Marsha Blackburn Report: Combating the Coronavirus

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The President’s early decision to increase screening at airports and borders and ban non-U.S. citizens from China from entering the country has helped prevent the coronavirus from spreading. This week, the President appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead our response effort to the outbreak. My office has been in touch with the Tennessee Department of Health, which will be providing regular updates for Tennesseans. 

Recent reforms enacted by Congress, which improved federal, state, and local preparedness and response programs, have helped the United States achieve top-ranked status as the country best prepared to deal with a potential pandemic.

In 2019, another Knoxville resident, Debbie Burgess, was killed in a hit and run accident caused by an illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history. These tragedies are not limited to Tennessee, which is why I introduced legislation that will make our communities safer.
