“In public squares, we are seeing high vigilance and prevention measures in many jurisdictions,” Redfield told the governor on the call.
“But what we’re seeing now as a growing threat is really getting infected through small household gatherings,” Redfield said. “Especially with Thanksgiving, we think it’s really important to emphasize the vigilance of these ongoing reduction measures in home configuration.”

He hoped that now the daily average of new cases would be around 10,000. Going inside in the winter with thousands of new cases being identified every day provides more ways for people to spread the virus as people begin to spend more time indoors and less time outdoors, where increased ventilation makes it harder to spread the virus.
Respiratory viruses like the flu spread easily even in the colder months, and experts expect them to behave like COVID-19.
“I think we’re going through the whole ordeal,” Fawcett told CNBC on Monday.
“We now have a baseline of infections that change between 40,000 and 50,000 every day. It’s a bad place to be when you’re out in the cold weather of fall and the cold weather of winter. “
