Opinion: The infectious disease expert who warned us 800,000 Americans would die of Covid-19

Michael Osterholm is director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota and author of The New York Times bestseller, "Deadliest Enemy: Our War Against Killer Germs."
