He once said that you are more likely to die after being “hit by an asteroid” than the highly contagious virus. On Saturday, he radically changed his tune.

“My initial comments on the coronavirus equation for influenza were false. They were incorrect, “said Dr. Drew on Saturday, referring to his consistent comments from February and March. “I was in a choir that said that, and we were wrong. And I want to apologize. “

“I wish I had understood correctly, but I was wrong,” he added.

To date, more than one million people worldwide have tested positive for the coronavirus and nearly 68,000 people have died. The United States has more cases of coronavirus than any other country in the world with 323,500 confirmed cases, more than double Spain, which has the second highest number of cases with 130,000.

Dr. Drew said he was right to urge people to follow the advice of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases.

“He was my guiding star in the AIDS epidemic and he should be your North Star now,” said Drew, adding that he was distancing himself from society. “I do what I’m supposed to do. I’m wearing a mask outside now. And these are dividends paid. It gets better – It flattens the curve. And I’m delighted to be part of it. I ‘I’m happy to be a part of it. “
