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.
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
