But we are in much worse shape. The US has more cases and deaths than any other country in the world. You mean to tell me ( or try to correct me ) that with the kind of health care system, science and technology that the US has, this was the best we could have done for the virus? The failure here at this time and situation we are in is with the government. The commander and chief ( Trump ) is to blame for well, not being a commander in chief in a situation of crisis. The Taiwanese saw the virus coming and took preventative actions which is why that country doesn't even have a hundred deaths. I don't approve of some of the things the Taiwanese government has done but the death rate is one of the lowest in the world. Trump simply ignored advice and downplayed the virus because he was too concerned about being re elected. The virus situation was an irritant to him that he thought would simply go away with the warmer weather as he says.
