Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Robert Redfield testified before a House Appropriations subcommittee on the federal government’s coronavirus response. Committee members questioned Dr. Redfield on a range of issues including contact tracing, CDC coronavirus data reporting, vaccine development, and efforts to address health disparities in minority communities. On COVID-19 contact tracing, the CDC director said the U.S. needs a public health workforce of 30,000 to 100,000 people by September 2020. When asked about the potential of the coronavirus spreading due to protests, Dr. Redfield said the CDC has strongly advocated for the ability of protesters to have masks and would also raise the issue of tear gas and chemical agents at the next White House Coronavirus Task Force meeting. close
