Some of these deaths were unavoidable, but most, about 70%, should never have happened. The number who died needlessly exceeds US combat deaths from WW I, Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, the Gulf Wars, and 9/11 combined. The ongoing missteps of Donald Trump magnified a serious contagion into an American catastrophe.
Control of an epidemic requires limiting its spread. The sick must be properly cared for. Masks, personal protective equipment, limits on movement, and social distancing are of critical importance - and have been used by many nations to slow (and even stop) the spread of COVID-19.
This pandemic must be fought by testing for the virus, contact tracing, and isolation when appropriate. In America, we have spectacularly failed to provide all of the above, and the reason is... Trump's leadership.
