Losing the War

We are losing the war against COVID-19.

As a society we have failed to rise up to the challenge. 

Our leadership is a shambles. The "generals" leading the war are uncoordinated and divided. The logistic infrastructure is tragically broken and inefficient, and the soldiers in the field (the first responders) are being left to fend for themselves. As a result, civilians are dying in increasingly alarming numbers.

And Washington is silent while Americans are dying.

The headlines record the state of the conflict.

Eighteen states set daily case records in the past week, and 40 have had 14-day increases in cases per capita. - The New York Times 

In Illinois, the ‘Million Unmasked March’ proceeds with about 150 people. - The New York Times

This country prepares for potential second wave as coronavirus cases creep back up - Fox News Note: You might think this is about the U.S.--but it is about France

As tide turns, retailers that resisted masks relent - Fox News

U.S. records 1,000 coronavirus deaths for fourth day, some progress seen - Reuters
