Ex-Obama Health Advisor Says Covid Is Far From Dying Out in U.S., So Masks Remain Necessary
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel told CNBC on Friday he believes it's important for people to keep wearing face coverings, especially in schools, until a larger percentage of the U.S. population has received a Covid vaccine.
In an interview on "Squawk Box," the former Obama administration health advisor said he wasn't advocating for "permanent masks" in society. Rather, Emanuel said he remains concerned about those who aren't eligible yet to get a vaccine: children under the age of 12.
