Why the Pandemic Is So Bad in America
How did it come to this? A virus a thousand times smaller than a dust mote has humbled and humiliated the planet’s most powerful nation. America has failed to protect its people, leaving them with illness and financial ruin. It has lost its status as a global leader. It has careened between inaction and ineptitude. The breadth and magnitude of its errors are difficult, in the moment, to truly fathom.
It is a disturbing display of ineptitude and disregard for life that fuels this failure. The administration failed on every level to contain or control this pandemic’s effect in the US. It didn’t need to be like this, and it’s not going to get any better until massive changes in our efforts take place.
