(Washington, DC) – Today, U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) questioned top U.S. health officials at a Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor Health and Human Services and Education on the U.S. response to the Zika virus. Shaheen asked Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases about the threat of Zika to Americans and how their departments plan to combat the virus.
