WATCH: MSNBC guest predicts fighting COVID will probably be “a decades-long battle”

Appearing on MSNBC as a guest, Dr. William Haseltine offered an ominous warning to those optimistic the COVID pandemic would soon be behind us.

Haseltine said “I think in the next few weeks that we have our own homegrown strains, and we have to start thinking about adjusting the vaccines.”

“So this is probably going to be much more like a decades-long battle that we have with the flu than a once and done battle that we’ve had with polio,” he added.
