“As we mark the one-year anniversary of the pandemic declaration, the personal sacrifices and losses endured by millions in the United States and globally remind us that we are joined by our common humanity. This past year has proven that public health measures, science and effective communication are essential for safety and survival and will be essential to build back healthier and more prosperous societies. The more we work together, united in our fight against this virus and global health threats, the safer and healthier we will all be.”
