Speaking during a webinar with the Buck Institute on Tuesday, Redfield said there is still “obvious transmission” occurring throughout the nation
Dr Robert Redfield, the head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said the nation is in a much better place than it was in the spring, because it has a much lower mortality rate, but said "we're not out of the woods for this."
Speaking during a webinar with the Buck Institute on Tuesday, Redfield said there is still "obvious transmission" occurring throughout the nation right now, reports the CNN.
"Now we're seeing, obviously significant infection, but the age of infection has dropped by a decade and a half, if we look at it, and clearly the relationship between the number of cases diagnosed, and actually having significant morbidity mortality has shifted substantially," he said.
"While we've made a lot of progress, we still have a ways to go in terms of getting this under control," the CDC director said.
