If Wishes Were Horses: Beggars Would Ride


White House Coronavirus Task Force Says the U.S. Should Have Implemented a Stricter Lockdown

Health Editor’s Note: What is it they say about closing the barn door after the horse has already run away?  Of course the U.S. should have gone into lockdown after it was quite apparent that COVID-19 was so easily spread and could and would rapidly kill.  New Zealand locked down….22 COVID-19 deaths to date…none since May 11.  Micronesia, Samoa, Marshall Islands, Turkmenistan, Solomon Islands, Tonga, and a few others have no reported cases of coronavirus.  Many factors came into play which has kept the U.S. as the sad leader in cases and deaths. 

One for certain is that each state could make up its own rules…sorry, but this was a time when every state should have done everything they could to stop the spread of coronavirus.  Treating each state as a separate country (with all states having the same rules) would have gone a long way towards quarantining COVID-19 and stopping is rampant spread.  Not allowing air flights from other countries (not just China because Trump blamed them) without intense testing, quarantines of arrivals, as was done in other countries would have kept the influx of coronavirus into the nation. 

What the U.S. desperately needed were leaders (I am using this word facetiously) who believed in science and medicine and who listened to recommendations of epidemiologists, pandemic experts (no wait Trump had already (2018) cancelled the National Security Council directorate at the White House pandemic program charged with preparing for when, not if, another pandemic would hit the nation and of course it had, but we did not have those who would listen.

VT says to Dr. Deborah Brix (failed coronavirus task force coordinator) the ship has already sailed…..we are in this mess up to our necks and barely holding on. Save you wishes and sad laments because wishes will not contain coronavirus and keep people from dying…..Carol
