Closing indoor bars and wearing masks will shut down coronavirus outbreak, says top HHS official


In a conference held earlier this week, Assistant Secretary for Health Adm. Brett Giroir told the reporters, "We are all concerned about the increase in cases we are currently seeing throughout the country, and as you know, more than 50% of those cases are occurring in four states: Arizona, Texas, Florida, and California".

"Closing indoor bars and getting almost everyone to wear masks in public to stop the spread of the coronavirus is really as good as shutting it down," he further added. The U.S. is one of the top countries to see rapidly increasing coronavirus cases and deaths in the past few weeks.
