SARS: How Effective is the State and Local Response? Hearing Before the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations of the Committee on Governmental Affairs, United States Senate, One Hundred Eighth Congress, First Session, May 21, 2003
United States. Government Printing Office
This is the May 21, 2003 hearing on "SARS: How Effective is the State and Local Response?" held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs. From the opening statement of Norm Coleman: "When a new disease such as SARS or the West Nile virus hits local communities, several things have to happen. First, local doctors need to know how to recognize that something new is happening and need to know who to turn to for information and support. Second, at the national and international levels, agencies must quickly develop information about the characteristics of the disease in order to treat patients and prevent its spread. The World Health Organization, the National Institutes for Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention perform this role well. Third, and this is most important, in my opinion, the information these agencies develop must be transmitted back to mayors, hospital administrators, and airport officials so that doctors, airline attendants, researchers, and average citizens know what to do in order to protect themselves. In the end, our goal ought to be to develop a national response, predicated on the understanding that the bulwark of that response is going to be at the local level--and by local government and elected officials. And that they must have the resources and the cooperation of the Federal Government to do so." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Julie L. Gerberding, Anthony S. Fauci, Michael T. Osterholm, Rodney N. Huebbers, Thomas R. Frieden, Mary C. Selecky, Lawrence O. Gostin, Bruce R. Cords, and Vicki Grunseth.
