Birx: “I didn’t see it coming”

There was a stark admission during Tuesday’s Task Force press conference.

Trying to tar President Trump, a reporter asked Dr. Deborah Birx why the administration initially downplayed the potential severity of COVID-19.

Her answer wasn’t quite what the reporter was fishing for:

When the initial data started coming out of China, the thinking was that this was more like SARs, not a global pandemic.

The medical community interpreted the data as if it was serious, but smaller than (it turned out to be)


Isn’t that what Trump was saying in early January?

I wonder where he got his info … the medical community, maybe?
