One doctor who made an appearance on CNBC recently stated the opinion that this version of Covid-19, the Delta version, might in fact be the last wave of Covid Americans might have to endure. According to Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the virus might very well become another flu variant that no longer merits such extraordinary measures to guard against.
However, he did note that right now schools in particular should be seeking to take aggressive mitigation action to assure that this does indeed end up being the result of the latest coronavirus wave.
- Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Monday the current surge in Covid infections caused by the more contagious delta variant may be the last wave of the virus in the U.S.
- “I don’t think Covid is going to be epidemic all through the fall and the winter … assuming we don’t have a variant emerge that pierces the immunity offered by prior infection or vaccination,” Gottlieb said on “Squawk Box.”
- He warned that schools may need to begin the year with heavier mitigation measures in place.
