Coronavirus is ‘going to get worse before it gets better,’ says former FDA head


Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the FDA, tells TODAY that the current surge in coronavirus cases “is really an epidemic; we don’t have control of it,” and adds that “unfortunately, I think deaths are going to rise again.” He urges people to wear masks and avoid large indoor gatherings over Fourth of July weekend: “We don’t want a repeat of what happened on Memorial Day.” But he anticipates a vaccine may be available as soon as early 2021.
