More than 90 Percent of Americans Still Prone to Coronavirus, Expert Says

The overwhelming majority of Americans are still vulnerable to catching the coronavirus, a medical expert said Friday.

“The fundamental biology of this disease hasn’t changed,” Dr. Ali Khan, dean of the College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said Friday on CNN’s “New Day.” “Over 90 percent are still susceptible. This is still a significant disease and 30 percent of Americans are at high risk.”

Khan said recent spikes in cases seen in states such as Florida and Texas will continue if reopenings aren’t handled more carefully.

“We’re in the midst of the greatest public health failure in American history, and if we’re going to continue to open up and not open up safely, we’re going to continue to see increased cases,” he said.
