The newly elected President of the United States, Joe Biden, has appointed Dr. Vivek Murthy, his principal advisor on COVID-19 and Indian-American Dr. Vivek Murthy, as the next Surgeon General. However, it has not been formally announced yet. This information has been given in the news in the media. Media reports said that Murthy was given the same role in the Obama administration. He had to step down abruptly during the Trump administration.

Biden’s three-member Kovid — 19 advisory board — includes 43-year-old Indian-origin doctor Murthy. On Thursday, quoting a person involved in this decision, Washington Post reports that former US Surgeon General Vivek H Murthy has been asked to play the old role. A formal announcement will be made soon.

The term of Surgeon General in America is four years and he is the top official of the government in public health matters. In the current term, Jerome Adams is appointed to this position. Murthy was appointed to the post of Surgeon General on 15 December 2014 after approval of 51–43 votes in the Senate. President Donald Trump’s administration released him on 21 April 2017. Dr. Murthy, co-founder of Doctors for America, has worked in many hospitals.
