The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) needs to deploy $8.4 billion by 2021 to improve its ability to conduct studies related to the COVID-19 pandemic, security for clinical trials, and overall management of COVID-19.
If confirmed, this would be the CDC’s biggest expenditure more than the $8.7 billion invested in 2018, sources said.
CDC Director Robert Redfield this week notified an HHS senior agency that an additional $2.3 billion will be needed, according to two backgrounders in Mayau, Montana.
The sources said Redfield “promised to invest out $8.4 billion in CDC’s operations and capabilities over the next three months,” adding that some of this money was already available.
Redfield told reporters on March 4 that there was $8.4 billion available to improve CDC effectiveness while also providing resources needed to combat the pandemic.
“We have already gained all of the capacity required to effectively analyze, collect and disseminate data related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The challenges that we have are that we have large volumes of data, and so we need to continue to make that available,” he said.
Redfield was asked by reporters Thursday if there is money for infrastructure investments to increase frostbite testing capacity and expand capacity for infection-fighting tests at medical facilities.
“We also need to continue making sure that infection-control sites are built across greater geographic areas,” he said.
Redfield said he would continue making this public.
