Appearing Sunday on Fox News Channel’s Life, Liberty & Levin, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told host Mark Levin the Trump administration’s coordinated response to combat the Chinese coronavirus has been “impressive.”
A transcript is as follows:
MARK LEVIN: You’ve been doing this a long time. Have you ever seen this big of a coordinated response by an administration to such a threat, a health threat?
DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: We’ve never had a threat like this and the coordinated response has been — there are a number of adjectives to describe it — impressive, I think is one of them. We’re talking about all hands on deck. I, one of many people on the team, I’m not the only person, since the beginning that we even recognized what this was, I have been devoting almost full-time on this. I’m down at the White House virtually every day with the task force. I’m connected by phone throughout the day and into the night. When I say night, I’m talking 12:00, 1:00, 2:00 in the morning. I’m not the only one. There’s a whole group of us that are doing that. It’s every single day. I can’t imagine that under any circumstances that anybody could be doing more. Obviously, we’re fighting a forminable enemy. This virus serious issue here.
