgotten to read where "social distancing" was advocated to mitigate the infection in the United States, IF they could not contain the virus. We have included the full Editorial. Addendum - IF one reads the Editorial in its entirety and without a filter, you will SEE that the quote by Jerome Adams was taken out of context. The report does not say that the fatality rate is less than 1%, it states, "If one assumes that the number of asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases..." Unfortunately, we know that majority of the deaths were attributed to 'pre-existing' conditions.
