Top public health officials have continued to warn about the recent rise in COVID-19 cases. Along with a recent rise in cases, they also state that they have seen a rise in hospitalizations and deaths, which represent a setback to the progress we have made to end the pandemic.

The article also mentions past headlines by News sources such as “We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April,” by the Wall Street Journal. Or as Dr. Marty Makary, a cancer surgeon at John Hopkins University, who stated, “There is reason to think the country is racing toward an extremely low level of infection.” Both of these claims turned out to incorrect. Also interviewed in the article was Dr. Leana Wen, the former health commissioner of Baltimore, who stated that “We are backsliding,” while also mentioning “when we could be putting the pandemic behind us through vaccination.” Read more about this in the AOL article here.
