Federal Coronavirus Updates

  • Department of Health and Human Services
    • The federal official overseeing coronavirus testing efforts pushed back against reports the federal government is poised to stop providing federal aid to testing sites in some hard-hit states, including Texas, where new cases have spiked sharply in recent weeks. Brett Giroir, the assistant secretary for health in the Department of Health and Human Services, wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night that the government has expanded from 41 testing sites to more than 600 in 48 states and the District of Columbia. “In addition, 93 percent of all community health centers offer COVID-19 testing — at thousands of locations,” he wrote, adding that the HHS will work to increase testing capacity and to make it accessible to underserved communities. Giroir also testified before a House committee Tuesday along with top federal infectious-disease expert Dr. Anthony S. Fauci; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield; and Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn. All four officials denied they had ever been directed to reduce testing after Trump told rally goers in Tulsa that he had charged officials to “slow the testing down.”
  • International Monetary Fund
    • The International Monetary Fund on Wednesday painted a bleak portrait of the global economy, saying the coronavirus pandemic has caused more widespread damage than expected and will be followed by a sluggish recovery. The global economy will shrink this year by 4.9 percent, worse than the 3 percent decline predicted in April, the IMF said. No major economy is escaping the pandemic. The U.S. economy, the world’s largest, is expected to shrink this year by 8 percent. Countries that use the single European currency are headed for a decline of more than 10 percent while Japanese output will fall by 5.8 percent, the IMF said. The Chinese economy, suffering the twin ravages of the pandemic and the trade war with the U.S, is projected to eke out just a 1 percent gain — its worst performance in several decades. Fund officials blamed the darker forecast on the effects of social distancing; scarring to global production capacity from the lockdown of activity; and the productivity cost of new safety and hygiene rules. Government crisis-fighting efforts — including $11 trillion in spending and tax cuts — have kept the economic collapse from worsening, the fund said. Earlier this month, Kristalina Georgieva, the fund’s managing director, called the pandemic recession “a crisis like no other” and said that by the end of this year, an unprecedented 170 countries would see average individual incomes fall.
