President-elect Joe Biden is expected to ask Surgeon General Jerome Adams to resign after he is sworn in later today in what is seen as further indication of the incoming administration’s decision to break away from the Trump administration’s Covid-19 response.
Leadership is about setting the right example. With that thought in mind, former president’s Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama all plan on getting a COVID vaccine while being filmed.
The reason is obvious. It is exciting that there are multiple strains of the vaccine available, they will not hit their objective if enough people don’t take advantage of it.
The Surgeon General has warned that Coronavirus doesn’t discriminate based on a person’s political beliefs as Donald Trump continues to downplay the disease at his rallies.
Jerome Adams mentioned the President’s rallies during an appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday but declined to criticize them. Instead, he explained that politics didn’t change how the virus behaves toward people.
In an interview with CBS This Morning, Surgeon General Jerome Adams said the transmission rate of the novel coronavirus must be lowered before schools can consider reopening.
“The biggest determinant of whether or not we can go back to school actually has little to do with the actual schools,” Adams said. “It is your background transmission rate.” Adams acknowledged that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has released recommendations for reopening schools safely, but cautioned that “the most important thing is what we do outside of schools before we reopen to lower the transmission rate.”
The U.S. Surgeon General has made the extraordinary claim that federal troops would be needed if a federal mask mandate were introduced. He made the claim while urging people to wear masks.
Jerome Adams spoke to Fox News on Monday and literally begged Americans to wear face coverings. But he then said he wasn’t in favor of a nationwide mandate because of the difficulties of enforcement.
The Surgeon General has said African Americans are at a greater risk for Covid-19. Jerome Adams warned that everyone needed to help slow the spread of the disease.
Former CNN anchor, current executive producer, and talk show host Soledad O’Brien criticized comments from U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Sunday, resulting in a back-and-forth between the two in which O’Brien appeared to suggest Adams was not a credible voice during the coronavirus crisis.
