U.S. President-elect Joe Biden has picked California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Becerra has never held a health policy role – but he’s got a long history of involvement in the nation’s Affordable Care Act. If confirmed, he’ll be tasked with helping Biden fulfill a key commitment – distributing 100 million COVID-19 vaccines in his first 100 days in office. CGTN’s Ediz Tiyansan reports on Becerra’s background.
