December 22, 2020: Dr. Fauci received his first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
Trump, just three months before the outbreak, cut off funding for the Emerging Pandemic Threats PREDICT program—a much praised early warning system that had identified hundreds of dangerous Asian pathogens, mostly coronaviruses, poised to jump from animals to humans. If we had this program, it is possible we have much effective system to monitor, control, and prevent COVID-19 from happening in US. From this event alone, I feel deeply sorry for US who elected a leader without any government experience. In this case, the businessman tried to save few million dollars. By the end, the disaster costs US trillion dollars and more than 300,000 lives. This is also an uneventful for Dr. Fauci, who is at a top position of national infectious diseases and made no protest against Trump’s decision.
As of today, December 31, 2020, there are 20,216,991 coronavirus cases and 350,778 deaths in the US. Government has the undeniable responsibilities for this outcome. Without the tireless efforts from Dr. Anthony Fauci, Kcancer Hero, the situation may be much worse than this.
In January 2021, Dr. Fauci will become Chief Medical Advisor to the President in the Biden administration.
