NYC Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot out, Dr. Dave A. Chokshi named replacement

Published by:

New York City Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot resigned on Tuesday, expressing her “deep disappointment” with the de Blasio administration’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis. Barbot, in the resignation letter she submitted Tuesday morning, said the Health Department’s expertise was not sufficiently tapped. “I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been.” Her letter continued: “Our experts are world-renowned for their epidemiology, surveillance and response work. The city would be well served by having them at the strategic center of the response not in the background.” When asked why Barbot resigned, de Blasio said “it became clear it was time for a change,” while stressing it was “not obviously about one thing.”
