Tillis Has Delivered For North Carolina In Fight Against COVID-19

Since the beginning of this pandemic, Senator Tillis has been fighting to protect the physical and economic health of North Carolinians.

Some highlights from Senator Tillis’ COVID-19 response:

Delivering Tens of Billions to North Carolina to Save Jobs and Support Hospitals, Doctors, and Nurses on the Frontlines 

 Leading on Expanding Testing for North Carolinians 

Leading on Developing a Safe and Effective Vaccine for Americans 

  •   Tillis supported the early effort to jumpstart Operation Warp Speed to utilize federal money for an all-hands-on-deck effort to develop a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine.
  •   Tillis then introduced the America First Vaccine Act to ensure that pharmaceutical companies that received taxpayer funding through Operation Warp Speed provide the vaccine to Americans before sending it to other countries.

Holding China Accountable to Protect the Health and Safety of North Carolinians

  • Tillis has said China was not forthcoming about COVID-19 and it cost us valuable time.
  • That is why he released an 18-point plan to hold China accountable by ending economic dependency on China, formally investigating Chinese communist leaders, sanctioning the Chinese government and expanding the United States military presence in Asia.
  • Tillis also joined other lawmakers in introducing a bill that allows Americans who have been harmed by COVID-19 to sue the Chinese government for their role in spreading the virus.

Connecting with North Carolinians

  Nearly 500,000 North Carolinians have participated in Tillis’  telephone town halls and he has answered over 600 constituent questions.

Senator Tillis has been clear that protecting the safety and well-being of North Carolinians is his number one priority during this pandemic, which is why he’s worked across the aisle to provide critical resources for the people of this state.
