“The current U.S. outbreak is especially stark when compared to other large, high-income countries. All have few cases today compared to the United States.”
Medicynical note: Trumps ignorance has been on parade for months. His refused to listen to and follow informed medical advice. He actively undermined informed medical policy. He proudly hired and promoted the unqualified. Meanwhile people who should have known better in the Republican Party showed sheep-like obeisance as this stupid man undermined American democracy in four short years. And it’s sad to me that the best the other side can do is a geriatric placeholder who without question will be an improvement but who also does not inspire great confidence in the future.
Were the ideals of the postwar generation and after a mirage? I’m beginning to think so.
