Biden reveals new COVID advisory board members

The transition team of United States President-elect Joe Biden announced on Saturday three new members of its COVID-19 advisory board, bringing the total number to 16.

"As the COVID-19 surges across the country, I need a team advising me and a transition that offers diverse perspectives and viewpoints. Ms. Hopkins, Dr. Jim, and Dr. Michaels will strengthen the board's work and help ensure that our COVID-19 planning will address inequities in health outcomes and the workforce," Biden's statement noted.

The three new board members include registered nurse Jane Hopkins, Navajo Nation Health Department Executive Director Jill Jim and epidemiologist David Michaels.
