A report from the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) in a late 2019 ranked the United States at the best-prepared country to handle a pandemic.
This news surfaces as Democrats and never Trumpers are criticizing the Trump administration for its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Fox News reported how this analysis clashes with Trump’s critics view of the government’s response to the coronavirus:
“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,” John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health, which works with the federal government to improve response to public health threats, said in the Fox News report.
“Democrats have charged that Trump decimated the nation’s public health leadership, but Auerbach said CDC’s top scientific ranks have remained stable during the past three years,” Fox News reported.
