Stefanik Named to China Task Force

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, NY-21, has been named to Leader Kevin McCarthy’s China Task Force, aimed at working on policies to hold China accountable for its coverup of the initial spread of COVID-19, which originated in Wuhan, according to a statement issued by Stefanik’s office. Stefanik is one of 15 members of Congress on the Task Force. 

“The Communist Party of China intentionally withheld critical information on the spread of COVID-19 that could have saved thousands of lives,” said Stefanik, in a statement. “To this day, China continues to spread misinformation regarding this health crisis. The Communist Chinese Government must be held accountable. I appreciate Leader McCarthy naming me to the China Task Force and am looking forward to getting
to work.”
