This is the March 5, 2020 hearing titled "Coronaviruses: Understanding the Spread of Infectious Diseases and Mobilizing Innovative Solutions," held before the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Ami Bera: "Good morning, and welcome today's hearing on 'Coronavirus: Understanding the Spread of the Infectious Disease, and Mobilizing Innovative Solutions'. I'll recognize myself for an opening statement, and then I'll recognize the Ranking Member for his opening statement, then we'll introduce the witnesses. Again, thank you for being here. Obviously, this is an incredibly timely topic. COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] is not the first pandemic we're going to ever deal with, and it certainly is not going to be the last one, but it is incredibly important that we come together as a nation, and as a planet, to get ahead of this, address it, and, you know, come up with the treatment for it. If we think about, you know, the basis of global health security, it's a three-pronged approach, containment, mitigation, and then treatment." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Suzan Murray, John Brownstein, Peter Hotez, and Tara Kirk Sell.
