Scott Gottlieb, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, says he’s optimistic that the pandemic will fade this fall as more people become vaccinated.
“If you look at what’s happening in the south, it seems to be starting to peak in some of the outbreak states, the RT, the rate of transfer, is still above one, meaning you still have an expanding epidemic, but it’s falling,” Gottlieb said.
Gottlieb, speaking at the Economic Club of New York, said he expects the rate of infection will go down in the coming weeks and schools will be able to drop mask requirements.
“We might be at the point in time where we’re coming down with the risk is substantially reduced at that point,” he added.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
