The US could be in the “eye of the hurricane,” according to Michael Osterholm, a top disease expert.
Though vaccinations are up, the country has hit a new plateau of 600,000 new cases daily. This comes as some States have loosened restrictions and Spring break celebrations loom as super spreader events. Texas, Mississippi, Iowa, Montana, and North Dakota all rescinded mask mandates last week.
But Osterholm said on ‘Meet The Press’ that we should be concerned about the new highly contagious variants that have “wreaked havoc” on Europe.
Experts including Dr. Fauci have sounded the warning bells but some States aren’t listening.
