White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says the coronavirus pandemic is not going to be controlled. On CNN’s State of the Union, Meadows said areas that can be controlled include the search for a vaccine.
Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation say the U.S. could see more than half a million coronavirus deaths by the end of February. That’s the projection if Americans’ behavior doesn’t change. But researchers say if everyone committed to wearing masks, almost 130-thousand deaths could be avoided.
