The Reason Donald Trump Will Take a Pill But Not Advice – POLITICO

In every one of these instances, Trump paid a price, at least in the short termmultiple corporate bankruptcies and very nearly personal financial ruin. Ultimately, though, he was stalled but not stainedand definitely not stopped. The headlines, no matter what they said, still made him more and more famous. And what often exasperated his staffers and minders and critics in the circles of the social and financial elite also didnt lose him any fans.

Its worked for him, granted Nobles, the Trump Shuttle president. You cant argue with the mans success.

The spotlight, after all, led to The Apprentice, which led to his turn toward politics, which led to the Oval Office.

He frequently cites his smartsDonald Trumps very, very large brain, as he once put it. A self-styled expert on topics ranging from technology to the weather to all types of medical matters, Trump is especially attuned, too, to what his base craves. The base wanted hydroxychloroquine from the start. And the base wants it still. And Trump is well aware. Its what every pitchman has always done, former Trump publicist Alan Marcus once told me. Tell the people what they want to hear.

Ive received a lot of positive letters and it seems to have an impact, he said Monday in the White House. And maybe it does; maybe it doesnt. But if it doesnt, youre not going to get sick or die. This is aa pill thats been used to a long timefor 30, 40 years on the malaria, and on lupus, too, and even on arthritis, I guess, from what I understand.

He said hed been taking it for about a week and half.

And Im still here, he said. Im still here.

Not everybody whos known him through the years thinks hes telling the truth.

Not a chance, said Res, the former executive vice president. I dont think he would subject himself to any potential harm. He wants everyone to think hes taking it and to think everything he has said all along about it has been right. Thats what he wants. Thats why hes saying hes taking it.

Louise Sunshine, though, another former Trump Organization executive vice president, thinks he is. I asked her why. Shes known Trump for almost 50 years. Because one of his West Wing valets tested positive for the virus, she said. Because the vice presidents spokeswoman tested positive.

Because, Sunshine said, hes scared.

Whether hes taking it or not, Trump biographer Tim OBrien told me Tuesday evening, I think he has two goals here. One is to distract. And in addition to distraction, he is also a very desperate man whos trying to control something he cant controlthe coronavirus and its economic effectsand theres a clock ticking in the back of his mind. And he said in the earliest stages of this that itll be like a miracle. It goes away. And so now hes buying into miracles, and he wants other people to buy into it, too.

Trump, in OBriens estimation, is taking hydroxochloroquine, or is saying that he is, for the same reason hes refused so far to wear a mask. It involves, OBrien said, conceding to expertise.

Trump news live: Trump visits golf course for second day in a row as coronavirus deaths near 100,000 – The Independent

Posted: at 3:05 pm

As the nation's death toll approaches 100,000 lives lost during the coronavirus pandemic, Donald Trump was spotted playing golf, as crowds of people flocked to beaches and parties over Memorial Day weekend despite growing infection rates across the US.

The president also shared sexist insults about his political rivals, including one message that called Hillary Clinton a "skank", while also spending the weekend on Twitter floating conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

After encouraging Americans to spend the weekend outdoors and at the golf course, White House health official Dr Deborah Birx defended her remarks following reports of massive crowds over the holiday weekend and suggested that Americans need to change their behaviour and follow physical distancing guidelines, which are beginning to ease in most states after weeks of quarantine.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

The president's top economic adviser meanwhile has predicted that the unemployment rate will remain in double digits by the 2020 presidential election in November and hit 20 per cent by the end of May, as the number of unemployed Americans continues to creep upward.

Following a Columbia University study that showed at least 30,000 lives could've been saved if social distancing guidelineswere put in place a week earlier, Donald Trump calledthe university a "liberal, disgraceful institution."

"It's a disgrace" that "played right into their little group of people that tell him what to do," the president told Sharyl Attkisson's Full Measure. Hesuggestedthat the study "caters" toJoe Biden and his Democratic opponents as a political tool, though it has nothing to do with their campaigns.

The president also accusedhis rival, the former vice president, of being "not mentally sharp enough to be president," which sounds familiar.

He also told Full Measure that he sometimes tweets himself but when he's "too busy" he dictates to White House social media manager Dan Scavino.

