Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Having read Playbook for Early Response to High-Consequence Emerging Infectious Disease Threats and Biological Incidents, produced by that administration, I'd say the so-called Pandemic Response Team has little to nothing do with coordination of domestic public health S/D. This document is almost exclusively concerned with "host country" CONTAINMENT -- executive branch command structure, foreign relations, and intelligence detail, or "fighting over there."

It follows--not only from that document, but CDC actual, miserable performance at home and abroad over prior decade--nothing lost, nothing gained from institutional knowledge in the current administration.

One might expect more, but that's not reasonable in points of fact (incidentally or historicallyy).
