At the Humanities Union conference, Vice President Joe Biden announced on Friday that he has enlisted himself, as well as a new 30-member group to fight the possible spread of contagious diseases such as Zika and West Nile.
The group is headed by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. The person with the most momentum is Vice President Mike Pence, who is chomping at the bit to make sure that the Joint Intensive Virus Task Force report is completed before it goes before Congress and the public, according to Vice President Pence’s spokesperson.
