This is the July 10, 2020 hearing on "Pandemic Response: Confronting the Unequal Impacts of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery, of the Committee on Homeland Security. From the opening statement of Donald M. Payne, Jr.: "Our Nation is facing a crisis of unprecedented proportions. The novel corona pandemic has already infected over 3 million and killed over 100,000 Americans. The scale of the loss is staggering, and efforts to produce a life-saving vaccine continue, but not all Americans have been impacted equally. Communities of color are not only more likely to be infected by the COVID-19, but they are also more likely to be killed by the virus. [...] This administration's response to the outbreak has been an utter failure on a multitude of levels. Nowhere is this more acute than in its neglect of minority health." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Georges C. Benjamin, Leana Wen and Chauncia Willis.
