Birx Slams ND for No Masks as Coronavirus Cases Soar

(CNN)If you’re in a coronavirus hotspot, watch out — Dr. Deborah Birx might be visiting and reinforcing some sharp lessons.

The White House coronavirus task force coordinator has been traveling across the country in recent weeks, meeting with state and local officials as the fall Covid-19 surge grips all regions of the country.

North Dakota had the highest rate of new cases in the US in the most recent task force report for the state, dated October 18. And during her visit to North Dakota on Monday, Birx slammed the inadequate mask usage in the state.

“Over the last 24 hours, as we were here and we were in your grocery stores and in your restaurants, and frankly even in your hotels, this is the least use of masks that we have we seen in retail establishments of any place we have been,” Birx told local reporters, according to The Bismarck Tribune.
