    President-elect Joe Biden unveiled his health team Tuesday, saying they will be ready to help fight the pandemic “on day one.”

    Biden named California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to become his health and human services secretary and infectious disease expert Dr. Rochelle Walensky to head the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Biden is also elevating Dr. Anthony Fauci to medical adviser, and nominating Dr. Vivek Murthy as surgeon general for the second time. Murthy served in that role during the Obama administration.

    Biden said in announcing his team that “out of our collective pain, we’re gonna find collective purpose to control the pandemic…and to heal as a nation.”

    At an event in Wilmington to introduce his pandemic response team, Biden laid out his top three priorities for the start of his new government.

    He repeated his previous calls for all Americans to wear masks for 100 days to prevent the spread of the virus and said he’d mandate doing so in federal buildings and on public transportation, while also making the new promise to distribute 100 million vaccines shots over the same period.
