Ricky Bright's testimony to Congress shows that he blamed the administration for ignoring critical points and failure to take precautionary measures.
Rick also alleged that the U.S. was not prepared to tackle the pandemic in the upcoming winter and said HHS leadership was dismissive about his dire predictions about the outbreak. He also faced hostility and marginalization from HHS officials. He outlined that health experts should take the lead to prevent dire consequences. He said they were not as prepared as they should have been and missed early warning signals. He also urged that the leaders must lead by modelling the behaviour.
