CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - On Thursday, Dr. Bechara Choucair, the White House Vaccination Coordinator, visited West Virginia to meet with public health leaders and healthcare providers.

Dr. Choucair said the purpose of the visit was to receive an update from those on the frontlines about the work being done to fight the surge in COVID-19 cases and to discuss what the federal government can do to continue to support those efforts.

Dr. Choucair says on Wednesday, he met virtually with members of the West Virginia COVID-19 task force including Dr. Clay Marsh, WVDHHR Cabinet Secretary Bill Crouch and Retired Maj. Gen. Jim Hoyer.
