Which Plan to End the Pandemic

Which Plan to End the Pandemic

It has been more than seven months since the United States went into a tailspin from the global health pandemic.    COVID-19 has caused havoc at every corner of this planet.  The United States now has reported more than 200,000 deaths and almost 8 million people have been infected thus far.  While we are only 6% of the world population, we have 20% of the world’s COVID-19 cases and deaths.  Health experts are predicting US could have 400,000 deaths by the end of the year if the virus makes a resurgence this fall.  One of the biggest factors to returning to somewhat of a normal existence depends upon who wins the election next month.  To that end, VOTE.  There are two vastly different approaches awaiting Americans depending upon who is elected President.

At this time President Trump has tested positive and is infected with the Coronavirus as are numerous senators, White House staff and aides. 6 of 7 Joint Chiefs of Staff are quarantined after the Coast Guard Rear Admiral tested positive.  The President spent three days in the hospital and continues to recover at the White House.  As with most things Trump, there is doubt cast that his physician has given accurate information about his health status.  The President seems unphased that he is contagious and continues to defy wearing a mask for his and other people’s protection.  He has defied the isolation orders and returned to the Oval Office and is making campaign videos.  For Donald Trump, the Coronavirus is a political issue and not a global health issue.

Although it is now known that the President had information about the virus early in the year, he chose not to say anything for three months as to not panic Americans.    The President is responsible for creating a willful theatre of misinformation about the virus allowing fear, chaos, and the spread of rumors.  Initially he called it a hoax, said it was going to just disappear and he still claims it will dissipate.  The President has repeatedly refused to take any responsibility for the failures of his administration to adequately address the virus and the impact to the health care industry and first responders.  He, instead, authorized the fifty governors to develop plans for how they would react to the virus and reopen their economies. The robust economy we enjoyed has collapsed.   The White House Coronavirus Task Force has largely decided to defy the suggestions and recommendations of federal health agencies such as Centers for Disease Control, National Institutes of Health, and the Federal Drug Administration how to limit the spread of the virus.  At every turn, the White House (President) is defiant of health, science, and infectious disease expert’s advice, including the need to ensure the vaccine has been fully tested and guidelines approved.  The President has been consistent that the country needs to resume full operation and reopen the economy.  His newest health expert (a radiologist) is proposing that we reopen the economy by allowing herd immunity and ignoring the virus.  Health experts say that more than 60% of the US population would have to contract the disease in order to bring immunity and that approximately 6 million people would die in this proposal.  The President has been very vocal that schools need to reopen in person, sporting events need to resume with fans in the stands and that to continue to keep certain sectors of the economy closed is very harmful.  The President has consistently held both indoor and outdoor campaign rallies with no mask requirement and no social distancing as are recommended by health experts.  Each city where a rally is held has seen a resurgence of the virus within a couple of weeks and people have died.  Health experts fear a new wave of infections in the coming months will further plunge the economy into a recession.

Vice President Joe Biden has repeatedly said the economy will not reopen until the virus is contained.  Unlike the President, Mr. Biden feels the advice of health experts and medical science must prevail to stem the continued spread of this disease.   Until the virus is contained, a vaccine is available and people take the situation seriously the economy will not reopen.   Mr. Biden has religiously practiced the CDC guidelines to social distance and wear masks in his campaign efforts.  He has been ridiculed by the President for doing so.

The Vice President believes there should be free testing and economic recovery plans for all sectors of the economy.  He believes that scientists should control the discussion, protocols, and timeline for full public reintegration into the economy.  He believes it is the responsibility of the federal government to protect and support families and businesses.  The Vice President would reinstitute a federal office of public health and first responders to address nation-wide health emergencies.  President Trump disregarded the pandemic plan left by his predecessor.  Vice President believes it is the responsibility of all Americans to take the necessary precautions, such as wearing masks and social distancing, for the country to resume a normal robust economy.  The President feels it is every American’s right to choose whether or not they wear a mask, social distance or abide by health regulations.

The human toll of the pandemic is far more than the number of people infected with the virus and the growing number of souls lost.  More than 100,000 businesses have permanently closed since March.  Every single sector of the economy has been negatively affected.  Without any additional financial support from the government people cannot pay rent, buy food and unemployment funds are running dry in many states.  More than 11 million Americans remain out of work.   The members of our government have been unable to develop an aid package that is bipartisan, a compromise that addresses the needs of the citizens.  The President called off the stimulus until after the election and then put a tweet out with a plan and now is back to a single item of $1200 to each person.  It is fairly evident to me that there will be no relief for Americans any time soon.  On the other hand, the Stock Market is up, and investors are getting wealthy with many making more than $300,000 since March.  We live in a divided society on many levels.

This is a lot of information to digest with two vastly different approaches to resolving the same issue. Do you feel a personal responsibility to do what is necessary so that the US citizens can resume a normal life?   Have you come to the conclusion that the pandemic is not real and choose to generally ignore the guidelines?  What has been your experience since March?  Do you know anyone who has died from COVID-19?  Since this health crisis has turned into a political football, which politician plan would you support?  Remember to VOTE.

Thank you, ReadersMagnet for reviewing my manuscript! Before, I wasn’t really sure if I should push forward my plans of self-publishing my book because I am not confident with my words. Your editorial services and your honesty made gave me the boost I needed. Now I am excited to take a step further. I feel inspired. Great job, ReadersMagnet!
