Dr. Rochelle Walensky is the new Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Administrator of the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Prior to her appointment at the CDC, she was the Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Walensky is an expert on AIDS and HIV.
Quote: “With these statistics, I am really worried about more states rolling back the exact public health measures we have recommended to protect people from Covid-19. Seventy thousand cases a day seems good compared to where we were just a few months ago. Please hear me clearly: At this level of cases with variants spreading, we stand to completely lose the hard-earned ground we have gained.”
