United States entering 'different' phase of coronavirus outbreak

Nancy Pelosi Says She Has No Confidence in Dr. Deborah Birx

The health official also denied that she was falsely spinning the pandemic in a positive light on Trump's behalf after Bash mentioned that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) had said she did not have confidence in Birx.

The dust-up comes as the country continues to be ravaged by coronavirus, with more than 150,000 United States citizens dead and more than 4 million cases.

Birx attributed the increased presence of the virus to "super spreading events" and said each stat needs a "dramatically tailored" approach to curbing the spread of the virus including implementing a "set of recommendations based on what we are seeing at the community level, what we are seeing relevant to the hospitals". The New York Times article also called Birx, "the chief evangelist for the idea that the threat from the virus was fading".

As of Sunday, the USA had tallied more than 4,813,647 cases of Covid-19 and 158,365 deaths, according to various virus trackers, making it by far the hardest-hit country in the world.

"As I travelled around the country, I saw all of America moving", Dr Birx said.

"That's why we're going to all the states, we're on local radio, we give specific instructions to every governor by county, what they need to do when we start - when those counties start tipping yellow, because that's the time when you have to stamp it down", he said.

"We are in a new phase", Birx said. Trump has consistently lied and mislead mostly in attempts to downplay concerns about the virus as he presses for schools and businesses to reopen.

"I said, supposing you brought the light inside of the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way", Trump said, speaking directly to Birx. Trump's daily briefings on the virus were abruptly canceled after the outing, but were revived again last month. Is Trump's testing tsar Brett Giroir to blame? Birx did not mention that the country does not have enough testing with tight enough turnaround to get an accurate read on Covid-19 prevalence in most school districts, making the federal guidelines moot. "If you have chosen to go on vacation into a hotspot, you really need to come back and protect those with comorbidities and assume you're infected".
