DANA PERINO (HOST): What do you think, from your perspective, you care about public health very much, obviously. What do you think would be reassuring to people?

DR. JANETTE NESHEIWAT (CITYMD MEDICAL DIRECTOR): I think it’s very important for the American public to understand that our president and his administration, President Trump has taken unprecedented steps and measures to contain this virus. We only had 15 cases that originated that came into this country. Most of the other cases that brought the number up to 60 are from the Diamond Princess cruise ship. So, we have it under control, it’s contained, we have the resources to keep it contained. FEMA is being deployed, CDC with their emergency preparedness programs, we have 62 teams throughout the country that are ready to tackle this. So, we shouldn’t panic, we shouldn’t be concerned, but we should be vigilant about hand hygiene, not touching your face, not traveling to other countries, that sort of thing.
