We’re all sick of bad COVID news. How many times you’ve read during this pandemic about lockdowns, restrictions, outbreaks, new infection waves, new strains, and deaths? Probably as often as all of us. But finally, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, who is a former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), brings great news regarding the development of the COVID spread after the end of the Delta strain surge in the US. His claim was awaited by pretty much everybody.

COVID-19 will become endemic in the US

Dr. Scott Gottlieb says to CNBC.com that after the recent surge in COVID Delta cases will calm down, the US will only be dealing with an endemic virus. Late September will represent the peak of the Delta variant surge in the country.

While speaking for “Squawk Box” of CNBC, Dr. Scott Gottlieb said:

We’re transitioning from this being a pandemic to being more of an endemic virus, at least here in the United States and probably other Western markets.

The former FDA commissioner between 2017 and 2019 under the Trump administration also declared as quoted by CNBC.com:

It’s not a binary point in time, but I think after we get through this delta wave, this is going to become more of an endemic illness where you just see sort of a persistent infection through the winter … but not at the levels that we’re experiencing certainly right now, and it’s not necessarily dependent upon the booster shots.

As for now, if we take a look at data revealed by worldometers.info, we find out that the COVID pandemic is pretty rampant in the US. For yesterday, August 13, the country reported over 155,000 COVID infections.
