Baldwin calls for more PPE and testing supply production

Wisconsin U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin is renewing her call for more COVID-19 testing supplies to be produced. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, health officials are worried that the recent surge of cases nationwide could begin to cause issues with tests being done in a timely fashion. Baldwin is calling on the Trump administration to enact the Defense Production Act to help increase the amount of testing supplies, personal protective equipment, and medical equipment made for communities. She says not doing so has caused people to rely on a chaotic supply chain.

Baldwin says the Defense Production Act has worked well in developing a vaccine for COVID-19, but believes it should also be used to produce more masks, gloves, and testing supplies for employers who want to safely reopen.
