WH says Bright hasn't been paying attention

White House Press Secretarty Kayleigh McEnany accused virologist-turned-whistleblower Dr. Rick Bright of "not paying attention" to the Trump administration's response to COVID-19 after he claimed that there was no coordinated response to the pandemic.

McEnany told Fox News: "We actually put into place a pandemic preparedness document with recommendations long before the pandemic ever came. It sounds like he hasn’t been paying attention when he suggests that Americans should social distance and wash their hands. These are all things we’ve said millions of times." She went on to add that President Donald Trump helped deliver 90 million N95 respirators and numerous other pieces of personal protective equipment (PPE).

Speaking in Congress, Dr. Bright stated that he had warned the Department of Health and Human Services about low stockpiles of PPE, but nothing was done about it.
