This appalling description of a once mighty country’s best effort is pathetic and somewhat medieval— like something from “A Journal of the Plague Year (Defoe 1722). Imagine the number of new cases not only just imported but also created because of ignorance, lack of planning and miserable implementation.
Elections have consequences.
Medicynical note: Policy without planning, that’s the motto of the Trumpist response to the covid-19 epidemic. Trump has a hunch, denies, delays, mocks, obfuscates, and then reacts……… and …….. then …….. asks his genuflecting subordinates to provide cover. I look forward to his excuses for this weekend’s airport travesty.
