One expert believes that by Thanksgiving, almost 90% of the U.S. population will have some sort of immunity against COVID-19, according to the Deseret News.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, told CNBC believes that Delta infecting so many unvaccinated people plus people already being vaccinated, will create herd immunity.
He predicted early on that the Delta Variant would hit different regions at different times, and take off in the Northeast around Labor Day.
In an interview with CNN he said he believed there’s a chance that this may be the last major wave.
