High Level “Biodefense” Govt Agency Quietly Created For The Event Of A Pandemic
A couple weeks ago, it was revealed that the US government is currently focusing on biological warfare and supposedly, the threat that some weaponized disease, bacteria, or virus could pose to the country.
A whole new, cabinet level (high level) government agency has just been created: a “steering committee” that directs the HHS, Department of Health and Human Services, to “take the coordinating lead” pertaining to this issue, according to one article.
The article continues, “Some experts are praising the broad scope of the strategy, new elements that it covers, and the high-level attention and oversight built into the plan.”
The White House press briefing that describes this plan notes that this government agency will work very closely with the existing Department of Homeland Security and other agencies, connecting them more, which will surely make the government’s power differential against the people more of a scary thing.
“The biodefense National Security Presidential Memorandum names the Secretary of Health and Human Services, Alex Azar, as the Federal lead for biodefense and establishes a Cabinet-level Biodefense Steering Committee,” the press release says.
President Trump spoke on the biological warfare agency, saying:
“Taken together, they represent a new direction in the Nation’s defense against biological threats,”referring to the steps being taken with the new agency. “They have great potential to disrupt the economy, exact a toll on human life, and tear at the very fabric of society,” he said, speaking on biological warfare threats. “My Administration will take steps to improve our understanding of the risks posed by biological threats and to respond to them effectively and efficiently.”
