After a six-week delay from when the US had its first coronavirus case, America is finally starting to catch up to South Korea’s testing capacity. What went wrong inside the FDA, and why was our government so far behind?

Alec Stapp joined the show to walk us through the errors and misjudgments that resulted in America’s sluggish response. Digging into the bureaucratic red tape that hindered our preparedness, Stapp explains what the government should have done to prevent the total lockdown that we’re in today.

Alec Stapp is the director of technology policy at the Progressive Policy Institute. He has a master’s degree in economics from the George Mason University and a B.A. from the University of Arizona.
