美國新冠疫情日記06/24

                            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.

    我們國家都屈服了

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的困難。

勒菲也同樣提出呼籲,公共衛生不止是聯邦政府之事,也更是州地方政府之共同任務,他說:“如果疾管中心不存在,我們全國的公衛系統會立即解崩。”他也指出,在傳染病的全國資訊系統也待加強。

美國疫情已近五個月之久,從勒菲之國會聽證之證詞可以看出,全國公共衛生系統之不足,聯邦到州到郡都缺乏緊密之聯系,加上全國各地之醫院機構大部份是私人企業,其財務和政府無關。

新冠病毒之肆虐造成中央地方政府無法上下協調 ,全國指揮無法貫徹,而導至疫情難予控制。

我們呼籲政客們少一些口水戰,還是來多關心一下民間疾苦吧!
