This virus is the real thing. I know people, family and friends who have or are experiencing it. I am angry, and I don't say this lightly, that all state officials are not believing this. Corona knows no boundaries, no nationalities, no justice. Good people are dying. It isn't a matter of if, it is clearly a matter of when anywhere, everywhere.
I have a friend with Lupus. The drug she uses to treat it is scarce now because trump touted it as a likely fix for the virus. When charlatans practice medicine without a license, we prosecute them. Now the leader of our country is doing the same thing and people are buying into it.
I am having trouble listening to elected officials who aren't wearing masks, but have instead opted for blinders. We have put our first responders in jeopardy and are still doing so. Thousands have died in this country and yet many folks are listening to amateurs and not the medical professionals who have the training and experience to speak competently about our status.
