You are all this country’s A-Team when it comes to medical research, medical innovation and public health, along with our government’s other outstanding institutions including FDA, CDC and the other HHS agencies.
I am a bit surprised by this post – I had assumed the Secretary of Health and Human Services would have visited this facility many times already – for those who do not know, NIH is just a few miles north of DC.
I believe Secretary Becerra’s primary task should be to put in place a pandemic response which mostly operates outside any errors which those in power may make – a effective default plan, which I believe would include rapid testing of any proposed vaccines.