Video from NBC News shows the president driving around in a golf cart and putting on the green at his Virginia course on Sunday, his second straight day of golfing as the US death toll from coronavirus approaches 100,000.

In 2014, then-citizen Trump slammed Barack Obama for golfing during the Ebola crisis, when there were a handful of cases, saying that it "send the wrong signal".

Black patients were hospitalised at nearly three times the rate of white and Hispanic patients, according to an analysis of patient records from a large health care system in Northern California.

Donald Trump continued to voice his opposition to expanded mail-in voting with a tweet on Sunday spreading falsehoods about the prevalence of fraud in the process, even though confirmed cases of voter fraud have been in the single digits in past presidential elections.

The United States cannot have all Mail In Ballots. It will be the greatest Rigged Election in history, Mr Trump tweeted, the latest in a recent uptick of attacks on Democrats and even many Republicans desire to expand mail-in voting to mitigate health risks during the coronavirus pandemic.

People grab them from mailboxes, print thousands of forgeries and force people to sign. Also, forge names, the president wrote, falsely, without citing any evidence to support such claims.

Following an explosive surges of cases and deaths in Brazil, led by right-wing president Jair Bolsonaro, who has downplayed the threat of coronavirus in his country, US national security adviserRobert OBrien says it's likely the US could put a "temporary" ban on travel from the country, similar to holds in place for China and Europe.

Because of the situation in Brazil, we are going to take every step necessary to protect the American people," he told CNN's Face the Nation on Sunday.

Brazilhas the largest-known outbreak following the USwith more than 347,000 infections and more than 22,000 deaths.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that professional sports teams can begin spring training camps on Sunday, following weeks of doubtwhether team sports will pick up again this fall.

He said: "I believe that sports that can come back without having people in the stadium, without having people in the arena, do it.Do it.Work out the economics, if you can. We want you up. We people to be able to watch sports to the extent people are still staying home. It gives people something to do. It's a return to normalcy."

Veterinarians can also reopen this week, along with campgrounds and RV parks.

Charlamagne Tha God appeared on MSNBC on Sunday following Joe Biden's apology for tellingThe Breakfast Club host that black Americans who don't vote for him "ain't black".

"The best apology is actually a black agenda," he told Joy Reid. "It has to come to a point where we stop putting the burden on black voters to show up for Democrats, and start putting the burden on Democrats to show up for black voters."

Donald Trump unleashed a string of vile, sexist messages against his Democratic rivals while promoting false claims about absentee ballots and suggesting MSNBC host Joe Scarborough had something to do with the death of a former intern in 2001 just before he headed to his Virginia golf club for a second day while nearly 100,000 Americans died from coronavirus.

Face coverings have become a political symbol among the nation's right wing.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, echoingNorth Dakota Governor Burgum's emotional press conference urging residents to wear face coverings, told NBC's Meet the Press that"it's not about conservative or liberal, it's about helping other people."

Without any effectivelaw-binding or consistent mandates on the state or federal level to enforce social distancing, Dr Deborah Birx questioned about her encouraging people to spend the Memorial Day weekend outdoors said "we've made it clear" there's asymptomatic spread and that "social distancing is absolutely critical".

"We've learned a lot about this virus, but we need to translate that learning into real changed behaviour," she told ABC on Sunday.

But, Martha Raddatzsaid, we're not seeing that months after those guidelines have been in place.

"It's our job to communicate," Dr Birx said.

When Donald Trump said in late March he didnt think the economic devastation from stay-at-home orders was a good trade-off for avoiding Covid-19 deaths, tweeting, WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF, economists across the country already were busy working on the exact kind of cost-benefit analysis implied by the president.

On Friday, after Donald Trump ordered states' governors to "reopen" houses of worship, White House health official Dr Deborah Birx encouraged Americans to head outside, "play golf" and spend the Memorial Day weekend outdoors, with the caveat that social distancing bein place.

Most states already have begun easing quarantine measure over the last several weeks, andMemorial Day weekend has emerged as a benchmark test to determine whether Americans are willing to embrace a "new normal" that involves careful physical distancing, face coverings and other protective measures in what's still the early phase of the coronavirus pandemic.

They aren't.

Reports of crowded beaches and boardwalks over the weekend have alarmed police, doctors and health officials. At least one mayor supports seeing the swelling crowds.

