One of the White House’s coronavirus response team’s former members has said that 80% of COVID-19 deaths in the US could have been mitigated.

During an interview with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Dr. Deborah Birx, a former member of the White House coronavirus response team, said that there any deaths above 100,000 could have been mitigated or decreased substantially.

Right now, there are nearly 550,000 COVID-19 related deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins University COVID-19 tracker.

Birx and the Trump administration have been put on blast for the way they handled the COVID-19 pandemic, and according to Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California, the responsibility begins at the top.

“The malicious incompetence that resulted in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths starts at the top, with the former President and his enablers. And who was one of his enablers? Dr. Birx, who was afraid to challenge his unscientific rhetoric and wrongfully praised him.”
