Former US presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton said they are willing to film their COVID-19 vaccinations to build public confidence in the shot's safety and effectiveness. Their comments come after polls suggest many Americans are wary about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. They suggested that once the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves a vaccine, filming their shots could help show the public that the vaccine was safe. Their words follow polls that suggest many Americans are wary about getting the COVID-19 vaccine. While the UK approved the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech on Wednesday, the US regulators are yet to make a decision.

WASHINGTON — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, will meet with members of President-elect Joe Biden's coronavirus pandemic response team for the first time Thursday, a transition official told CNBC. Fauci has already spoken with incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain, but Thursday's meeting, first reported by CNN, will be the first time that Fauci formally briefs Biden's Covid team. Nine months into the coronavirus pandemic, the nation is currently experiencing its worst phase yet, with more than 200,000 new cases and a record 2,800 deaths reported on Wednesday. The meeting between Fauci and Biden's advisors is occurring later in the year than many would have hoped. Dr. Deborah Birx, who coordinates the White House coronavirus task force, is also reportedly planning to begin formal coordination with the Biden transition team this week.

WH Covid task force urges health officials to sidestep unhelpful local governmentsThe White House coronavirus task force is warning that the risk from Covid-19 to Americans is at “a historic high” and urging public health officials to “alert the state population directly” if local governments balk at doing so, according to a copy of the latest task force report obtained by NBC News. “We are in a very dangerous place due to the current, extremely high COVID baseline and limited hospital capacity,” the report, which was distributed to the states earlier this week, says. “A further post-Thanksgiving surge will compromise COVID patient care, as well as medical care overall.”Notably, the task force is directing health officials to take matters into their own hands and circumvent state and local policies if they “do not reflect the seriousness of the current situation” by making sure the media is “saturated with public health messaging.”The message? Wear masks and practice social distancing. Report businesses and organizations that fail to comply with health regulations.

Sputnik V has been touted in Russia as the world’s “first registered Covid-19 vaccine” after it received regulatory approval in early August. The U.K. became the first country Wednesday to formally approve the Pfizer and BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, a symbolic milestone in the fight against the pandemic. The second option is to end quarantine after seven days if an individual tests negative and also reports no symptoms. “In the past few weeks I have been one of the victims of Covid,” Estefan said on Instagram.

The U.K. became the first country Wednesday to formally approve the Pfizer and BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, a symbolic milestone in the fight against the pandemic. Slaoui, who is leading the Trump administration’s Covid-19 vaccine program Operation Warp Speed, said that fact that an external British regulatory agency approved the vaccine is exciting because "of course they have not been involved in the politicization that surrounded the development." Still, Walke noted that a 14-day quarantine is still the best way to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19. “In the past few weeks I have been one of the victims of Covid,” Estefan said on Instagram.

Dr. Scott Atlas, the controversial White House coronavirus adviser, is resigning Tuesday, a White House official said Monday. Atlas, a neuroradiologist on leave from the Hoover Institution, a conservative think tank affiliated with Stanford University, has no background in infectious diseases. President Donald Trump invited him to join the task force in August after having seen him on Fox News. Like Trump, Atlas has downplayed the seriousness of the virus, questioning the efficacy of masks and urging the White House to embrace a strategy of "herd immunity." Stanford University called the comments "inconsistent with the university's approach in response to the pandemic" and said they reflected Atlas' personal views.

Americans who met with family they don't live with over Thanksgiving should assume they have COVID-19 and get tested, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force has said. She also appeared to suggest that families who split up for Thanksgiving should wear masks in their home. Experts are "deeply concerned" about the impact of Thanksgiving travel on COVID-19 rates in the US, she warned. Families should also wear masks indoors "if they chose to gather during Thanksgiving and others went across the country or even into the next state." Alongside these mandates, states and counties should close or reduce the capacity of spaces where people cannot wear masks, such as bars and indoor restaurants, she added.

But that did not stop Dr. Atlas. In mid-November, he called on people in Michigan to “rise up” against coronavirus restrictions. While Dr. Atlas was playing down the necessity of wearing masks, Dr. Birx was traveling the country preaching the opposite. But Dr. Atlas’s disagreements with Dr. Fauci were more visceral — and more public. After the election, Dr. Atlas accused Dr. Fauci of being a “political animal” who changed his assessment of the threat of the pandemic after it became clear that Mr. Trump had lost.

Response coordinator for White House Coronavirus Task Force Deborah Birx speaks as President Donald Trump listens during the daily briefing on the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, in the Brady Briefing Room of the White House in Washington, DC on April 21, 2020. WASHINGTON — White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx said she hopes to brief President-elect Joe Biden's administration on America's response to the Covid-19 pandemic on Monday. Birx, referencing statewide data, also raised concerns about a potential uptick in coronavirus cases across the United States due to the Thanksgiving holiday. At more than 13 million coronavirus cases, the U.S. is facing the most severe outbreak in terms of total numbers. The agreement, which is part of Operation Warp Speed, allows the U.S. to acquire an additional 500 million vaccine doses.

Fargo Mayor Dr. Tim Mahoney: Well, we're on the river right next to Minnesota where they have a mask mandate with enforcement. So, when we looked at that, we felt like let's see if people will be compliant with a mask mandate without enforcement. What's your response to that, and do you think Fargo could change that? And so, yeah, I think that for us, we were complimented because we did our mask mandate. And now we have six other cities that have a mask mandate or directive that they didn't have before.

By next year, vaccines will be widely available, making it very wise to hold off until Thanksgiving 2021 to do a big spread. You could truly save someone's life if you avoid big Thanksgiving celebrations until 2021. Add in a sprinkling of American exceptionalism, and it's easy to see why Thanksgiving has not been cancelled for so many. You're bored, you're tired, you're lonely, and that's your experience. "2021 is going to be a much, much better year," Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of Brown University's school of public health, told Insider.

(Reuters) - Wisconsin’s governor on Friday extended a statewide mask mandate despite a legal challenge from conservatives, renewing an emergency health order requiring face coverings in public spaces to curb an alarming surge in COVID-19 infections. Many Republican politicians, led by President Donald Trump, have belittled or criticized face coverings as an infringement of personal freedom. Public health experts say greater social mixing and indoor gatherings as the weather turns colder ahead of the holiday season is fueling a worsening contagion, putting already strained healthcare systems further under siege. His new health order requires everyone to wear masks in enclosed spaces except at home when no one from outside the household is present. Earlier in the day, Dr. Deborah Birx, a member of the White House coronavirus task force, appealed to Americans to avoid unnecessary travel and limit social gatherings during next week’s Thanksgiving holiday.

The face-covering mandate marked the latest in a flurry of new restrictions by state and local officials nationwide to tamp down COVID-19 cases soaring with the onset of winter. “Wisconsin hospitals are overwhelmed and facing staffing shortages,” Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, a Democrat, said in a press release.
