January 26, 2020 ... Schumer sounded the alarm

Schumer calls on feds to declare coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency

January 26, 2020 | 4:20pm

Sen. Chuck Schumer on Sunday urged federal officials to declare coronavirus a public health emergency in the US, so millions more in funds could be made available to fight the deadly bug.

The senator appealed to the Department of Health and Human Services to make the declaration in order for the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention to access $85 million that is allocated to fight infectious disease.

“Should the outbreak get worse they’re going to need immediate access to critical federal funds that at present they can’t access,” Schumer told reporters at his Manhattan office.

He said health officials will then be able to act quickly should the flu-like virus continue to spread in the country.


Someday ... Americans will realize the republicans are truly an evil infestation.

4. Thank you ...

I am sick of them saying that no one knew ...

I vacillate between anger and horror that anyone continues to even attempt to defend this maladminstration.