A top economic adviser to Donald Trump has predicted that the unemployment rate could still be in double digits by the 2020 presidential election in November, as the number of unemployed Americans continues to creep upward due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Griffin Connolly reports:

Hong Kong police fired tear gas and water cannon to disperse thousands who, in defiance of curbs imposed to contain the coronavirus, gathered on Sunday to protest against Beijing's plan to directly impose national security laws on the city.

In a return of the unrest that roiled the financial hub last year, crowds thronged the bustling shopping area of Causeway Bay, where chants of "Hong Kong independence, the only way out", and other slogans echoed through the streets.

Coronavirus restrictions have largely kept protesters off the streets in recent months.

Underground production at AngloGold Ashanti's Mponeng mine in South Africa will remain closed until further notice after 53 employees tested positive for the coronavirus, a provincial health department said in a statement on Sunday.

The mine, the deepest in the world, restarted operations on April 22 after closing entirely during a nationwide lockdown, and was operating at 50% capacity.

The department of health in Gauteng, the province where the mine is located, said in statement posted on Twitter that 53 employees at the mine had so far tested positive for the virus, and that a further 104 tests were still being processed.

"The management of the mine has indicated that the underground production will remain closed until further notice," the statement said.

China reported three new cases of the coronavirus on Sunday, two from outside the country and one locally transmitted in the northeastern province of Jilin, which has experienced a minor outbreak now apparently largely contained. No new deaths were reported and 79 people remain in treatment, with another 380 under isolation and monitoring for being suspected cases or having tested positive for COVID-19 without showing any symptoms. China has reported a total of 82,974 cases, including 4,634 deaths.

Former Durham Police Chief Constable Mike Barton has said of Dominic Cummings trip to Durham: Lets not beat about the bush he broke the rules. Its very clear.

If youre suffering from coronavirus, you stay at home. Youre in lockdown, you do not leave your home under any circumstances. Not only did they do that and travel 260 miles, but are also then trying to justify it and evade their responsibilities, he said to the BBC.

Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt said the COVIDSafe app is playing a strong role in Australia's response to the pandemic and that several countries have expressed interest in learning from its positive impacts.

If a user is diagnosed, the app works to identify other users who have been in close proximity for 15 minutes or more in the previous three weeks.

The government has said at least 40% of Australia's 26 million people need to use the app for it to be effective. There are approximately 17 million cellphones in Australia.

The government and states have been easing restrictions on travel and allowed for increased use of restaurants and bars in the past few weeks. Australia has recorded more than 7,100 cases of thecoronavirus, including 102 deaths.

Labour's Ian Murray has condemned a lack of transparency from both the UK and Scottish governments as the further impact of coronavirus cases linked to a Nike conference in Edinburgh came to light.

More than 70 employees from around the world attended the event at the Hilton Carlton Hotel on February 26 and 27.

Investigations found that at least 25 people linked to the event contracted Covid-19, including eight in Scotland, but the incident was not made public until it was revealed in a television documentary earlier this month.

The first coronavirus case in Scotland was announced on March 1 and was a Tayside resident unrelated to the conference.

But the Sunday Times says it has been reported locally that the North East of England's "patient zero" attended the conference in February and the infection was passed to a second person in Newcastle at a child's birthday party.

The Chronicle newspaper also states that a church in Newcastle closed after a member tested positive for coronavirus, with it being "understood the patient works for Nike in Sunderland and contracted the virus after attending a conference in Edinburgh" - although this was unconfirmed at the time.

Here's what Dr. Deborah Birx had to say about Trump wearing a mask - CNN

Coronavirus US live: Birx says Trump wears mask when not socially distancing – The Guardian

Posted: at 2:57 pm

The United States will on Sunday impose a lockdown on travelers from Brazil, according to Donald Trumps national security adviser.

Covid-19 deaths have soared in Brazil as the countrys foul-mouthed president, Jair Bolsonaro, continues to deflect from the crisis. It seems the Trump administration has heard enough.

I think well have a decision today with respect to Brazil, just like we did with the UK and Europe and China, and we hope it will be temporary, Robert OBrien told CBSs Face the Nation.

