President-Elect Biden Asks Fauci to Become Chief Medical Adviser
President-Elect Biden Asks Fauci to Become Chief Medical Adviser

President-elect Joe Biden spoke Thursday with infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci and asked him to serve as a top COVID-19 adviser.

“I asked him to stay in the exact same role he’s had for the past several presidents, and I asked him to be a chief medical adviser for me as well, and be part of the COVID team,” Biden said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Fauci is the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, which he has led since 1984.

Biden teased that when he takes office on Jan. 20 he will be asking the public to wear masks for 100 days to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

The former vice president will assume power with a massive deployment of vaccine doses likely already underway. The Food and Drug Administration will meet Dec. 10 to review a Nov. 20 application from Pfizer for a vaccine candidate shown in clinical trials to be about 95 percent effective.
