Covid-19: Expert projects extention till 2021
A US medical expert has projected that the world might battle coronavirus till at least the end of next year.
The expert, Dr Ezekiel J. Emmanuel, who made the projection on Friday April 10, 2020, stated that his reason was due to the absence of a cure for coronavirus.
He made the statement after president trump announced that the coronavirus outbreak has reached a peak and that the US economy was going to do very well.
Dr Emmanuel, an oncologist at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School and one of the architects of Obamacare said, “Eating at a restaurant, attending a concert or watching a live sporting event may not be feasible till the end of next year.”
“What I’m really frustrated by is sort of the White House approach of we got to get back to normal, Easter; we got to have football season in September; all this that isn’t happening.
“You are not going to be opening up the economy by the end of April. We have to prepare the country. This is an 18-month process. We need structural changes, not band aids of a few weeks. If you are a small business trying to plan for the 18 months, eight weeks just aren’t going to do it,” he added
“I don’t think we are going to get a vaccine before next year and I would say out to the public or general immunity not until July, August, September timeframe in 2021,” he concluded.
