Following Dr. Anthony Fauci’s statement last week, Dr. Deborah Birx became the second White House Coronavirus Task Force member to support in-person voting in the fall.
“Well, I can tell you it has been safe for me to go to Starbucks and pick up my order,” Birx said in an interview with Just The News. “If you go into Starbucks in the middle of Texas and Alabama and Mississippi that have very high case rates, then I can’t say that it would be different waiting in line in the polls.”
I know there’s a way but you really do have to pay attention,” Birx noted, adding that masks and social distancing should be utilized while voting.
Birx’ opinion comes after traveling the country by car and conducting informal research on how Americans have been practicing COVID-19 health guidelines.
“Vaccines are being manufactured and that’s going well,” she added.
Dr. Birx explained that the current internal dialogue surrounds which Americans should be vaccinated first one is eventually approved.
“Certainly, we would want to vaccinate those that we know are at the highest risk; individuals in nursing homes, those with multiple co-morbidities, having both hypertension, diabetes and a weight issue,” she said. “Those are individuals independent of age that we would like to see vaccinated.”
“I think if carefully done, according to the guidelines, there’s no reason that I can see why that not be the case,” said the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director. “If you go and wear a mask, if you observe the physical distancing, and don’t have a crowded situation, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to do that.”
