GOP presidential hopefuls take renewed aim at efforts to combat covid


GOP presidential hopefuls have proposed a range of ideas for how to best combat the coronavirus pandemic. Some of the major proposals include cutting government red tape to expedite the approval of vaccines and drug therapies, allowing people freedom to make individual decisions about mask-wearing and social distancing, pursuing more aggressive contact tracing and testing measures, revamping capacity for vaccine distribution, investing in new technology to boost screening and treatment, and expanding access to telemedicine. Additionally, this group of candidates generally agrees that the government should provide more resources to ensure that the necessary supplies are available to treat COVID-19. Furthermore, they advocate for holding China accountable for its role in the spread of the virus and urge an end to relying on foreign nations for medical supplies.
