(NewsGlobal.com)- Former Trump COVID task force coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx is making the rounds of news shows hawking her new book “Silent Invasion: The Untold Story of the Trump Administration, COVID, and Preventing the Next Pandemic Before it’s Too Late.”
On Sunday, Birx appeared on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” with host Margaret Brennan where she warned that the country had better prepare for a possible summer surge in COVID cases.
Birx said what happened last year, with cases dropping in May and then surging again in the middle of June, is likely to happen again. She said looking at the global data, South Africa is once again “on an upslope,” adding that each surge in cases comes every four to six months. Birx concludes that natural immunity must wane after four to six months, leading her to suspect another “significant surge is going to occur again.”
Since summer surges happened both in 2020 and 2021, Birx told Brennan that the country should be making preparations now for “a potential surge” hitting southern states again this summer.
Dr. Deborah Birx, former Trump admin. COVID-19 response coordinator, warns the U.S. should be preparing for a "potential surge" across the South this summer.

You can understand why Deborah Birx is playing up the portents of doom and gloom. She’s got a book to sell.
Who’s going to buy her book on how to prevent the next pandemic if nobody is terrified of another pandemic?
But like Tony Fauci and the rest of those COVID goblins, Deborah Birx has lost a great deal of credibility. While there are still some Americans who continue to live in a blind panic over COVID, most people have moved on with their lives and are not likely to set their hair on fire every time one of these COVID fear-porn-peddlers opens her mouth.
