Overseas network, January 25 (Xinhua) fudge, the top infectious disease expert in the United States, recalled his working experience in the trump government in an interview with the US media a few days ago, saying that he had received threatening letters and thought he would die.
Fudge revealed in an interview with the New York Times that he had received a letter containing white powder last year (2020). When he opened it, the powder quickly covered his face and chest, business insider reported.
“It must be one of three things: it’s a scam, or anthrax, or ricin, and I might be dead.” According to fudge, the material in the envelope is frightening. “My wife and children are more upset than I am.”
Fudge revealed that on March 28, 2020, he began to receive death threats. At that time, he was just beginning to join the fight against the new coronavirus, and often appeared in white house meetings and press conferences. The US media further pointed out that in this year, however, Trump and his allies often openly flouted Fudge’s scientific response to the epidemic, and the two often disagreed.
Fudge, who is currently the chief medical adviser in Biden’s administration, said he is not sure how many years he will work, but he is not ready to leave Washington or his office in Maryland soon. “I hope to do this all the time until we can suppress this outbreak and people can return to normal life.” (Li Meng, overseas)
