A balanced assessment on a topic of immediate import. Blunt reporting. Straight to the point. Well-sourced with good quoting and commentary. Given the facts of the matter a contextually relevant piece. Brief but informative. A worthwhile read if for no other reason than to keep oneself up to speed with regard to the very fluid, dynamic, and ever present present crisis.

The article doesn't go into much depth, but it does explain who Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams is and his warnings for the coming week. Very balanced in its backseat coverage with dialogue from all sides of the issue.

Title of article is true, surgeon general did say this. Otherwise a very short article that doesn't go into much detail beyond basic fearmongering without any real stats or analysis to back it up.

Less in depth than I would prefer; however, it covered the relevant points, and gave critical context sbout the surgeon general.
