Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said a majority of Americans remain susceptible to Covid-19.
Speaking to the Senate Health Committee on Wednesday, Redfield said, “CDC is in the process of a very large, sequential study across the entire United States, measuring serology.”
“The preliminary results on the first round show that a majority of our nation – more than 90% of the population – remains susceptible,” he said.
“It varies in different geographic parts from states,” he said. “We’ll have that finalized and probably published in the next week or so.”
“But it does show that a majority of Americans are still susceptible to this virus,” Redfield said.
