From the Document: "During the initial months of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] response, the Nation faced dramatic shortages of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare personnel as hospitals experienced an unprecedented demand for ventilators to treat patients. The objective of this audit was to determine how effectively FEMA supported and coordinated Federal efforts to distribute PPE and ventilators in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. [...] We made three recommendations to improve FEMA's current and future pandemic response operations."
