Dr. Rick Bright Recalls Being Told in January ‘We’re in Deep Sh*t’ Because N95 Medical Mask Supply Was ‘Decimated’

Government whistleblower Dr. Rick Bright told a House subcommittee that Michael Bowen, executive vice president of Prestige Ameritech, told him in a January email that the N95 medical mask supply was “decimated” and “we’re in deep sh*t.”

Bright was head of BARDA — a government agency that fights bioterrorism, infectious diseases and radiological attacks — for 10 years before he was suddenly reassigned to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Bright said he was reassigned to the NHS after he opposed widespread use of hydroxychloroquine, an untested malaria drug that President Donald Trump claimed — without evidence — was a “game-changer” for treating coronavirus, reports the Associated Press.