Were concerned about the people of the southern hemisphere, OBrien continued, the people of Brazil, theyve had a rough go of it. But because of the situation in Brazil, were going to take every step necessary to protect the American people.

As of now Id say Brazil, and well take a look at the other countries on a country by country basis.

OBrien did not divulge details of any such lockdown. But the conversation did allow him to pick up the White House narrative of painting China as the bogeyman of the Covid-19 crisis.

They allowed those folks to travel from China to Europe, and to seed the disease in Europe and have it come through a backdoor into the United States, OBrien said. In perfect hindsight, when we realized the Europeans hadnt cut off travel, sure it would have been better to cut off earlier.

OBrien claimed literally hundreds of thousands or millions of lives were saved by Trumps travel bans, and that the presidents move was a profile in courage.

The Washington Post reported on Saturday on how Trumps restriction on flights from Europe backfired badly.

OBrien also said he expected an in-person G7 gathering of world leaders to take place in Washington in late June.

Were getting very close to the peak [of the pandemic] if were not already, in Washington and if the situation permits it, and we think it will, wed love to have the G7 in person, OBrien said.

Well make sure everybodys tested, well make sure its a safe environment. The leaders would love to get out of their offices and meet in person to plan the post-Covid world.

Two other notable footnotes: the US presidential election will take place as planned on 3 November, no question about it OBrien says, despite speculation fuelled by comments from Trumps son-in-law Jared Kushner that the administration might be looking at a postponement.

Well have to see what happens with the virus, but we want to make sure that we have a free and fair election. That elections going to take place on election day, theres no question about it, OBrien said, declaring that stockpiles of PPE, especially masks, were being built for election workers.

OBrien also insisted there was no security risk posed by Trump, the nations commander in chief, continuing to take hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug that the Food and Drug Administration says could have life-threatening side effects.

Im sure theyre doing the right regimen for President Trump hes under great medical care, OBrien said.

Hes doing the right thing that he and his physician believe is good for the president. The guys got more energy than anyone Ive ever seen, he added, claiming improbably that the golf-loving president was working 16, 18 hours a day.

No, Donald Trump, Americans are not dying to work work may cause them to die – The Guardian

Posted: at 2:57 pm

Most of Europe and all 50 US states are in various stages of reopening. But why, exactly?

The pandemic is still with us. After the first tentative steps to ease the lockdown in Germany the most successful large European country in halting the spread of the virus, thanks to massive testing the disease has shown signs of spreading faster.

At least Germany is opening slowly and carefully, as is the rest of the EU.

By contrast, the US with the highest number of deaths and most haphazard response to Covid-19 of any advanced nation is opening chaotically, each state on its own. Some are lifting restrictions overnight.

Researchers expect the reopenings to cause thousands of additional deaths.

Americans whose jobs require them to leave home express trepidation: 60% fear exposing their families to Covid-19

Two weeks after Texas governor, Greg Abbott, began reopening, the state experienced the single-highest rise in cases since the beginning of the pandemic. Since Nebraska reopened on 4 May, Covid-19 cases in Colfax county alone surged 1,390%.

Experts warn that Dallas, Houston, Floridas Gold Coast, the entire state of Alabama and several other places in the south that have rapidly reopened their economies are in danger of a second wave of coronavirus infections over the next four weeks.

Last Monday, Ford reopened its large North American assembly plants. On Tuesday, it closed and reopened its Chicago Assembly plant twice in less than 24 hours, after two workers tested positive for Covid-19. On Wednesday, Ford temporarily shut its Dearborn, Michigan truck plant after an employee tested positive, then promptly resumed operations.

So why reopen so abruptly, when Covid-19 continues to claim lives?

The main reason given is to get the economy moving again. But this begs the question of why an economy exists in the first place, other than to promote the wellbeing of people within it.

Both Ford plants are vital to the companys profitability, and that profitability is important to jobs in the midwest. But surely the wellbeing of Ford workers, their families, the people of Chicago and Dearborn and others are more important.

A related argument is that workers are clamoring to return to their jobs. People want to get back to work, Trump has asserted repeatedly. Fox News host Sean Hannity claims people are dying to get back to work, seemingly unaware of the irony of his words.

Polls suggest otherwise. Americans whose jobs require them to leave home express trepidation about doing so: 60% fear exposing their families to Covid-19.

