ABSTRACT

COVID-19 and U.S. International Pandemic Preparedness, Prevention, and Response   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "This hearing comes as the COVID-19 [coronvirus disease 2019] pandemic is proving what public health experts have warned for years: no country in the world is adequately prepared for a lethal pandemic. Many countries today are failing to contain the virus, whether through poor management, weak systems, late action, or all of the above. There is an aphorism that one must never waste a crisis. So even as we work to defeat the current pandemic, we must begin learning from the failures to contain it, and prepare ourselves to be more ready the next time around."
