China News Agency, Houston, August 6 US President trump said during his visit to Ohio on the 6th that he had signed an executive order requiring the federal government to purchase essential drugs and medical equipment made in the United States. The executive order will require the federal government to purchase all essential drugs and medical equipment from U.S. companies, according to consumer news and business channel. The executive order will also simplify the regulatory approval process faced by domestic pharmaceutical companies and keep drug prices low in the United States, so as to be competitive in the global market. Trump said, “as we have seen in this epidemic, the United States must produce the necessary equipment and drugs for itself,” and “we cannot rely on China and other countries.”. Earlier in the day, white house trade adviser Peter Navarro said, “if we learn anything from the new pandemic, it is dangerous that we rely too much on foreign countries for essential drugs, medical supplies, medical equipment, etc.” According to the Washington Post, the action is Trump’s latest executive order on drug manufacturing in the United States. Trump signed four executive orders at the end of July to keep U.S. drug prices at least equal to those overseas. The administrative order was issued at a time when the new outbreak was still spreading in the United States. According to the data released by Johns Hopkins University, as of 7:00 p.m. Eastern time on August 6, the total number of new crown confirmed cases in the United States has exceeded 4.87 million, and the death toll has exceeded 159000.
