This thing’s not going to stop until it infects 60 to 70 percent of people.
Mike Osterholm, who directs the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP) at the University of Minnesota, told CNN.
The idea that this is going to be done soon defies microbiology.
Osterholm has been writing about the risk of pandemics for 20 years and has advised several presidents. He wrote the report along with Harvard School of Public Health epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch, who is also a top expert on pandemics.
Dr. Kristine Moore, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention epidemiologist who is now medical director for CIDRAP. And historian John Barry, who wrote the 2004 book “The Great Influenza” about the 1918 flu pandemic.
They all said that we most likely to experience this pandemic for 2 more years. Everyone must prepare for possible things more to come not just in the United States but also all over the world.
Let’s hope that experts are finding a way to stop this soon.
