Health Expert: Turkey Day is ‘Mother of All Superspreaders’

The doom and gloom of coronavirus isn’t going away for Turkey Day.

The story of coronavirus in America could be very well adapted into a sappy rom-com about roommates celebrating all the different holidays we’ve missed out on in a tiny flat in some faraway city, and it would begin with a “two week lockdown” right around Saint Patrick’s Day.

That two-week lockdown would turn into a seven-month trip, at least, as it’s now Thanksgiving and our nation continues to toil away at home, waiting for whatever reprieve is allegedly arriving.

Now, 36 weeks into our “two week lockdown”, health experts are warning that Thanksgiving could be the super-spreader event to end all super-spreader events.

The United States recorded more than 171,000 new cases, Johns Hopkins University reported. A record-breaking number of patients are hospitalized at more than 88,000, the highest number of Covid-19 hospitalizations since the pandemic began and the 15th straight day of record admissions, according to the Covid Tracking Project.

Despite these skyrocketing statistics, millions of Americans are traveling for Thanksgiving to spend the holiday with family and friends. They’re packing into airports and boarding planes, ignoring guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advising against traveling this year.

The US could see an explosion of Covid-19 infections in the weeks following Thanksgiving, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, a former White House medical team adviser, told CNN Tuesday.

“It’s potentially the mother of all superspreader events.”

Experts added that, while taking a COVID-19 test before traveling on Thursday could help to weed out some of those with the virus, the tests aren’t a surefire way to prove that it’s safe.
