Rick Bright, the recent director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) who filed a whistleblower complaint alleging he was forced out of his job, testified before the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health. Mr. Bright told lawmakers he believed his reassignment to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) was retaliation for his resistance to broadening the use of hydroxychloroquine without the proper safeguards in place. Mr. Bright criticized the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus pandemic, saying the country lacked a coordinated strategy. “Without better planning, 2020 could be the darkest winter in modern history,” he warned. The former BARDA director also said his warnings about the lack of personal protective equipment in the strategic national stockpile went unheeded. close
