Harvard Doctor Urges National Quarantine on Morning Joe

Grabbing the attention of a national audience on Tuesday, a local doctor issued a warning: With every day that passes, the U.S. will tally more COVID-19 cases, clogging hospitals and emergency rooms, until more drastic measures are taken.

Harvard University professor and Director of the Harvard Global Health Institute Ashish Jha appeared on Morning Joe, telling MSNBC reporters that America needs more tests, and a national quarantine.

Sparse availability of test kits has been a major stumbling block in battling the disease in the U.S. and elsewhere.

“My sense is we’re doing about 10,000 tests a day, maybe, across the country,” Jha told reporters.

But that number, he said, should be 150,000 tests a day instead.

Jha’s message comes after new data from China was published in the Science journal on Monday, estimating that “86% of all infections were undocumented,” and “undocumented infections were the infection source for 79% of documented cases.”
