    Default Federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted under Obama and never restocked

    AS ALWAYS, THE LIE-O-CRATS ARE BUSY TRYING TO BLAME EVERYONE ELSE FOR THEIR FUCKUPS:





    Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg News: Federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted under Obama and never restocked



    The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times.


    The Trump administration is scrambling to replenish a stockpile of protective medical gear for healthcare workers and patients as the coronavirus sweeps across the nation. N95 respirator masks are one of the most needed medical supplies amid the outbreak.

    The George W. Bush administration published the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza plan in 2005, which called on the federal government to distribute medical supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile governed by the Health and Human Services Department in the event of an outbreak.

    In 2009, the H1N1 outbreak hit the United States, leading to 274,304 hospitalizations, 12,469 deaths, and a depletion of N95 respirator masks.

    A federally backed task force and a safety equipment organization both recommended to the Obama administration that the stockpile be replenished with the 100 million masks used after the H1N1 outbreak.

    Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, said that advice was never heeded.

    “Our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown,” he said.

    HHS Secretary Alex Azar reported last month that only 12 million N95 masks were available in the stockpile, “a tiny fraction of the 3.5 billion masks one of Azar’s deputies later testified the nation’s healthcare system would need,” the Los Angeles Times noted.

    Bloomberg News reported similar findings last week, noting, "After the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009, which triggered a nationwide shortage of masks and caused a 2- to 3-year backlog [of] orders for the N95 variety, the stockpile distributed about three-quarters of its inventory and didn’t build back the supply.”

    Trump has had 3 1/2 year to replenish any stock of masks, but he had done nothing. You have confirmed just how inept this administration is.

    Obama hasn't been in office for over 3 years. This administration has done nothing in those years.

    True, but the fact remains it wasn’t replenished and budget constraints were the reason. The administration chose to spend the budget on other things. The Trump administration went further and greatly crippled the agencies whose job was to ready us for pandemics. It appears no administration has taken the threat of pandemic as seriously as they should, to the public detriment. I hope, going forward that this is corrected.

    Wrong...

    OJ was found guilty in civil court.

    “Exoneration”...the action of officially absolving someone from blame; vindication.

    President Trump was officially absolved from blame...and he was vindicated, Snowflake.
