On the call with reporters, @HHS_ASH Giroir says 85M #COVID19 tests completed.
91.9% completed in 3 days at major referral labs & 97.9% completed in 5 days [what good does a 5 days return do?]
A mean of 2.27 days turn around.

Giroir really likes to say "everything has been now wrapped up with a bow on it."

Wow, @HHS_ASH Giroir just now on the phone with reporters:

"It's great to talk about this utopian kind of idea where everybody has a test every day & we can do that. I don't live in a utopian world. I live in the real world."

#COVID19 cc: @ashishkjha @DrTomFrieden
.@HHS_ASH Giroir: "I don't want to answer any more when is that day going to happen, because I can't tell you."

.@DrNancyM_CDC on #COVID19 vaccinations: It's the early stages of the complicated task but a task we're up for.
These are new vaccines & new platforms.
Storage/handling/administering slightly complicated.

#STATPlusConversations .@DrNancyM_CDC: Now that facilities/hospitals have experience with #COVID19 #vaccines & holidays over, expect pace of administration to go up massively in next couple of weeks.

Here's #WarpSpeed's Slaoui again #gaslighting.
No, it wasn't just 20M #COVID19 #vaccines doses "available" or "allocated."

Watch how Slaoui squirms when clips replayed of him, Azar, Trump all saying 20M vaccinated by end of 2020.

And then Slaoui goes on to lie again here.
#WarpSpeed's Slaoui Dec. 2: "We will be able to distribute enough vaccine to immunize 20 million people in the U.S. in December — that's 40 million doses."

They failed. They've not distributed those #COVID19 #vaccines doses.

It's Jan 5 & only 15.4M delivered/4.5 administered.
Does #WarpSpeed's Moncef Slaoui have any credibility left?

After Slaoui lies on national TV & then is confronted with clips of him stating he said 20M people vaccinated/immunized by end of 2020, he brushes it off with "So," & then lies again.

Here's Alex Azar #gaslighting on #COVID19 #vaccines & also appearing to shoot down Slaoui $MRNA half-dose idea.

Azar/Slaoui vowed 40M doses - enough to vaccinate 20M - by end of 2020. #Christmas was always part of their schedule. They failed but want to make excuse after excuse.
How much confidence should Americans have when Alex Azar says he's surprised there haven't been more glitches with #COVID19 vaccinations & brushes off everything that's gone wrong as expected? Really?
spglobal.com/marketintellig… #vaccines $PFE $MRNA
The commitment was to have 40 million #COVID19 #vaccines doses - enough to vaccinate 20 million people -"distributed" by the end of 2020, not "available" as Azar is #gaslighting today & Slaoui/Perna tried to do same at last week's #WarpSpeed briefing. Azar failed on delivery.

Dem Reps. Lamb & Golden voted for other people, while Reps. Slotkin, Spanberger & Sherrill voted "present."

So, in his House speech, is McCarthy going to say anything about #Georgia today?

The U.S. surpassed 350,000 reported deaths from #COVID19 last night.
gisanddata.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashbo…

And Trump, Pence & Alex Azar are doing what about it today?

Where is the accountability for these deaths?

#MaskUp
As of yesterday #CDC says 13,071,925 doses of #COVID19 #vaccines distributed but only 4,225,756 administered.
covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tra…

Recall, Alex Azar pushed back against any additional funds for states to administer vaccines. #HHS was also slow to distribute #CARESAct funds.
Fauci on #ThisWeek: "There's no running away from the numbers."
"The deaths are real deaths."

Meanwhile, Trump remains in denial & continues to undermine #CDC's #publichealth experts.
