Stakeholder: The US Federal Government: Executive Branch 

Trump Visits the CDC in Atlanta After Earlier Canceling the Trip Over Coronavirus Fears March 6th, 2020


"The federal government has failed in its fundamental constitutional duty: to “provide for the common defense.” Despite extensive planning by presidential administrations of both parties, when a pandemic finally hit, authorities at all levels were poorly organized and ill prepared. In the absence of clearly defined international, federal, state, and local roles, officials have improvised tactics in search of a strategy, all too often conflicting with one another."

John J. Farmer, Jr.
