Nearly 10 million Americans have lost their jobs in just the past few weeks while hundreds of millions more are stranded inside worried about the health of their loved ones and how they will continue putting food on the table.
As we all know, COVID-19 is an extraordinarily complex and fast-moving crisis. The public health of the country is at stake and critical interventions are needed. This pandemic has also spawned a multi-faceted economic catastrophe that is wreaking havoc across our communities.
