Dear Friends,

Tomorrow, the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health will be examining a week-old whistleblower complaint before a proper investigation. This week, I sent several letters to Subcommittee Chair Eshoo requesting additional hearings on relevant information surrounding this pandemic.

National Update:
The Trump Administration announced Operation Warp Speed, an initiative to remove every unnecessary barrier in order to bring COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics to Americans as fast as possible.

National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis S. Collins and National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities Director Dr. Eliseo Perez-Stable discuss in a video COVID-19 and health disparities.

Texas Update:
In Tarrant County, one of the state’s pop-up mobile testing sites will be set up this weekend.

Until next time, this is your doctor's note.
Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D.
