U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says to expect new coronavirus outbreaks as crowds gather to protest the death of George Floyd.
Demonstrations in cities and towns across the nation have brought thousands of people together in close proximity.
Many demonstrators have worn face coverings. However, the crowded protests have made social distancing nearly impossible in many cases.
Adams also noted that the pandemic has disproportionally affected people of color.
He is just the latest government leader to express concern.
