Research
Coronavirus and COVID-19
In mid-March, Jha called for a two-week national quarantine across the United States to reduce the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Jha's argument is that it takes up to two weeks for those who are already infected with the novel coronavirus to begin showing symptoms; given the lack of COVID-19 testing in the U.S., a two-week quarantine would help public health better assess how widespread the disease is to better inform decision-making. He has also advocated for the need to vastly strengthen healthcare infrastructure and increase the manufacturing of personal protective equipment to keep healthcare workers safe.
