The US top infectious diseases expert is urging the White House to stop attacks on him and focus on the coronavirus.
The White House is distancing itself from a scathing attack made on the country’s top infectious diseases expert by a senior Trump adviser.
It follows an op-ed in the US media criticising Dr Anthony Fauci.
Trump says he has a good relationship with Fauci and the article was “unacceptable”.
