Tim Manning is the former deputy administrator for protection and national preparedness at FEMA.
Manning promises to, in part, build manufacturing plants here in the United States to produce a billion nitrile gloves (a month?). I'm thinking that might really be a year. A billion is a lot of gloves! But, there are other critical supply items needed by vaccine makers including, of course, test kits, the bane of our national COVID-19 response as a nation.
