White House Chief of Staff: We do not intend to control the pandemic
In an interview with CNN on the 25th, Mark Meadows said: “We will focus on obtaining vaccines, finding effective treatments and obtaining other mitigation methods. We do not intend to control the pandemic.”
When the reporter asked why the pandemic was not controlled, Meadows responded: “Because Coronavirus Pandemic is contagious, just like the flu.”
CNN pointed out that the White House chief of staff said this at a time when the number of Covid-19 cases in the
United States was increasing.
The government continues to ignore suggestions from health experts to wear masks, maintain social distancing, and avoid large gatherings. The reality is that five of the advisers to
Vice President Pence have tested positive for the virus, and the White House will also face the possibility of a
second outbreak of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

United States have set a new high in the number of new cases per day.

In an interview with the media on the 23rd, American infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci pointed out that Trump has not participated in the White House
Coronavirus Pandemic Response Working Group meetings for several months, and the frequency of meetings has been greatly reduced.
Fauci said that under the leadership of Vice President Pence, the White House Covid-19 Response Working Group met every day during the
first few months of the pandemic, but it has now been reduced to once a week. Because the White House is committed to economic priority and advocates for economic reopening.
