Johns Hopkins Dr. Marty Makary Predicts Covid ‘Will Be Mostly Gone By April’

A Johns Hopkins doctor believes that Covid-19 will be “mostly gone” two months from now. In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal on Friday, Dr. Marty Makary — a surgeon and a professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Bloomberg School of Public Health — argues that there are actually many more than the 28 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the U.S., possibly as much as 6.5 times more than that number. Between that group, and the roughly 15 percent of the country which has already received one dose of the vaccine, Makary argues that much of the nation is already protected from the virus.
