VIDEO: As COVID-19 cases spike, an update from Health Officer Dr. Jeff Duchin

In recent days, King County has seen the highest COVID-19 case counts we’ve experienced to date. In light of these increases, we’re sharing Dr. Jeff Duchin’s November 6th, 2020, press briefing where he discusses the rising numbers and what we need to do to turn around this outbreak. View the update below.

We can choose our path forward or we can let the virus choose it for us. Ignoring COVID-19 prevention is a recipe for unnecessary suffering… We need to do things safer, smaller, and smarter. We need to come together to support one another and protect each other in this difficult time. We still have time to change course, but we must act now.

Dr. Jeff DUCHIN, Health OFFICER for Public Health – Seattle & King County
