A recent report from the New York Times shows that experts believe that the pandemic will end “far sooner” than expected. The report also showed that President Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” is working with incredible efficiency.
According to The Daily Wire:
A new report from The New York Times indicates that experts have “genuine confidence” that the coronavirus pandemic will end “far sooner” than originally expected and that President Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed — the administration’s efforts to facilitate and accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics — has been “working with remarkable efficiency.”
The report, published on Monday, comes with just over three weeks left in the presidential race between Trump and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden.

“Events have moved faster than I thought possible. I have become cautiously optimistic,” New York Times science reporter Donald McNeil Jr. wrote. “Experts are saying, with genuine confidence, that the pandemic in the United States will be over far sooner than they expected, possibly by the middle of next year.”
The report noted that the U.S. was “faring much better than it did during the Spanish influenza,” which cost 675,000 Americans their lives, adding, “the country’s population at the time was 103 million, so that toll is equivalent to 2 million dead today.”
The report highlighted a number of positive development since the U.S. began battling the pandemic, including the average age of those being infected has moved younger, and nursing home patients becoming better protected.
The report also highlighted the military’s readiness to help distribute a vaccine.
