Statement from C19 Coalition on President Trump's COVID-19 Diagnosis
The C19 Coalition would like to wish the President, First Lady, White House staff, and the thousands of people inflicted every day with COVID-19 a swift and full recovery.
Overnight, the C19 Coalition has seen a considerable spike in visits to its website and social channels. The C19 Coalition hopes this is an opportunity to reemphasize this pandemic is serious and respects no one. Because of this, it’s important to continue to protect ourselves and others from COVID-19’s threat through social distancing, the use of masks and other PPE. It’s also important to educate oneself of this virus through credible sources. The C19 Coalition considers the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and COVID-19 Facts to be reliable.
The C19 Coalition’s partners have delivered more than 400 million units of PPE since March primarily to frontline workers, educators, students and communities. While an impact has been made, there’s still a long way to go, especially in disproportionately impacted communities around the country.
To start, the C19 Coalition has created a program called Adopt A School to help serve underfunded school districts, educators and students in need of PPE.
The C19 Coalition is also focused on colleges serving Black (HBCU), Latinx (HSI) and Indigenous (TCU) student populations that are in urgent need of PPE, testing, and support. The C19 Coalition is developing “Sunday Suppers” and other programs to serve them.
Finally, C19 Coalition is also looking to help deliver PPE to underserved sectors such as small businesses, farmers, and private medical practices.
C19 Coalition is committed to working with best in class partners and help so that we can all get through this crisis together.
The C19 Coalition is a non-profit, cross-sector group of organizations, companies, states, and philanthropists working to address PPE shortages across the country.
