Coronavirus Has Brought This Nation To Its Knees
Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said yesterday that the COVID-19 has brought this nation to its knees and we probably are going to spend $7 trillion because of this one little virus. Redfield’s comments were made as half of the nation is seeing spikes in new coronavirus cases.
Dr. Anthony Fauci also warned that if we don’t get control of the coronavirus pandemic by fall, we are essentially chasing after the forest fire.
Dr. Redfield also pointed out that this crisis needs to be a partnership. It’s not all the burden of the federal government to invest in public health at the local level. He said in reality if your funding of CDC was to go away tomorrow, the public heath infrastructure across this nation would just crash.
It is true that when you look at our medical system, most of it is made up of private businesses that have as their goal to be financially sound. But because the majority of people do not have insurance, they just can’t take advantage of the service.
Sadly, when this pandemic attacked the nation, the federal government just could not control and coordinate the whole nation to mobile very effectively.
We are urging all the politicians and congress to take dramatic action to face the reality of this disaster. Don’t talk too much political language. Just look at how much people are suffering now.
美國疾病管控中心主仼勒菲在國會能源商業委員會作證時說 ：“新冠疫情把我們整個國家都屈服了， 美國爲了應付這個小小的病毒，可能要花費七萬億美元。”到今天爲止，全國廿五個州之確診人數皆已超過上週之人數，原因是大家都未遵守社交距離、戴口罩， 而且有大型集聚造成傳染的主要原因，傳染病中心主任福祺也嚴重警告，全國疫情如果在秋天都無法管控，我們將面臨有如撲滅野火般的困難。
