From a change management viewpoint, what would you change about the communication? Having optional daily briefings (you can tune in or not), executive summary up front, including key people/experts up to “ceo”, having experts provide data, taking questions for a long time etc. Not interested in political discussion/opinions about the topic, rather genuinely curious what ocm colleagues would change about the communication construct to make it better for Americans to be up to date.

Yeah, no scientists, tells the facts of how many people are dying, urges people to stay home, and then thanks medical professionals. Let’s not make it more than it is, a dog and pony show because people can’t think for themselves. Stay home, wear masks, don’t go outside even to exercise, and we will be done with this in 2 weeks.

Ha! To be fair, the daily briefings are the norm in situations like this, so we're likely stuck with them for quite a while longer.

He’s using them as his rallies.
