This is the June 24, 2020 hearing on "Role of the Strategic National Stockpile in Pandemic Response," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Ron Johnson: "COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] continues to inflict a terrible human and economic toll on the United States. In just over five months, the U.S. has experienced over 120,000 deaths and over 2 million total infections, and tens of millions have lost their jobs. As Congress reviews our response to COVID-19, it is important to take the lessons we have learned during this crisis to better prepare for a pandemic or other biological event of this scale in the future. The focus of today's hearing is the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS)." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Julie L. Gerberding, Daniel M. Gerstein, W. Gregory Burel, and Andrew Phelps. The duration of this video is 2 hours, 6 minutes, and 37 seconds.
