Biden reveals his COVID-19 Advisory Board

United States President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris revealed on Monday the names of "leading public health experts" who will provide advice to the new White House administration concerning the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr. David Kessler, Dr. Vivek Murthy, and Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith will be the co-chairs of the Transition COVID-19 Advisory Board, with Dr. Beth Cameron and Dr. Rebecca Katz as advisors to the Transition on COVID-19.

Among the other members of the board is Dr. Rick Bright, former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, who was demoted by the Trump administration, and subsequently filed a whistleblower complaint, claiming that his removal was ordered due to him raising concerns about the administration's response to the coronavirus pandemic. Bright also questioned hydroxychloroquine as treatment for COVID-19, causing a clash with US President Donald Trump.
