An expert in the area of health law, Professor Efthimios Parasidis recently co-authored an op-ed in titled, “How Federal Dollars Can Incentivize a Stronger Response to Covid-19.”

“A year into the pandemic, Covid-19 continues to spread. In large part this is due to widespread failure to institute and enforce evidence-based public health measures, including protocols for testing, universal masking, distancing, and isolation and quarantine. The Biden administration issued an orderrequiring masking in all federal buildings, a testing program for federal employees, and masking on all forms of transportation. While these are smart, swift moves, more is required for the United States to be a world leader in pandemic response and prevention.”
