It’s likely too late to stop this upcoming surge, warned Michael Osterholm.
Celebrity epidemiologist Osterholm was completely wrong. In late January he was on national television saying the nation was in the “eye of the hurricane” and that over the next 6-14 weeks, the U.S. would see a surge worse than anything we had seen so far.
Here is what happened since January, at +13 weeks into his 14 week forecast. This chart is from a few days ago – the curve has continued going down since then. Osterholm was not a little wrong – he was idiotically wrong.
