Summary
"Physician and former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb asks: Has America's COVID-19 catastrophe taught us anything? ... [H]e shows how the coronavirus and its variants were able to trounce America's pandemic preparations, and he outlines the steps that must be taken to protect against the next outbreak. As the pandemic unfolded, Gottlieb was in regular contact with all the key players in Congress, the Trump administration, and the drug and diagnostic industries. He provides an inside account of how level after level of American government crumbled as the COVID-19 crisis advanced ... [and] argues we must fix our systems and prepare for a deadlier coronavirus variant, a flu pandemic, or whatever else nature--or those wishing us harm--may threaten us with. Gottlieb outlines policies and investments that are essential to prepare the United States and the world for future threats"--
