Given the new case rates of Covis-19 70,000 each day, we are on track to 1 million new cases a week. The wretched events in Arizona with a positive rate of +25% is likely because of a newly identified strain of the virus. It is more infectious, stronger, and probably should be labeled covid-20.
Yet folks are still resistant to wearing a mask. The cloth masks and face coverings may be stylish, and it is great that folks are wearing them. But keep in mind they may protect only 30 to 60 percent of germs. KN95 or N95 filters are the best protection. Pay no attention to what messages are coming from the White House or governors of the southern states. If you follow them you may have a deadly outcome.
Anyone that does not take the threat seriously has not had this infection or known someone who has had this infection. One of my clients had it and recovered. Another client had a sister and a friend had it and they both were nurses. An acquaintance died 7/14/2020 in Saudi Arabia.
To be clear, any governor or mayor that is stepping up to mandate wearing a mask now is two to three months behind the curve. You, friends, or family may have covid-19 infection and not know. In the United States, the virus is out of control and can’t be fixed in 2020. It will only get worse. Europe and Japan once saw the United States as the torchbearer; a leader that once was the standard for healthcare. They now see the United States as partisan politics dismissing that standard. America is squandering the inheritance of future generations. It has become a confused, dawdling miscreant without direction or care.
It seems the closing of bars rings louder than safe schools; the president goes to Miami Florida and does not address the tens of thousands of people infected.
In the American Southern and west coast. Covid-19 has spiked above 5% positive rates in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana Texas, Arizona and California and eight other states. More than any other country on the planet the United States has no control of the crisis. Every nation has closed travel to and from the United States.
There is little doubt in my mind that is the objective of this White House administration. Every effort from the Corona Virus Task Force for positive response has been blocked. Gas lighting, obstruction, slow boating and dismissal of the seriousness of the virus is routine. The most loyal component of Trump’s base, White Supremacists, demand the actions Trump has taken and more.
But white deaths, not to disparage the higher rates of infection and death for non-Caucasians, in the state of Arizona. The positive rate is about 25 percent
Granted 10 times as many deaths per 100,000 were experienced by native Americans than White People, the numbers are quickly growing all around but many white people are dying that were not dying before, A strong strain has surfaced in Phoenix and it seems to be stronger and more infectious.
.More importantly the case and death rates are accelerating for one reason; ineptitude and destruction of the process to control the virus. Reasons for America’s poor response will address in the next article.
To speak of the election in the United States is to address its differences and fears which are what are its most prominent issues. The economy, the pandemic, and discord over the concern over not only rights of all citizens but the basic concepts of what the country alleges to represent. For instance, “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created are created equal.” These words are the beginning of the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson. What is widely known but hardly addressed as a fundamental flaw is men referred to Caucasian men. All others including men of color, whom generally were slaves, and d all women were completely dismissed and left out of the statement. It is not mentioned the country was founded on white privilege.
It is 2020 and United States elections face issues as never before. Is the president working for a foreign agent or government? Is America truly about white privilege? A white supremacist march where Thomas Jefferson grew up and racial strife erupting when police kill unarmed black men give one concern. The dismissal of a global pandemic and a poor economy from the Republican party offer little comfort.
