Operation Warp Speed chief adviser submits resignation at request of Biden transition

Source: The Hill


BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/13/21 09:19 AM EST

Moncef Slaoui, the chief adviser to Operation Warp Speed, on Wednesday, submitted his resignation as part of a plan to hand the vaccination effort over to President-elect Biden's coronavirus team.

Slaoui's resignation, which will go into effect next month according to CNBC, comes as the president-elect has yet to name a new chief scientific adviser for the federal government's vaccine deployment program, which has so far seen just over 9 million Americans receive the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Representatives for Biden's transition team did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill.

The president-elect has named business executive and former Office of Management and Budget (OMB) appointee Jeffrey Zients to oversee his COVID-19 response, while Kaiser Permanente's chief health officer Bechara Chouchair is Biden's vaccine coordinator.

3. I disagree with that assessment. Biden needs his own team, but Slaoui is not a crook

There is no question though that Operation Warp speed was a disaster in the distribution of the vaccines into people's arms, and the planning to do that was not well done

Not too much of a surprise since everything that involves trump is a disaster

6. "Everything trump touches dies"...I think this is a republican thing.

When GW Bush was president that is how I thought of him, I told people that Bush had the "unMidas touch" because everything he touches dies, and of course it is true from trump, but somehow it seems to be a republican thing.
