This is the July 14, 2021 hearing on "Principles for Outbreak Investigation: COVID-19 and Future Infectious Diseases," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight of the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. From the opening statement of Bill Foster: "For the past year and a half the Science Committee and Congress have been appropriately focused on optimizing our response to the pandemic, and making sure that the full power of our country's scientific apparatus is engaged in that battle. But now that the vaccines are succeeding in easing--in crushing the national caseload of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], it is time to turn some of our attention to how that international catastrophe started, and what can be done to lessen the toll of future outbreaks. We are convening this first hearing to look at the scientific underpinnings of that investigation." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David Relman, Thomas C. and Joan M. Merigan; Stanley Perlman; Connie Price; and Suzan Murray.
