Vaccine Expert Has A Grim Prediction Of What Coronavirus Will Do 'For Years And Years'

Source: Huffpost

Hotez, who has long rejected and contested the anti-vaccine movement, noted how Russian intelligence officers have reportedly been part of a disinformation campaign to sow doubt about vaccines in development for the virus.

Anti-science campaigners were fueling further deaths with their stances against social distancing and the wearing of face masks to mitigate its spread, Hotez argued.

He warned the White House will step up its attacks on scientists, as it did with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who has countered the government’s narrative on the crisis.

2. We've allowed a Russian asset in the Whitehouse to allow the Russians to

continue to sow disinformation and divide the American people.

There is so much criminality in the current administration it is hard to even begin to fight.

I feel like we are fighting a 1000000 headed hydra and no matter what head you go after it just keeps coming back.

9. It is disgusting to report:

My Russian Friend says the people in Russia are watching this unfold with great interest. They are laughing at how easily Putin has "played" Trump and the RepubliCONs and how Putin is bringing down the entire U.S. and Democracy without firing a single missile or rocket............

The RepubliCONs and Putin are about to install their "Corporate Fascist Tyranny"....................

10. That is quite sad to hear.

Of course we can still win, let's hope we do.

3. This was an utter failure of leadership at every level.

Though the majority of it lies sorely on Trump and his minions. They are largely responsible for this, and they don't care.

6. Their goal is to cull the herd/population killing off as many people as they can ... the disabled,

old, people of color, the poor and anyone else. It is the perfect tool for them as profitability hatchets, much like corporate raiders. And, they have a leader who clearly does not give a fuck about anyone.

8. For something to be a failure, the person failing must have been trying to do something and failed.

I don't see that there has been the slightest attempt to lead in anything we have been through since January 2017. So I can't call it a failure of leadership myself.

5. His concluding remark

“Sometimes we talk about it as though it’s the past and the worst is over. The worst is yet to come,” Hotez concluded. “We’re going to double the number of deaths over the next few months and now we know it’s not just deaths. We’re seeing long-term injury to the lungs, to the vascular system, to the heart, neurologic deficits, cognitive deficits. This will plague the country for years and years, even after vaccines are out and we get people vaccinated.”

7. To me he sounds like a political pundit who knows something about vaccines.
