Data Suggests ’We Don’t Have To Wait 14 Days’ To Quarantine & 10 Days May Suffice | Andrea Mitchell 1


Admiral Brett Giroir joins Andrea Mitchell to discuss the possible new CDC quarantine guidelines and the presidential transition. Adm. Giroir says of the new guidelines that "the accumulating data suggests that we don't have to wait 14 days," and that 10 days of quarantine may suffice, adding that the CDC is "not going to advise anything that isn’t safe.” He also tells Andrea, "I have personally been contacted by several members of the public health team on the new administration, informally. We have not had formal transitions." Aired on 11/25/2020.

  1. The end is still 2-3 years away for a lot of people.

      @Pete Pav Sure, that doesn’t surprise me. But no other country has the resources that America has, so we will be vaccinated soon, and now Trump is out of office, so America can soar like the the Eagle it is: A country of immigrants, the bravest people on the planet.

      @Pete Pav Brisbane Australia? Sorry I can’t take Australians seriously. It’s the accent, mate.

      Australia died when the crocodile hunter died.

    • @José de Jesus Really no other country? How is it you couldn’t even control Covid then? If you used the Australian model, your death toll would have been less than 15,000 & case count less than 400,000 instead of 265,000+ deaths & 13 million cases. Right, got it. Your arrogance is unbelievable.

    • @José de Jesus No accent here, sunshine, btw, Australia’s per capita deaths from Covid is 35/ million, the US is 808/million. Who’s dying now?

      @Pete Pav an Australian without an accent is like a hamburger with NO TOPPINGS.

      Australians are the most sun burnt white people for a reason, and the aboriginals are dark brown for the same reason, because the sun is TOO INTENSE in Australia. I suspect that has something to do with your low Covid numbers.

      Get an Australian accent, or lose your Australian citizenship.

    Great advice…
    Wear a mask trumpers!

  3. For Pete’s sake, can we keep it together for a few more months until the vaccine rolls out?

    COME ON!!!!!!

    • Well in my country it’s been 10 days since the summer.

    • don’t go, for the sake of you loved ones

    • @DJ EvD
      The trump virus is rampant, out of control, over 260,000 dead as of today! Almost 2000 new cases a day, I think any amount of prevention is worth a pound of cure,!
      14 days is a small concession to save lives! Until this horrible virus is under control, hopefully eradicated, we are at it’s mercy, unfortunately!
      Stay safe everyone, good wishes, good thoughts!

  5. Why did they not close the airports. This is a national emergency.

  6. There will be a surge in the virus because people are traveling for the Holidays.This is unacceptable I follow all CDC guidelines.I have come to realize there is some selfish people who have no regard for our lives.stay safe.🙏😷✌

    • @byebyebaby tRump You are a good and respectful person.Thank you.Happy Thanksgiving stay safe.😷✌

    • @Paula Gandolfo You are correct sadly we can’t convince the idiots what their behavior is causing more cases and deaths.Happy Thanksgiving stay safe.😷✌

    • Xavier Fletcher | November 25, 2020 at 4:39 PM | Reply

      @Penny Sutch Very well put and HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU TOO.

    • @byebyebaby tRump – That sounds fabulous, good for you! If you do become ill while you’re there, what will you do?

    • I’m having swordfish and lobster tail with my cat. His favorite. 😺
      I am bringing a dish of the same to my girlfriend who has to work until 10PM. ❤

  7. Why would anyone believe a person associated with Donald? Of course they want to shorten our quarantine so we can get out and spend spend spend.

    • @RuffianBasil Because the only places people get stuff from in that case are the big corporations. Ordering from Amazon, food from fast food chains. The only places that have been allowed to stay open during lockdowns are the big chains like Walmart. I bet Corona has increased Amazon’s business.

      Not to Mention work work work for the corporate big wigs who haven’t left their house the whole pandemic. The incubation can be up to 21 days. If anything it should go up. Making it shorter because people aren’t following 14 means you should enforce quarantines fold to morons 🙄

    • SoulHarvester Gaming | November 25, 2020 at 5:21 PM | Reply

      @Not Sure this is true, I can’t argue with what you are saying but what I will say is that prolonged virus spread is not the answer either. Lock downs hurt small businesses more than large yes, but not doing anything will officially destroy them. The answer is financial assistance for thoughs that have to close for awhile and our government to care about something other than corporations. 80% of ppp loans went to thoughs corporations too instead of helping the ones that needed it. But you are worried about killing people to keep them open instead of pressuring the government to do the right thing and help these businesses.

    • oh

    • he is trying to distance himself from trumpo and has been for months. KEEP UP

    More BS from the WH, the incubation period is up to 14 days.

    • 21 days in some cases not many but still concerning. Good to hear the Science getting the respect it deserves now the influence from above is less.

    • SoulHarvester Gaming | November 25, 2020 at 5:12 PM | Reply

      @gavin willn this was my comment lol it may not be often but the fact that it can happens confirms that 14 days has never been long enough. Not that because the majority is 6 days we should make it less… are we giving advice to stop this or just to make it look like we are. Oh wait I already know the answer to that

    • Koh

  9. Dude, the vaccine is GREAT! But it doesn’t END the pandemic

  10. If you know someone who lost a love one due to the virus this year, they sure could use a call of compassion from you during the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

    Why ask americans to make better decisions? Y’all have proven incapable.

  12. *_”the end of the pandemic is in sight”_* Sure. Admiral Giroir says a lot of things that don’t pan out. He was saying in April that everyone who needs a test can get a test. Completely false anecdotally and corroborated by on the job physicians. I don’t trust this gent.

  13. “10 Days May Suffice” May? Might? Maybe? You don’t know. Why spew this? Wait the 14days or longer.

    • Yeah, everyone should thumb down this! And, like waiting 4 more days to be more sure is a bad thing v. possibly spreading the virus. Obviously, too many idiots will remain idiots.

    • Oh, and what does Trump do? Finally, fight the virus? NO! He stops playing golf long enough to tweet: “THE ELECTION WAS RIGGED! I WON THE ELECTION!” All he is going to do for the next two months is pump more taxpayer money into his golf resorts.

    • Voh

  14. Too many Americans only care about themselves, either that or are just plain ignorant.

  15. “The vaccine is just around the corner.” Isn’t that what Trump said months ago? How many more people have to die before these idiots get their acts together?

      We have vaccines coming online, the UK one is the most promising because it’s relatively cheap(£3 per dose), easy to store and easy to administer and as it’s delivery system is based on a genetically modified virus(don’t be alarmed we learned to inoculate against small pox by using the cow pox virus) it is massively scalable, we just grow more vaccine. We will have this under control within a year and the World will recover including the economy.

    • Just 3 weeks ago he said it had turned the corner,. lied all year about it & look at the consequences of his criminal neglect.

    • oh

  16. This Trumper guy will be gone January 20th don’t listen to him he doesn’t know nothing

  17. People aren’t going to listen, someone told me today they’re going to three different houses for Thanksgiving 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

  18. This guy is just muddying the water. Stick with 14 days.

  19. Reporter interviewing Admiral “Spineless” Giroir: “Is there anything you can do to pressure the GSA to abide by the law, so it will authorize the transition process in order to save thousands of American lives and not damage national security?”
    Admiral “Spineless” Giroir: “Let’s talk about something else!”

  20. This man has no credibility. He took this job knowing he’d be working for a criminal. Shame on you !!!
