Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House response coordinator for the coronavirus task force, sent a hard-hitting warning about social distancing by sharing a deeply personal story.
"She never forgot that she was the child who was in school who innocently brought that flu home shortly after her mother delivered," Birx said.
“No American wants to spread coronavirus,” Pence said.
On Tuesday, Birx called on anyone who had recently left the New York City metropolitan area to self-quarantine for 14 days.
Birx said that even in New York City the number of new cases had remained “constant” over the last three days.
