USA Giving Up?
“It really does feel like the U.S. has given up,” said Siouxsie Wiles, an infectious-diseases specialist at the University of Auckland in New Zealand — a country that has confirmed only three new cases over the past three weeks and where citizens have now largely returned to their pre-coronavirus routines.
“I can’t imagine what it must be like having to go to work knowing it’s unsafe. It’s hard to see how this ends. There are just going to be more and more people infected, and more and more deaths. It’s heartbreaking.”
That price we paid during the lockdowns - in livelihoods destroyed, in collective psychological injury, in collateral health damage from non-COVID treatments postponed - makes the current apparent lack of any centralized strategy all the more galling. https://t.co/BiNtN8hG4n— Daniel Liebman MD MBA (@D_Liebman) June 14, 2020
It's as if 3 or 4 full Boeing 737s or Airbus A320s were crashing every day, killing everyone on board, in the US. There's still not a vaccine. But bc the state & business don't wanna pay anymore, they're like, "Don't mind many daily plane crash-fulls of death!" https://t.co/KMHqIn7386— Dr. Steven W. Thrasher (@thrasherxy) June 12, 2020
My mask protects you, your mask protects me.
The evidence is overwhelmingly clear: wear a mask.
