Top health official warns coronavirus spread appears inevitable in US | TheHill

A top U.S. health official said Tuesday the spread of coronavirus in the country appears to be inevitable, while warning that the disruptions could be “severe.”

Nancy Messonnier, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters the agency expects to see more cases in the U.S.

“As more and more countries experience community spread, successful containment at our borders becomes harder and harder,” Messonnier said.
