BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — President Trump's top public health official gave Massachusetts credit for how it responded to the COVID-19 crisis and surge in cases.
United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar visited Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where researchers are set to begin clinical trials on a coronavirus vaccine.
Thanks to the efforts of our frontline healthcare workers, and that means not just doctors and nurses. That means our janitors, our orderlies, everybody who works in these kinds of healthcare facilities and puts themselves at risk for the benefit of all of the rest of us. Thanks to all of them here at Beth Israel, thanks to the hard work of our state and local leaders, like Governor Baker and his team. And thanks to President Trump's leadership for making progress against the virus every day.
