Speaking on NBC's Today, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he accepted President-elect Joe Biden's offer to serve as his chief medical adviser "right on the spot."
"Oh, absolutely, I said yes right on the spot," said Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a member of Trump's coronavirus task force,
Additionally, when asked about Biden asking Americans to wear a mask for 100 days, Fauci said he believes this is a good idea.
"I spoke to him about that, he just wants to get — and it's a good idea — uniform. He's saying, 'Hey folks, trust me, everybody for 100 days' that might be that after that we still are gonna need it, but he just wants everybody for a commitment for 100 days, and I discussed that with him, and I told him I thought that was a good idea," Fauci said.
