American BioDefense Institute Launches ReOpen America Strategy in Arizona
A Layered Bio-Hygiene Approach for Combatting The Socio-Economic Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the U.S.
PRESCOTT, Ariz., September 25, 2020 (Newswire.com) - American BioDefense Institute (A.B.I.) announced today the launch of its ReOpen America campaign, a bipartisan effort to reopen America’s economy, academia, and other elements of U.S. society. The campaign kicked off in Arizona’s 4th Congressional District, a region led by biodefense maverick and U.S. congressman Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (R-Ariz).
Since the onset of the pandemic, A.B.I. has joined forces with several members of Congress, state governors, and other federal and local government officials to develop a much-needed strategy for addressing the “new normal” that was brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Their goal was to develop practical options for mitigating the pandemic’s adverse effect on American society and the economy as a whole.
“The ReOpen America campaign is modeled after DARPA’s P3 Firebreak strategy for combatting pandemics,” said James Mayo, a biosecurity expert, and A.B.I. Fellow. “Our layered approach to a user-friendly, bio-hygienic, strategy for minimizing the impact of this and future pandemics.”
Several A.B.I. Fellows attended or sponsored Arizona’s 4th district ReOpen strategy, including Nelly Nastase, author of “Fogging: A Powerful Disinfecting Layer for Biohygiene?” and USA Ambassador for disinfecting fogger manufacturer Cube Atomizers; James Mayo, C.E.O. of S.O.S. Hydration and co-author of “Rehydration Solutions: Use During The COVID-19 Pandemic”; and A.B.I. contributor Christos Daskalakis, C.E.O. of M.F.S. Trade School.
The A.B.I. fellows and Congressman Gosar made several stops around Arizona’s 4th district, visiting Chief Dan Doyle, Lake Havasu City Police Department of Haven of Lake Havasu; Chief Dennis Light of Prescott Fire Station; Maggie Greenwood, executive director of Alta Vista retirement community, and the Prescott location of the US Forest Services.
During the tour, Prescott Mayor Billie Orr reiterated, “Here in Prescott, leadership prides itself in a unique opportunity to lead from the front lines and the trenches.” Congressman Gosar continued hitting home the long term biohygiene message that, “There is no silver bullet solution to solving this pandemic, but we need a Firebreak to get us through this critical time until a viable and tested vaccine can be introduced.”
A.B.I. plans to organize similar events in states around the country as part of A.B.I.’s broader efforts to partner with companies with unique solutions that improve the health, lives, and safety of Americans. A.B.I.’s mission is to minimize the negative impact of the Coronavirus pandemic while teaching Americans a newer and more evolved standard for healthy living during and after the COVID 19 outbreak.
