University of Minnesota health expert Dr. Michael Osterholm says he’s worried about another wave of COVID-19 infections:
“The surge that is likely to occur with this new variant from England is going to happen in the next 6 to 14 weeks. And if we see that happen we are going to see something like we haven’t seen yet in this country.”
Osterholm is urging a course correction in the coronavirus vaccine distribution strategy:
“We need to get as many one-doses and as many people over 65 as we possibly can.”
To date, 447,610 Minnesotans have received one dose of the COVID vaccination and 116,928 have received both doses.
