Mike DeWine: Republican Ohio Governor Says Follow Fauci And Birx Who Have Given Very Good Guidance On Covid-19

“You know, my contact in the White House was Dr. Birx and Dr. Fauci. They were coordinated very closely. The message was,” We have to take this matter seriously, we have to wear a mask, “Dewane told CNN reporter Jake Taber on “State of the Union” when asked about the role played by Dr. Scott Atlas, controversial member of the task force, in the epidemic.
