Obama Damned, Failed To Replenish CDC National Stockpile Of Mask.
Obama administration neglected to replenish the CDC national stockpile of masks after dipping into it several times during his tenure.
USA today factchecked an article from the dailywire:
During the Barack Obama government, the national stockpile was seriously taxed as the administration addressed multiple crises over eight years.
“75% of N95 respirators and 25% of face masks contained in the CDC’s Strategic National Stockpile (∼100 million products) were deployed for use in health care settings over the course of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic response,” according to a 2017 study in the journal Health Security.
Also according to NIH, the stockpile’s resources were also used during hurricanes Alex, Irene, Isaac and Sandy. Flooding in 2010 in North Dakota also called for stockpile funds to be deployed .
The 2014 outbreaks of the ebola virus and botulism, as well as the 2016 outbreak of the zika virus, continued to significantly tax the stockpile with no serious effort from the Obama administration to replenish the fund.

Confirmation that its true
We rate this claim TRUE because it is supported by our research. There is no indication that the Obama administration took significant steps to replenish the supply of N95 masks in the Strategic National Stockpile after it was depleted from repeated crises.
Calls for action came from experts at the time concerned for the country’s ability to respond to future serious pandemics. Such recommendations were, for whatever reason, not heeded.
