John Polowczyk, supply chain task force lead at the Federal Emergency Management Agency, speaks during a coronavirus task force briefing at the White House in Washington. U.S. officials are invoking a rarely used provision of American law that would shield companies from antitrust regulations to help the country from again running out of medical supplies in a pandemic. Polowczyk, who was appointed to run a White House supply chain task force in response to the outbreak, told reporters last week that the government is expanding the emergency stockpile of critical supplies and medicines managed by the Department of Health and Human Services.
