The incoming Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) director said Sunday that she expects the U.S. will reach 500,000 COVID-19 deaths by mid-February.

Rochelle Walensky, President-elect Joe Biden’s named CDC director, told CBS News’ “Face The Nation” that she “unfortunately” agrees with outgoing CDC Director Robert Redfield that the pandemic is going to get worse.

She noted the U.S. has reached nearly 4,000 deaths a day and almost 400,000 coronavirus deaths total.

“By the middle of February we expect half a million deaths in this country,” she said.

Walensky emphasized that those numbers do not account for the “tens of thousands” of people who recovered from COVID-19 but have an “uncharacterized syndrome.” She also said the U.S. has not yet seen “the ramifications of what happened from the holiday travel,” which the incoming director said will lead to “high rates of hospitalizations and deaths thereafter.”

  1. So whoever said that coronavirus has to do with elite criminals globally were right all along. This is the exact amount on the indictment list that will be eradicated by mid feb.

  2. WE have the power to change this by wearing masks, keeping social distance, avoiding mass spreading events (including crowded indoor minyans and simchas), and cancelling travel. We would rather die than be inconvenienced.

    • Why don’t you stay in your Mommy’s basement with your mask on your head? This way you’ll remain nice and safe and you’ll live forever. What’s not to like?
