Senator Lamar Alexander: “Will There Be Enough COVID-19 Tests So We Can Watch Some Football This Fall, Or Basketball This Winter?”

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – At a Senate hearing this past week on COVID-19 Coronavirus, U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) asked National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins whether “In the midst of all this depressing news about the virus, will there be enough tests so we can watch some football this fall, or basketball this winter?”

Alexander said the answer may depend upon Dr. Collins’ project to find new ways to produce tens of millions of quick, reliable diagnostic tests. 

Dr. Collins is heading an effort, nicknamed the “shark tank,” to accelerate development of new tests to determine whether an individual has COVID-19 Coronavirus.

Chairman Lamar Alexander says “Stakes are Too High” for Pro-Trump, Anti-Trump Mask Debate to Continue

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said “the stakes are too high,” for the political debate around wearing masks to continue.

“Unfortunately this simple lifesaving practice has become part of a political debate that says: If you’re for Donald Trump, you don’t wear a mask. If you’re against Trump, you do,” Alexander said. “That is why I have suggested the president should occasionally wear a mask even though there are not many occasions when it is necessary for him to do so. The president has millions of admirers. They would follow his lead.”

Lamar Alexander: Tennessee students need to return in the Fall

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, I chaired a hearing in the Senate health committee with key administration officials and COVID-19 task force members to explore what federal, state and local governments need to do to get Americans back work and back to school. You can read more about that hearing below. 

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced Tennessee will receive more than $155 million to support COVID-19 Coronavirus testing and contact tracing across the state. Tennessee has done more testing than most states, but even more testing is key to ensuring folks are safe as they go back to work and back to school.
