White House COVID-19 Task force

The day is October 1st, 2020. After months of an uphill battle against the novel Covid-19 disease, cases in the United States have managed to stabilize; Americans’ lives have inched back towards the normal. The war against Covid, however, is far from victorious. With a reopened economy, newly resumed schools and universities, and a reinstatement of international travel, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention records an uptake in outbreaks around the country. Medical experts offer stark warnings of second waves, new deaths, and a lack of preparedness. Concerns are reignited surrounding issues such as medical supplies and equipment, state and federal powers, vaccine controversies, and many more. The White House Coronavirus Task Force, in charge of coordinating the United States’ Federal response, is left with one task: Abating another deadly wave.
