Covid-19 Story Tip: Eili Klein, Ph.D.: We Could Be Looking at a Fairly Normal Fall


Coronavirus vaccines are rolling out across the country, so, what does that mean for the outlook of the pandemic?

Eili Klein, Ph.D., associate professor of emergency medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who has been working on modeling the pandemic, explains what the vaccine means for all of us.

“For the first time, we’re not facing an oncoming train,” says Klein, “but that does not change the epidemiology of what we’re facing in the next few months.” He expects that we will be facing a tough winter and will need to continue physical distancing and wearing masks until many more Americans are vaccinated over the summer months.
