Biden announces his COVID-19 task force.

The president-elect of the United States, Joe Biden, confirmed that the fight against COVID-19 is his number one priority, announcing this Monday the experts who will make up his advisory committee on the epidemic, with a view to winning one of the most important battles when he takes office on January 20, Radio Rebelde publishes.

In a statement, Biden stressed that he will allow himself to be advised by science and experts, in apparent opposition to Donald Trump, who has even questioned the advice of the main White House epidemiologist, Anthony Fauci.

Biden explained in his message today that the advisory board against coronavirus will help him design his work to face the spike in infections; ensuring that vaccines are safe, effective and distributed efficiently, equitably and free of charge, as well as protecting high-risk populations.

Doctors David Kessler, Vivek Murthy and Marcella Nunez-Smith will lead the team, which will include ten other members, whose experience has highlighted the Biden campaign, emphasizing that their work will be essential to develop a strategy with which to cope. the spike in infections in at least 40 states.

The former Democratic vice president spent much of the campaign criticizing Trump’s management of the crisis and had promised to listen to scientists in taking direction on that issue.

The United States on Sunday became the first nation in the world to exceed 10 million coronavirus infections since the pandemic began, as the third wave of the virus spreads across the country.

Joe Biden’s advisers continue to advance in the process of transition to his presidency, with the analysis of the candidates to occupy positions in the new administration.

However, the process will remain stalled until the official winner of the presidency is certified by the General Services Administration, in charge of controlling the functioning of federal agencies.

The person appointed by Trump to lead that entity, Emily Murphy, has not yet given the green light for the transition of power to begin, nor has she communicated any date for that decision.

The Biden campaign put pressure on Murphy, warning him that America’s national security and economic interests depended on a clear signal that the country was committed to a smooth and peaceful transition of power and that Trump respected the will of the people.

Yet Trump has shown no signs that he is willing to let that transition begin, has not acknowledged defeat and has launched a series of lawsuits to support his claims of voter fraud. It has not presented any evidence, while representatives of the states involved say they are not aware of any significant wrongdoing.

Trump does not have any public events scheduled for Monday, and has not made any comments since Thursday, but his spokesman, Tim Murtaugh, said that the mogul is planning to hold a series of large-scale rallies as part of a campaign that raises support in his struggle to turn the results around.

According to four Trump advisers cited by Axios, the still president plans to present obituaries or comments on deceased people whose vote would have been counted, the sources said.

Additionally, Trump and his allies are forming specific teams that will handle vote counting in key states like Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania and Georgia.

Trump’s team has also launched a special media operation to host regular press conferences, legal action releases and, obviously, things like talk and hiring topics on television.

Nor have Republican leaders in Congress recognized Biden as president-elect, a demonstration of the obstacles the Democrat could face in the future when it comes to working with lawmakers from Trump’s party.

The official results of the 2020 US presidential election have not yet been released, but projections from the country’s mainstream media gave Joe Biden the victory.

Several world leaders and politicians have already congratulated the Democratic candidate, who gave a speech to the nation on Saturday, when he claimed his victory in the presidential race.
