Just now, March 23, 2020, a retired captain in the US military on C-SPAN suggested that healthcare workers should
REFUSE TO TREAT PATIENTS.
Is it going to take something like this for people to wake up and demand that the ‘president’ in the White House order production of personal protective equipment (PPE’s) for those on the front line in this war?
Maybe that would wake up those disgraceful sycophants surrounding Trump before it is too late. What a tragedy unfolding before our eyes – a tragedy that was partially unnecessary, because unlike China and Italy, we could have taken their horrendous experience with this virus seriously far earlier (which is precisely what epidemiologists say is most important of all: act early).
I hope that is not what it is going to take to convince the ‘president’ to finally actually UTILIZE the Defense Production Act of 1950 and order the production of that equipment.
