Author, Scott Gottlieb, Book Talk @ Westport Library
October 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On Monday, October 4, Scott Gottlieb speaks with Alysin Camerota on stage about his book, Uncontrolled Spread: Why Covid-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic. Don’t miss the former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration! https://westportlibrary.org/event/scott-gottlieb-uncontrolled-spread/
Scott Gottlieb, MD will discuss how COVID-19 was too much for the American pandemic preparations and what steps need to be taken to combat the next outbreak with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota. As the pandemic unfolded, Gottlieb was in regular contact with all the key players in Congress, the Trump administration, and the drug and diagnostic industries. He provides an inside account of how level after level of American government crumbled as the COVID-19 crisis advanced. A system-wide failure across government institutions left the nation blind to the threat, and unable to mount an effective response.
Uncontrolled Spread: Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic argues we must fix our systems and prepare for a deadlier coronavirus variant, a flu pandemic, or whatever else nature may threaten us with. Gottlieb outlines policies and investments that are essential to prepare the United States and the world for future threats.
