FAH Leader Reacts to President Biden’s National COVID Strategy

January 21, 2021 | Chip Kahn

Category: Statement

WASHINGTON - FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement regarding President Biden’s National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness:

“Today the President made it clear we are at war with COVID-19. This is the White House leadership necessary to turn the tables on the pandemic.

“President Biden aptly recognizes that to regain our nation’s health - both physical and economic - will require Americans grasp the critical importance of masking up, as well as the need for the federal government to turn to vaccine dispensing at warp speed.

“He is also rightly focused on increasing the inventory of necessary PPE, and other important supplies, through the implementation of the Defense Production Act (DPA). The use of DPA must be focused on providing what has not been available, while allowing the supply chain that is working to do its job.

“As the President says, COVID-19 will shed more darkness, but it can be defeated with the purposeful effort of millions of Americans over the next 100 days.”
