EAST TEXAS (KLTV/KTRE) - ABC’s Chief Medical Correspondent, Dr. Jennifer Ashton joined East Texas Now and discussed the progress and probability of ending COVID-19.

Ashton said there is still a lot of work to be done with “people dying from this virus every single day.”

She said restrictions may be over temporarily, but we need to keep in mind just how quickly an infectious disease can take over. Due to the lack of vaccines in other countries, there is potential for new variants.
