White House Coronavirus Coordinator Jeff Zients has abandoned President Joe Biden amid discussions of future Coronavirus variants.
Zients announced his decision to depart the team this week.
Zients’ decision comes after a year of leading President Joe Biden’s team.
“I called on Jeff Zients to lead my Administration’s COVID-19 response because there is no one better at delivering results than Jeff,” Biden said.
“Zients was the voice behind every video call coronavirus briefing and coordinated the response from both Dr. Anthony Fauci and Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky,” reports Breitbart News.
“He is a man of service and an expert manager,” Biden said. “I will miss his counsel and I’m grateful for his service.”
“The president noted under Zients’ leadership, Americans were finally starting to get back to ‘more normal routines’ even as another wave of the virus threatens to ramp up coronavirus precautions and restrictions again,” Breitbart reports.
“Biden warned the American people the fight against the virus was ‘far from done’ and that the administration needed to get more vaccines and boosters,” according to Breitbart.
“We must fight the virus overseas, prepare for new waves, and new variants – all of which can be coming,” Biden warned.
“Biden announced that Dr. Ashish Jha would replace Zients as the new coronavirus coordinator,” reports Breitbart.
