FRONTLINE "America's Medical Supply Crisis"
In The Moment … October 5, 2020 Show 916 Hour 2
Why were American nurses and health care workers so desperate for adequate protective equipment in the early days, months even, of a global pandemic? Why did federal leaders ignore the warning signs, fail to restock the national strategic stockpile? Why are we still experiencing shortages of test equipment and the supplies necessary to distribute a vaccine?
A new investigative documentary from FRONTLINE, The Associated Press, and the Global Reporting Centre explores "America's Medical Supply Crisis." The film debuts Tuesday, October 6 on SDPB-TV, at PBS.org/frontline, on the PBS Video App and on YouTube.
