This is the July 22, 2020 hearing on "Examining the National Response to the Worsening Coronavirus Pandemic: Part II," held before the Committee on Homeland Security, House of Representatives. From the Document: "Today the Committee on Homeland Security is meeting for Part II of our hearing to examine the National response to the worsening coronavirus pandemic. Two weeks ago, the committee heard from the State and local officials about how the Trump administration's failure to respond to the pandemic has harmed their communities and our Nation. [...] Nations around the world, like Canada, Australia, Japan, Korea, and many in Europe have managed to bring their outbreaks under control through coordinated responses, consistent messaging, and measures, such as face coverings, testing, and contact tracing. But here at home the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus has been an abject failure, and the American people have suffered the consequences. The President's gross incompetence and incoherent plan to respond to the pandemic has cost lives. [...] We need real leadership at the Federal level if our country is to overcome the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic and prevent more lives from being lost needlessly. Administrator Gaynor and his agency have a Herculean task ahead in many ways, made all the difficult by the President himself." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Peter T. Gaynor.
