Larson Statement on the Coronavirus
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement as the Coronavirus continues to spread.
“There is no reason for Americans to panic. We must come together as a nation to address this potential pandemic. I call on President Trump to appoint a head liaison to lead this effort as President Obama did when the Ebola virus first surfaced. This should be an interagency effort and everyone must pull together and cooperate to work first to get a diagnosis system in place and then a treatment system. Pulling together to address oncoming issues is what Americans do,” said Larson. “Additionally, I will be pursuing legislative proposals to examine the best way to address and streamline our public health response system.”
