Puerto Rico hurricane damage could lead to drug shortages

Puerto Rico hurricane damage could lead to drug shortages

"We know from decades of experience that children are the most affected in emergencies and disasters, and their needs often go awry", Casey Harrity, the team leader at Save the Children in Puerto Rico, said in a statement. "The people here are relying on us and we are here for them throughout the process of rebuilding the island".

Begnaud, who has reported extensively on the local and federal response in the wake of the deadly hurricane, reports that USA government and local officials say that water still needs to be boiled in Puerto Rico where there is water. Our top priority is the people of Puerto Rico. He also called her pleas for help "political noise".

In a tweet sent out Sunday evening, President Donald Trump claimed that, "nobody could have done what [he'd] done for #PuertoRico with so little appreciation".

One major problem, Evangelista pointed out, is that while help has been arriving in Mexico City, the surrounding areas that also experienced mass devastation from the natural disaster have not received almost enough aid. Kaine will press the Administration to follow through on that commitment to additional, critical aid to Puerto Rico and will make the case to his colleagues in Congress to support it.

Puerto Rico faces much damage after Hurricane Maria made landfall last month, leaving much of the island without power or other essential supplies.

"I was having fun", Trump said of his four-hour visit to San Juan, Puerto Rico's capital, last Tuesday. In the aftermath, Trump was accused of paying more attention to political protests taking place in the National Football League than he has to the more than 3 million Americans grappling with Hurricane Maria's effects.

Mike Dent, director of pharmacy finance at the PSNC, said: "There are many factors influencing the United Kingdom medicines market at present and PSNC's focus is on ensuring that pharmacy contractors can access the medicines their patients need and that they are reimbursed correctly".

"There has been great collaboration with the [Department of Defense], with the federal government, with the state governments", Rossello said on MSNBC Monday. The a Category 4 storm wiped out the island's power grid, flooded roads, crippled communications systems and created shortages of food, water and other supplies, for Puerto Rico's 3.4 million residents.

Church services resumed in Caonillas, Puerto Rico. "As a result, in addition to the immediate humanitarian crisis, Puerto Rico is on the verge of a massive liquidity crisis that will intensify in the immediate future". "While the full scope of the devastation is not yet known, one thing is for certain - with quick and decisive action granted through the authorities in the DPA, the potential devastation on Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands may be mitigated". Menendez and Booker also led a request for an appropriations bill that would help these American citizens rebuild and provide them the resources needed to restore the islands back to normality.