Many Americans must return to work because they need the money, but this doesnt have to be the case. Rich economies can support their people for years if necessary. During the second world war, America shut down most of its economy for nearly four years.

The obstacle right now is a lack of political will to provide such support, at least until testing and tracing provide reasonable assurance the pandemic is contained.

Although nearly half of all US households report lost employment income since mid-March, extra jobless benefits enacted by Congress are only starting to trickle out now. Trump and the Republican Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, refuse to extend them beyond 31 July.

Meanwhile, states are denying benefits to anyone whose company has called them back.

Finally, Trump and his enablers argue that reopening is a matter of freedom. He has called on citizens to liberate their states from public-health restrictions. Fox News personalities have decried what they call denials of basic freedoms.

Armed protesters stormed the Michigan state capitol, demanding the freedom to work. At the Kentucky statehouse, protesters shouted We want to work! and Were free citizens!

But the supposed freedom to work is a cruel joke when people are forced to choose between putting food on the table or risking their lives. Its the same perverse ideology that put workers in harms way in the dawn of the industrial age, when robber barons demanded workers be free to work in dangerous factories 12 hours a day.

In truth, there is no good reason to reopen when the pandemic is still raging: not getting the economy moving again, or workers clamoring to return to work, or the cost of extended income support, or because workers should be free to endanger themselves.

Lets be clear. The pressure to reopen the economy is coming from businesses that want to return to profitability, and from Trump, who wants to run for re-election in an economy that appears to be recovering.

Neither is reason enough.

The US doctors taking Trumps lead on hydroxychloroquine despite mixed results – The Guardian

Posted: at 2:57 pm

There is an alternate universe of Covid-19 misinformation masquerading as science, which with the encouragement of Donald Trump, is proliferating among his supporters.

Among the most ardent proponents of these claims is the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), a fringe group of less than 5,000 doctors. The group was recently cited by Trumps campaign manager, Brad Parscale, to explain the presidents stunning announcement that he is taking the drug hydroxychloroquine in an attempt to protect himself against Covid-19 despite a lack of evidence of its effectiveness.

When asked what evidence guided the presidents decision-making, Trump said: Are you ready? Heres my evidence: I get a lot of positive calls about it.

Since hydroxychloroquine was approved on an emergency basis by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), studies have shown mixed results, and the dangers of potentially life-threatening side-effects for patients.

Yet Dr Jane Orient, executive director of AAPS, told the Guardian she believed the drug should be prescribed more often, and in a statement based on a flawed database claimed the drug offered about 90% chance of helping Covid-19 patients.

Ive talk to a lot of doctors who are prescribing it [in the US], they are not reporting any problems, their patients have done very well, she said. She did not say how many doctors she knew were prescribing it, and declined to answer whether she herself was prescribing it.

I dont want to have a target put on my back which could result in somebody wanting to scrutinize my entire practice, Orient said.

At first glance, the AAPS has the imprimatur of science. Its members rank among Americas most trusted professionals, and yet it has a track record unlike any other professional medical association.

They seem frequently to offer advice and opinions about medical practice that are not consistent with evidence-based medicine, said Dr Michael Carome, an expert on drug and medical device safety at Public Citizen, a public advocacy group.

Theyre aligned with the Trump administration, that doesnt believe in science, doesnt believe in fact. Theyre completely compatible with the Trump White House.

This group is lobbying on behalf of what they believe to be right, but invariably experts would disagree on their stance on hydroxychloroquine

The group has questioned whether HIV causes Aids (it does), argued abortion causes breast cancer (it does not), linked vaccines to autism (repeatedly debunked), and even alleged former president Barack Obama used hypnosis techniques to trick voters, especially Jewish people, into supporting him (no).

The name does not determine the quality of the group, said John Ayers, a professor of infectious disease and global public health who studies misinformation at the University of California San Diego. This group is lobbying on behalf of what they believe to be right, but invariably experts would disagree on their stance on hydroxychloroquine and other topics and issues, said Ayers.

As far as the presidents pronouncements, Ayers said: We dont know if hes actually even taking it.

