A Johns Hopkins professor and surgeon says that the coronavirus pandemic could be “mostly gone” by April. But that’s not what Deep State troll Dr. Anthony Fauci thinks. Who’s right?
Doctors believe COVID pandemic is on its way out
Marty Makary, who teaches at the university’s School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health, said in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal on Friday that daily infections have declined by 77 percent since January.
“There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection,” Makary wrote. “As more people have been infected, most of whom have mild or no symptoms, there are fewer Americans left to be infected. At the current trajectory, I expect COVID will be mostly gone by April, allowing Americans to resume normal life.”
Vaccinations and the high number of people who have already been infected in the US — more than 28 million — could contribute to herd immunity in the spring, Makary said.
The White House and other experts have not been as optimistic, with some saying herd immunity may not be reached until much later in the year. Herd immunity occurs when enough people become immune to a virus, ending its spread. Makary also said it would protect against new strains of the coronavirus from spreading.
“When the chain of virus transmission has been broken in multiple places, it’s harder for it to spread — and that includes the new strains,” he said.
🤦♂️ Two years to flatten the curve now? I’m sorry but one of Trump’s biggest mistakes was giving this joker a platform to steer policy instead of firing him on the spot. https://t.co/AV7L6KqCj7

China Virus continues into 2021
Dr Fauci has other ideas. He told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday that it is “possible” Americans may still need to wear face masks in 2022, even as the country could approach a certain “degree of normality.”
While Fauci noted he can’t predict when the U.S. could return to the way it operated during pre-pandemic life, he believes that, by the end of the year, the United States could have “a significant degree of normality beyond what the terrible burden that all of us have been through over the last year.”
“As we get into the fall and the winter, by the end of the year, I agree with President Biden completely, that we will be approaching a degree of normality,” Fauci said. “It may or may not be precisely the way it was in November of 2019 but it’ll be much much better than we’re doing right now.”
15 months to flatten the middle class.
