“Ousted” Vaccine Experts Say The United States Is Facing “The Darkest Winter”

A former senior US health official told Congress that due to the coronavirus, the country may face “the darkest winter in modern history.”

Rick Bright led government agencies to try to develop a vaccine, but was removed from office last month.

He had previously stated that he was removed from office because of concerns about the treatment touted by President Donald Trump.

American leaders fired him as a “disgruntled” employee.

Mr. Bright also told the House of Representatives subcommittee on health that “the loss of life” was due to the government’s “inaction” at the outbreak.

He said he first talked about the shortage of medical equipment in January, which brought the issue to the “highest level” of the Ministry of Health and Human Services (HHS), but “no response.”

Among other developments in the United States:

What else did Mr. Bright say?
In his testimony, Bright warned that the US “window of opportunity” to deal with coronavirus is “closing.”

He said: “If we are based on science, we can’t improve our response now, and I worry that this pandemic will worsen and continue for a long time.”

“If there is no better plan, 2020 may be the darkest winter in modern history.”

Mr. Bright also told the subcommittee that in January of this year, he received an email from a medical-grade mask supplier that he “never will forget” and he warned of a serious shortage.
