As Covid-19 cases continue to soar in the U.S, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows revealed that it is not “going to control the pandemic.” This statement has been issued last Sunday during an interview by CNN with Meadows. Allegedly, the Trump administration has consistently been disregarding health protocols to contain the virus. Reports say the White House may be facing a second outbreak after it was revealed that at least five of U.S Vice President Pence’s staff have tested positive in the recent days. Meadows, however, disclosed that Pence will still continue campaigning.
CNN: “We are not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation areas.”
In an interview last Sunday by CNN’s Jake Tapper with President Trump’s Chief of Staff, he mentioned that the U.S is “not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation areas.”
Meadow’s comments came as the coronavirus continues to surge across the U.S and the administration continues to consistently disregard advice from government health experts to wear masks, social distance and avoid large gatherings as a way to curb the spread of the virus, says CNN.
The White House is also facing a potential second outbreak of the virus after at least five people in Vice President Pence’s inner circle have tested positive in recent days, according to a source familiar with the situation.
