Infectious Disease Expert Predicts Coronavirus Explosion

Infectious disease expert Dr. Michael Osterholm contradicted President Donald Trump’s fanciful claim that the U.S. will soon be in “very good shape” with the coronavirus pandemic. He is predicting “an explosion” in new cases as early as next month.

Appearing on CNN last night, Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, told CNN’s Don Lemon that the U.S. is…

 “…just really beginning to get to the really large part of the problem,” with an average of 45,000 to 50,000 new confirmed cases of the virus per day.”

Dr. Osterholm went on to say…

“When school starts both at the high school level and in college and universities, we think we’re going to see an explosion of cases in September that will far surpass what we saw after Memorial Day.”

“And that this is just going to continue increasing, getting higher and higher, in terms of numbers.”

Dr. Osterholm elaborated in an op-ed he wrote with Neel Kashkari, who is the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, which was published in The New York Times on Friday. The column argued the U.S. needs another lockdown to slow the spread of the virus.

Osterholm and Kashkari wrote in the op-ed...

“We believe the choice is clear,” “We can continue to allow the coronavirus to spread rapidly throughout the country or we can commit to a more restrictive lockdown, state by state, for up to six weeks to crush the spread of the virus to less than one new case per 100,000 people per day.”

“That’s the point at which we will be able to limit the increase in new cases through aggressive public health measures, just as other countries have done. But we’re a long way from there right now,” Osterholm and Kashkari acknowledged. “The imperative for this is clear because, as a nation, what we have done so far hasn’t worked.”

Meanwhile, as of 1:30 PM, Tuesday, 5.27 million people have been infected with the coronavirus in the United States, while more than 166,800 people have died.
