Thank you for taking the time to share with us Peter..

With the current Trump administration here in the US, they neither have had or currently have any interest in preparation of this or any other outbreak.  There have been both personnel and budget cuts made by the Trump administration over the past three years.

There is no one in the White House tasked specifically to oversee a coordinated government-wide response in the event of a pandemic, since the post of senior director for global health security and biothreats on the national security council (NSC) was eliminated last May. Funding has also been cut drastically to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In its 2020 budget the Trump administration proposed a further 10% cut in CDC funding, equivalent to $750m. It zeroed out funding for epidemiology and laboratory capacity at state and local levels.

Funding will also dry up this year for a tiered epidemic response within the US. The system was set up in the aftermath of the Ebola scare, and involved identifying patients infected by “special pathogens” in frontline hospitals and their transfer up a chain of specially equipped regional hospitals where they could be safely treated.
