'We could have done better' — Ousted federal vaccine scientist on response to coronavirus

"I believe we could have done better," Rick Bright said testifying before the House Committee on Energy and Commerce when asked by Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-California) if the federal response to the coronavirus pandemic has been a failure. Bright was removed as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority after resisting efforts to increase access to hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug promoted by Donald Trump as a possible treatment for Covid-19.
