Dr. Gregory Poland: Covid Is Now The 2nd Leading Cause Of Death In The U.S.

Dr. Gregory Poland of the Mayo Clinic said that the coronavirus is now the second leading cause of death in the United States.

"We've now hit in the U.S. over 200,000 deaths. Covid has become the second leading cause of death in the U.S. It's like having the same number of deaths that occurred on 9/11 everyday for 66 straight deaths and it's also more than five Vietnams. This calls for a coordinated response to not only get across information but so that people trust it," said Dr. Poland while on the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel In The Morning" show.

Dr. Poland also told us about the Johnson and Johnson vaccine trial.

"Starting today Johnson and Johnson is starting a 60,000 person phase 3 trial (and) it looks like their vaccine will only take one dose," said Dr. Poland.
