Dr. Birx has impressive background and steady demeanor that brings a calming influence to the fight against coronavirus. She was a colonel in the US Army and has an impressive career in clinical immunology, including over a decade of work on HIV/AIDS vaccine research. In 2014 she was nominated by President Obama and confirmed by the Senate as the United States Global AIDS Coordinator.
In a maternal and powerful fashion, Dr. Birx addressed the younger generation, an age group that does not seem to have the mortality risks of Coronavirus that their parents and grandparents are facing.
“I want to speak particularly to our largest generations now, our millennials,” Birx said. “I am the mom of two wonderful millennial young women who are bright and hard working, and I will tell you what I told to them: they are the core group that will stop this virus.”“They are the group that communicates successfully independent of picking up a phone. They intuitively know how to contact each [other] without being in a large social gatherings.”
Dr. Birx note that while many young people may not experience the symptoms, they can still transmit the virus to more vulnerable groups. “We’re protecting the Greatest Generation right now, and the children of the Greatest Generation,” she said. “And [millennials] need to communicate with each other.”
Dr. Birx is one of the several stars on the Trump coronavirus team of experts.
