CITY OF WASHINGTON, D.C.(March 17, 2021)—National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky will testify with other federal officials on the COVID-19 response Wednesday.

Earlier in March federal health officials testified before the Senate Health Committee regarding response efforts to the coronavirus outbreak. Questions focused on the availability of test kits nationwide, the timeline for possible treatment options and vaccines, and effective protection against catching or spreading the virus. FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn told members that labs should have the ability to conduct up to 1 million tests by the end of that week, but several members on the committee expressed concerns with that timeline.
