Despite warnings of a resurgence of Covid-19, Congress may not be willing to continue the fight. The White House may face difficult choices and tradeoffs in pandemic response.

  • Adam Cancryn, healthcare reporter for Politico Pro, said the White House is asking for $22.5 billion to continue the pandemic response, including ensuring availability of vaccines, antivirals and tests, but is facing opposition from congressional Republicans.
  • These members of Congress are not convinced the funding is necessary and want to understand how the trillions of dollars Congress already authorized were spent, explained Cancryn.
  • He said the Biden administration may have to ration vaccines and treatments later this year and is working on contingency plans.