Even as Trump said he was taking the drug, some of Americas most respected institutions have begun to move away from it. Yale New Haven medical center, one of the most respected hospitals in the world, removed the drug from its Covid-19 protocol after three weeks of de-emphasizing it in clinical practice.

Massachusetts general hospital, another world-renowned academic medical center, is giving priority to remdesivir, a drug developed by Gilead, although hydroxychloroquine is provided on a case-by-case basis.

The FDA has issued stringent warnings about the drugs potentially life-threatening side-effects and recommended patients on hydroxychloroquine be participants in a clinical trial, or undergo rigorous monitoring, possibly including baseline [electrocardiogram], electrolytes, renal function and hepatic tests.

The AAPSs statements on hydroxychloroquine are not its only dubious views on the Covid-19 crisis.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended wearing masks in public places to prevent asymptomatic people spreading the disease. In other words, it is mostly a selfless act which protects others.

But Orient argued that masks are not free of side-effects and that they retard oxygen to the brain. She later added: I think one jogger even dropped dead. One man in China reportedly suffered a collapsed lung while wearing a mask, though a doctor in the report said there was no clear evidence the mask caused the injury.

While prolonged use of some masks, such as N95 respirators, might cause lightheadedness and discomfort, loose-fitting cloth or surgical masks most commonly used by the public are highly unlikely to cause such severe side-effects.

Orient also voiced her support for lifting stay-at-home orders. They are destroying the economy, they are destroying peoples lives, there is really no evidence they work, she said. The economic and social impacts of the lockdowns have been devastating.

But, there is widespread evidence that stay-at-home orders work, and could have saved thousands more lives had they been imposed earlier. A recent Italian study found the stay-at-home order there prevented about 200,000 hospitalizations. Data from Columbia University found if lockdowns had been imposed in the US two weeks earlier, on 1 March, as many as 54,000 lives could have been saved.

AAPS was formed in 1943, in opposition to a proposal to provide Americans the sort of universal, government-run healthcare established just a few years later in the UK. The NHS would become one of the countrys proudest achievements.

Orients group is small, especially when compared with the mainstream American Medical Association (AMA) which has 240,000 members. But it is influential.

Trumps first health and human services secretary, Tom Price, was a member of AAPS. In a 2011 video unearthed by the Washington Post, Price called Orient a kindred spirit. He said: Its always wonderful to be in the same room with Jane Orient. Jane has been a hero of mine. Price later resigned after spending $1m in taxpayer funds on private jets.

AAPS has diligently worked against proposals which would constrain doctors. For example, it sued the Texas medical board to force it to stop relying on anonymous complaints of misconduct against doctors (the group lost).

Most recently, like Trump, they encourage the use of hydroxychloroquine for treatment of Covid-19, and they think that any oversight be it a physician group or state medical board or mainstream medicine that makes recommendations against use of that drug or tries to restrict use of that drug is just an affront, Carome said.

They think that any oversight that makes recommendations against use of that drug or tries to restrict use of that drug is just an affront

The view of AAPS, he added, is that doctors should be basically free to do whatever they want to do, regardless of the level of evidence, and thats a dangerous perspective for medical practitioners to have in the 21st century.

Samantha Barstow, a licensed pharmacist and adviser on drug shortages with the company Lumere, said this was a rare and uncomfortable situation for government to be involved so directly in prescribing, but in this case it was necessary.

The use for Covid-19 has not significantly been substantiated, Barstow said. The efficacy data is just not there yet. In the meantime, drug shortages could cause patients with approved uses, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, to suffer without medication.

Only six drugs have ever been approved on an emergency basis, like hydroxychloroquine, and most recently Gileads remdesivir. Some researchers believe past drugs approved this way offer a lesson.

In 2009, during the H1N1 influenza pandemic, a drug called peramivir showed promise. It was studied in three clinical trials, but despite compelling and transparent scientific evidence, it failed. By contrast, hydroxychloroquine was backed only by limited lab tests and case reports.

Nevertheless, Orient argues hydroxychloroquine should be available over the counter. Concerns from scientists have nothing to do with concerns about safety and concerns about science, she argued. Her view that lockdowns are despotic, tyrannical and completely unwarranted, and will probably also cause consternation in many circles.

But on some subjects, all can agree: Our pandemic preparedness on the whole has been lousy.
