Washington: Indian-American physician Dr Vivek Murthy is likely to co-chair the COVID-19 task force, which President-elect Joe Biden is going to declare on Monday.

Murthy, who originally hails from Karnataka, was appointed as America’s 19th Surgeon General by then president Barack Obama in 2014.

He was the youngest ever to hold the office at the age of 37 but was later asked to step down by the Trump administration.

“On Monday, I will name a group of leading scientists and experts as Transition Advisors to help take the Biden-Harris COVID plan and convert it into an action blueprint that starts on January 20th, 2021,” said Biden in his victory speech on Saturday night, in Wilmington.

However, the President-elect did not mention who will lead the task force.

As a report by The Washington Post, the task force would be co-chaired by Dr Murthy, the former Surgeon General, and David Kessler, a former Food and Drug Administration commissioner.

“The task force… could begin meeting within days,” the daily said.
