- In a new coronavirus update White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci shared, he reiterated two things that have to happen in order for the coronavirus pandemic to end.
- Dr. Fauci's two solutions to the pandemic are no big secret -- widespread vaccination and universal adherence to public health measures like face masks are the only things that he says will end the pandemic.
- Also Thursday, Dr. Fauci delivered a message to the World Health Organization emphasizing the US desire to remain a WHO partner under President Biden.
The day after President Biden was inaugurated and his new White House press secretary Jen Psaki promised that the administration would bring back "truth and transparency" in its briefings with the press, Biden himself shared a coronavirus update that put that promise into action. Whereas the Trump administration, for example, had disassembled, de-emphasized bad news, and tried to focus only on positive things before largely ignoring COVID news altogether, Biden told reporters on Thursday that the US is likely to pass another grim milestone in February -- more than 500,000 lives lost as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Continuing his remarks with reporters on Thursday, Biden excoriated the COVID vaccine rollout that began under the Trump administration as "a dismal failure so far" and warned that “things are going to continue to get worse before they get better.” Continued Biden: “Our plan is to restore public trust. We will make sure that … scientists and public health experts will speak directly to you. That’s why you’re going to be hearing a lot from Dr. Fauci again, not the President -- from the real, genuine experts and scientists." So, speaking from that, how about the latest from Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden's chief medical advisor?
