Trust for America's Health Letter to House and Senate Leaders Urging Additional CDC Funding to Combat COVID-19

April 03, 2020

To: The Honorable Mitch McConnell, The Honorable Charles Schumer, The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, and The Honorable Kevin McCarthy

"The COVID-19 pandemic is illustrating in the direst terms the consequences of underfunding public health. The delays in diagnostic testing are hampering communities’ ability to suppress the virus. Public health departments are attempting to conduct statewide situational awareness and management of medical supply shortages. The response is personnel-heavy – investigating cases, managing supplies and volunteers, conducting risk communications, coordinating with governmental and healthcare partners, and planning for the next phase of response."
