December 7th According to a report by the U.S. Political News Network (Politico) on the 6th local time, President-elect Biden will appoint Rochelle Valensky as the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Valensky will become another important female member of Biden’s team.
It is reported that Valensky previously served as the director of Massachusetts Central Hospital, in charge of infectious diseases, and she was also a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Valensky will succeed Robert Redfield, who served as director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in March 2018. It is reported that Valensky will assist the Biden administration in curbing the coronavirus epidemic after taking office.
According to reports, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention called on people to wear masks when going out for the first time on the 4th. The opinion is consistent with Biden’s previous proposal to implement a nationwide “mask order”, but many Republican governors have rejected Biden’s request.
