Former FDA Director Dr. Scott Gottlieb predicted Monday that the U.S. will be past the coronavirus pandemic within the next three weeks.

Gottlieb argued that the outbreak of the delta COVID-19 variant in the U.S. is likely to follow the same trend as it did in the U.K., where it plateaued after roughly three weeks.
