In late April, America surpassed 1 million confirmed cases of COVID-19. But our health care workers don't have enough of the equipment that they need to protect themselves and care for their patients.
To make matters worse, rather than coordinating the supply chain and getting materials directly to areas in need, the federal government is funneling supplies to private companies. And in some cases, suppliers are charging outrageous prices as states, local governments and hospitals are forced to bid against each other over equipment.
We're calling on Congress to immediately pass the Medical Supply Transparency and Delivery Act, which would establish a central, transparent system for procuring and distributing critical medical supplies directly to impacted areas. Add your name today.
