Silent invasion : the untold story of the Trump administration, Covid-19, and preventing the next pandemic before it's too late / Dr. Deborah Birx.

Birx, Deborah L., (author.).

Summary

Summary:

"In late February 2020, Dr. Deborah Birx--a lifelong federal health official who had worked at the CDC, the State Department, and the US Army across multiple presidential administrations--was asked to join the Trump White House Coronavirus Task Force and assist the already faltering federal response to the Covid-19 pandemic. For weeks, she'd been raising the alarm behind the scenes about what she saw happening in public--from the apparent lack of urgency at the White House to the routine downplaying of the risks to Americans. Once in the White House, she was tasked with helping fix the broken federal approach and making President Trump see the danger this virus posed to all of us. Silent Invasion is the story of what she witnessed and lived for the next year--an eye-opening, inside account, detailed here for the first time, of the Trump Administration's response to the greatest public health crisis in modern times"-- Provided by publisher.
