Fauci: Speedy Biden Transition Critical To Vax Rollout

NBC News reports:

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday stressed that he’s concerned that the Trump administration has not yet greenlighted the formal transition to the incoming Biden administration, which the infectious disease expert said is key to the quick distribution of a Covid-19 vaccine.

In an interview on NBC’s “TODAY” show, host Savannah Guthrie asked Fauci whether he’s concerned that the Trump administration has not signed off on the formal transition period for the Biden team.

“Obviously, it’s something that we’re concerned about,” he said. “I mean, as you know, I’ve served in six administrations, so I’ve seen a number of transitions and I know that transitions are very important. Hopefully, we’ll see that soon.”
