Q: COVID-19 PANDEMIC


 

 

Support workers and small businesses

A: Hickenlooper is focused supporting the workers and small businesses that are the backbone of the economy. He said he will focus on creating supply chains to get supplies to people who need it, including businesses. He believes the government should pay for coronavirus tests.

 

 

 

Need to address broader issues

A: He supports efforts to accelerate the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. But he says the pandemic demonstrates a need for “Medicare for All” because everyone’s health is interconnected. He suggested stronger action to address climate change is important, too, because outbreaks are more likely to occur and spread in warming global temperatures.
