The Association of American Medical Colleges, representing all 155 accredited medical schools and 400 teaching hospitals and health systems in the U.S.,  issued a "road map" for Covid-19 recovery. “If the nation does not change its course – and soon – deaths in the United States could be well into the multiple hundreds of thousands,” it warns.

No. 1 remedying shortages: “Laboratory supplies (e.g., reagents, transport media, plastic trays, sample vials, swabs for testing) are a critical national need. "

The Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security released a report with 10 recommendations. “Unlike many countries in the world, the United States is not currently on course to get control of this epidemic. It’s time to reset,” states the report. Recommendations include: bolstering PPE and testing supply chains and, where epidemic numbers are worst, close higher risk activities and settings and reinstate stay-at-home orders.
