A leading infectious disease expert in the US has warned that the coming weeks “are going to be the darkest” of the entire coronavirus pandemic.

Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, says the US is seeing a fresh surge in cases while awaiting a vaccine.

“We do have vaccines and therapeutics coming down the pike, but when you actually look at the time period for that, the next six to 12 weeks are going to be the darkest of the entire pandemic,” he warned Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Never heard of Osterholm, he went on meet the press, and he says, Osterholm stressed that although the US wants to achieve herd immunity, “we don’t want to get there through disease — we want to get there through a vaccination program.” Michael - Full of crap.

Were about ready to turn the corner in a big way. All thanks to Trump's warp speed.

When one steps back & looks at all off this collectively - the “Build Back Better” and “Great Reset” rhetoric, with the talk of vaccinations, digital dollars, and all else that’s happening - it becomes apparent that the powers that be have plans for dark days ahead of us.

This has absolutely nothing to do with a virus. This fake pandemic is only the method being used to impose globalization and a one-world government

You’re cheering this??? Really? Vaccines and therapeutics derived from fetal stem cells and you’re rooting for that?

The virus has a 99.9% cure rate. Why on earth would you accept any of these “treatments”?

Yes, dark days indeed. All democrat voters should stay home on November 3rd.

“The virus has a 99.9% cure rate. “

Many people refuse to hear that. They like being victims and being self-righteous. Bureaucrats and politicians like being heroes and saviors.

How dark? Didn’t we already do “darkest”? Wasn’t that when “the scarf “ said we were going to lose 1.5 million people if we didn’t shut down?

No, the darkest period of the pandemic was when Andrew Cuomo was shoving thousands into nursing homes to die. But thanks for playing.

I’m shocked, just shocked, they would say this the few weeks before the election.

Cases != Sickness, and there’s no corresponding rise in deaths. This second “wave” is nothing more than more efficacious testing, false positives, and the detection of people who had the virus long ago or at least had been infected for some time with no symptoms.

This fear whore should shut the hell up. Yes, “cases” have doubled, but deaths have remained steady at around 80-85% less than when “cases” were at this level during the summer

This was supposed to be part of the democrats big superlative, fantastic, colossal, gigantic extravaganza, October surprise.

The problem is we all saw this coming 3 months ago and 6 months ago.

Every trump hating acolyte will be discovering and reporting the imminent death threat from the “RONA” monster personified in d j trump and his mask resisting army.

That damned Biden criminal family history keeps getting in the way.

Horse has already left the barn. Millions have already early-voted and by Election Day (just two weeks from tomorrow), as many as 40% will have already voted.

If scaredy-cat Dems want to sit at home Election Day in their face masks binge-watching "Orange Is The New Black", that's okay by me.

Trump supporters are going to vote in huge numbers!
