- John Hopkins University expert predicts when the pandemic will end
- The professor and surgeon predicts that it could “disappear for the most part” this month
- The United States could reach 500 thousand deaths from coronavirus
An expert from John Hopkins University predicts when the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 495,000 Americans and infected nearly 28 million will end.
Marty Makary, professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, noted in an article in the Wall Street Journal cited by the New York Post that daily coronavirus infections have dropped 77 percent since January.
When could it disappear?
According to the university expert who has carried out a independent count on the coronavirus pandemic, it could “go away for the most part” in April.
“There are reasons to think that the country is running towards an extremely low level of infection,” he said.
“As more people, most of whom have little or no symptoms, have been infected, fewer Americans remain to be infected. On the current trajectory, I expect COVID-19 to disappear for the most part in April, which will allow Americans to resume normal life, ”said the expert.
Despite the fact that the distribution of 6 million doses of the vaccine against COVID-19 has been delayed this week in the United States due to the storm of snow and cold that plagues various parts of the countryAccording to Efe, for Marty Makary, vaccination and the large number of infected people in the US could help to “end the pandemic.”
“When the chain of transmission of the virus has been broken in several places, it is more difficult for it to spread, and that includes the new strains,” he said.
