Dr. Deborah Birx has been great throughout the Coronavirus crisis.
She has been an excellent source of information and a solid and valuable member of Trump’s team.
This week, she admonished the media for spreading hysteria and asked them to stop doing it.
Dr. Birx Pops Media’s Coronavirus Panic Balloon
During the coronavirus taskforce briefing on Thursday, Dr. Deborah Birx rebuked much of the media’s panic reporting about the number of estimated deaths related to the coronavirus and the state of America’s medical supplies.
Despite clamorous reports about a shortage of medical supplies in New York, Dr. Birx said her colleagues in the state have reassured her that ICU beds are still readily available and more than a thousand ventilators remain unused. Dr. Birx then took the press to task for their hysterical reporting.
“Please, for the reassurance of people around the world,” Dr. Birx begged the press corps, “to wake up this morning and look at people talking about creating DNR situations, do not resuscitate situations for patients, there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.”
Dr. Birx said the coronavirus cases are currently concentrated in urban areas and the focus should be on getting medical resources into those areas from nearby parts of the state that are unaffected by the virus or from other places in the United States.
