Video Script:: 

it's really hard to feel like you're saving the world when you're watching Netflix from your couch how can soccer or book club be so dangerous why ask so much of people for just a few hundred cases because it's the only way to save those lives looking back to the last time was the beginning of the 1918 pandemic two cities in America made different choices about how to proceed st. Louis shut itself down and sheltered in place but Philadelphia went ahead with a huge parade to celebrate those going off to war a week later Philadelphia hospitals were overrun and thousands were dead many more than in st. Louis this is a cautionary tale for our time for many of us it may not be much more than the flu and so it can be very confusing as to why schools are closed restaurants are shuttered and now the virus is taking what's left of our precious liberty but the real problem is not the 80 percent who will get over this in a week it's the 20 percent of patients the older those that are immunocompromised those that have who are going to need a bit more support some oxygen or maybe a ventilator life support all we have to slow the spread is distance social distance we can't take care of everyone at once despite doing our best to prepare for a respiratory virus pandemic we now find ourselves facing a brand new virus with too little information not enough personal protective equipment changing protocols every single day and no second chances this virus is unforgiving and it tricks you into believing that it's nothing more than a little influenza without taking drastic measures the healthy and optimistic among us will doom the vulnerable this isn't the life any of us expected and certainly there are others who will make much greater sacrifices it will last longer than any of us wanted to but this isn't going to be forever all of us in the field of infectious diseases and the public health community are united in our efforts and agree with this course of action and we all acknowledge that this is the only way forward I want to send my sincere gratitude and support to all of the healthcare workers in Illinois and around the world we could not have made it this far and we will not get much further and so I also express my gratitude to everyone working in public health we have to fight this fire before it grows too high these extreme restrictions may seem in the end a little anticlimactic but if we do this right nothing happens a successful shelter in place means that you're going to feel like it was all for nothing because nothing means that nothing happened to your family even starting now we can't stop the cases from coming fast and furious but with a real commitment to sheltering in place and a whole lot of patience I know we'll get through this together and find a way back to the life that we used to live Public Health and Hospitals have been working hard for a long time and now it's your turn to do your part a huge sacrifice to make but a sacrifice that can make thousands of differences maybe even a difference in your family too so please don't give up [Music] you [Music]

  • Janet Added I agree with Michelle
  • Michelle Added This is such a great message! My only complaint is that the people in the video are standing too close to each other and not providing the best example of social distancing.
