U.S. Will Have Third Influx of Coronavirus

It will likely be ‘more pervasive,’ Dr. Scott Gottlieb says

The U.S. has not yet had a “true second wave” of the coronavirus and the country could see a resurgence of the virus in the fall and winter, former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Friday. 

“I think most peoples’ perception is we had one epidemic in New York, in the New York region, we came down the epidemic curve, we had another epidemic in the Sun Belt, so that really looks like and feels like a second wave,” Gottlieb said on Squawk Box. “I do think that we’re going to have a third act of this virus in the fall and the winter, and it’s likely to be more pervasive spread in a broader part of the country.”

He added that the virus is likely to spread to rural parts of the U.S., some of which have been “largely unaffected to date.”
