This is the March 30, 2022 hearing on "Moving Beyond the Coronavirus Crisis: The Biden Administration's Progress in Combating the Pandemic and Plan for the Next Phase," held before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis of the Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the opening statement of James E. Clyburn: "This is a hearing of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis. When we were established with this name in April 2020, we were experiencing the worst public health crisis since the 1918 flu pandemic, and we were experiencing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Today, while there is still significant oversight of the response to the crisis for the select subcommittee to conduct, the word 'crisis' no longer accurately describes the Coronavirus in our country. [...] Make no mistake; we do not move beyond the crisis by chance. Our success is the result of deliberate positive decisions and the decisive leadership of the Biden administration. And if Congress fails to provide the administration the resources needed to continue to combat the virus, we increase the risk that we will return to crisis. I look forward to hearing more from the three senior administration officials with us today about our success in getting to this point and how we can maintain and build on this success moving forward. [...] I look forward from hearing more about the new phase of the pandemic, the Biden administration's National COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Preparedness Plan, and how Americans would be impacted if Congress fails to provide the necessary funding." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Rochelle Walensky, Dawn O'Connell, and Vivek Murthy.
