I am also distressed over the order to send all data about Covid to Alex Azar's Department of Health and Human Services instead of the CDC, the agency designed to read such data. We are being set up to receive fudged data, if we see any data at all. I hope there is a work-around so the public can be fully informed of the dreadful numbers of Covid infections, hospitalizations and deaths that are the outcome of the laissez-faire attitudes of Trump followers who have thoughtlessly swallowed his Kool Aid.
What is the value of education if not to enable people to understand the value of science? If you listen carefully to Dr. Fauci, you see he chooses his words carefully. He tells us that we are still in the process of learning about this novel coronavirus. And until we understand it well enough to create a safe and effective vaccine we must practice age-old behaviors to protect ourselves and society from the spread of this disease. I live in New York where we had the leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo. Here's our current chart of daily and projected corona virus deaths in NYS.
We really sacrificed in lock-down and are timorous about abusing the easing up of restrictions because we don't want to lose what we have gained. Cuomo says that we can open up our schools with some restrictions if we keep Covid at bay. All the answers for our state and cities are on that web site.
If we deny the numbers and the science, science tells us that the numbers of infections, hospitalizations and deaths will rise. Exponentially. Wait and see.
