More than 90% of Americans are still susceptible to Covid-19, said Dr. Ali Khan, dean of the College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
"The fundamental biology of this disease hasn't changed," Khan said Friday during an interview on CNN’s New Day. "Over 90% of Americans are still susceptible. This is still a significant disease, and 30% of Americans are at high risk."
When asked about the uptick in new coronavirus cases in states like Florida and Texas, Khan said the US will continue to see increases if states don't open safely.
"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," Khan told CNN.
