Former White House coronavirus adviser, Deborah Barks believes the Trump administration could have prevented millions of deaths after the first initial uprising. Burns said in an interview with CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta that the White House could do more to protect Americans.

The program was due to released on Sunday evening, but clips of Barks’ comments shared on Saturday. “There have been about a million deaths that came from the original uprising,” Barks told CNN. “Everything else, in my opinion, can be reduced or substantially reduced.” The former adviser added that more than 80 percent of American deaths could have avoided, according to Insider.

Bars have been critical of the comments since the clip released. California Rep. Ted Liu says he also blames the previous administration for not putting pressure on him.

Dr. Barks was afraid to challenge his unscientific statement and wrongly praised.” Birx is no stranger to catching heat for its position on Trump’s coronavirus task force. In the early days of the epidemic, he criticized for praising the former administration’s efforts to deal with the epidemic.

“He was so obsessed with scientific literature and details and information, “Barks said at a March 26, 2020, White House press event. There has been a real benefit during this discussion on medical issues.” According to Johns Hopkins University, 549,155 people died from the coronavirus at the time of the press.
