The Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis held a virtual hearing on protecting frontline and essential workers during the pandemic. The subcommittee, led by Represenatives James Clyburn (D-SC) and Steve Scalise (R-LA), heard testimony from two physicians, a registered nurse, an EMS technician, a city bus driver, a custodian, a restaurant group partner, and the mother of a grocery store worker who died from COVID-19 complications. The witnesses talked about their working conditions and called on the federal government to provide more help with personal protective equipment, among other issues. Subcommittee Democrats accused the Trump administration of not responding quickly and effectively in securing personal protective equipment and other critical supplies. Many Republicans on the subcommittee defended the administration’s response and blamed China for a lack of transparency and for hoarding personal protective equipment in the early months of the pandemic. close
