WASHINGTON – Vice President Mike Pence is adding five members now to public service while the White House is focused on trying to rebuild the country safely and accelerate the development of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The new members include two doctors who specialize in vaccine development: Drs. Peter Marks, director of the Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the Food and Drug Administration, is Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health. With the assistance of about 20 people are Thomas Engels, director of Healthource and Services Administration, Eugene Scalia Secretary and Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

Pence reversed this just a week after the White House bowed and forced the public to shut down the operation, which has been accelerating U.S. response. to coronavirus since late January.

The announcement will come when President Donald Trump has called on the former medical examiner to direct all his efforts to the government and develop a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year.
