Overseas Network, November 16th. Since the US election day, the White House has not yet started negotiations with the Biden transition team. On the 15th local time, Fauci, a top American infectious disease expert, claimed that the Trump administration should start cooperating with Biden’s transition team in the fight against the epidemic.
Based on CNBC and CNN news in the United States, “It’s like passing the baton in a game.” Fauci described the Trump administration in an interview with CNN, “You don’t want to stop and pass the baton to others. You actually just want to Keep running.”
Fauci has served six US presidents during his 36 years of his career. In his view, the transition period is crucial. Working with the Biden and Harris teams will make the transition smoother.
Fauci told CNN that Trump has not attended the meeting of the White House Covid-19 Working Group for several months. At the same time, the Biden and Harris camps have released a step-by-step plan for the epidemic and announced the establishment of a 13-member Coronavirus pandemic working group.
The current situation of the epidemic has to worry the US media that the number of Coronavirus cases is increasing rapidly, and the spread of the virus usually peaks in winter. CNBC’s data analysis of Johns Hopkins showed that the number of new cases reported in a single day on the 14th (Saturday) local time in the United States increased by 33% from the Saturday of the previous week.
