The country’s top infectious disease specialist, Dr. Anthony Fauci will examine the response of the coronovirus and the Trump administration before a special selection committee of the House of Representatives on Friday morning.
Fauci testified a month ago about a possible school reunion and Friday’s hearing comes days after the United States passed 150,000 coronovirus deaths and many states are struggling with the number of cases.
The House Select Subcommittee on the Coronovirus Crisis was established in late April by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and chaired by Rep. James Clyb, DSC. California’s Democrats are members of the Maxine Waters committee as well as ranking members Steve Scalise, R-La and Jim Jordan, R-Ohio.
The committee examines the efficiency of coronovirus-related spending and preparedness and response to the outbreak, according to its website.

According to The New York Times, “an urgent plan for coronovirus is needed,” the title hearing will likely focus on school reunification, testing and a possible vaccine. They will also talk about futures challenges.
If their prepared testimony states that if COVID-19 and flu activity occur at the same time, this could place a huge burden on the health care system.
The Trump administration at first refused to allow Fauci to testify before the committee, and the president and Fauci occasionally disagreed.
“The House is a setup,” Trump told reporters in May. “The House is a swarm of Trump heaters. They hate every Trump on the committee. The same old stuff. They obviously, want to make our situation a failure, which means death.”
