COVID-19 Information and Guidance

Medical military reinforcements battle Covid-19 surge in Houston

"The acceleration of the death rate could go up higher as hospital staff get overwhelmed ... This is all a consequence of transmission out of control," health policy fellow Peter Hotez said of the "untenable" situation in Houston and beyond.

"The bigger issue is that there is no plan for the country," Hotez said. "The entire southern half of the country is in a health crisis. But the problem is that we're not getting any federal guidance or leadership. Without us having a national roadmap, it's hard to do the details. I point fingers at the lack of coherent federal response."
