Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, delivered a stark warning about Covid19 on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday.

According to Dr. Osterholm, ‘the next six to 12 weeks are going to be the darkest of the pandemic’.

Osterholm said that Friday’s 70,000 cases in the U.S. are the most since the number peaked in July and may clearly indicate that it’s just the beginning of a very difficult stretch.

“That number, we’re going to blow right through that,” he told NBC’s Chuck Todd. “And between now and the holidays, we will see numbers much, much larger than even the 67,000 to 75,000 cases.”

Osterholm told news anchor Chuck Todd that the country had a ‘major problem in messaging.’ And a lack of leadership, which has remained a criticism of President Trump. He pushed back against the idea of herd immunity, which was reportedly proposed by White House medical adviser Scott Atlas.

Michael T. Osterholm is an epidemiologist, regents professor, and director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota.
