Internal Report: Homeland Security Fails Adequately Prepare for Potential Pandemics

By Steve Neavling

Although Homeland Security has received $47 million to prepare for potential pandemics, federal authorities are far from ready and properly trained, according to a federal audit, the Washington Post reports.

The Homeland Security inspector general found numerous problems, including the imminent expiration of antiviral drugs and a failure to find personal protective gear.

“A severe influenza pandemic presents a tremendous challenge, which may affect millions of Americans, cause significant illnesses and fatalities, and substantially disrupt our economic and social stability,” the report said. “It is DHS’s responsibility to ensure it is adequately prepared to continue critical operations in the event of a pandemic.”

The audit found that 81% of the department’s antiviral drugs are set to expire next year.
