Link: Biden aims to address ‘immediate supply shortfalls’ left behind by Trump

Some of Mr. Biden’s advisers said they were stunned by the vaccination plan — or the lack of one — that it inherited from the Trump administration, and said the Trump team failed to share crucial information about supplies and vaccine availability.

“What we’re inheriting is so much worse than we could have imagined,” Jeff Zients, the new White House Covid-19 response coordinator, said.

I don’t think there is much that he can do immediately with vaccine shortages, but he can improve other supplies like N95 masks and PPE. We still need that stuff too.
