Up until yesterday, I hadn’t heard much regarding the serology tests that Vice President Mike Pence teased, early on in the “war.” Do we know if the government is giving any priority to them? Since the White House has prioritized the economy over human life, they may want to, at least, appear to care.
Knowing that you’ve already been exposed, but confused it with the flu, would relieve many minds and allow for freer movement to those who could be utilized in many capacities, be it caregivers for those “at risk” to preparing food at restaurants who have seen their storefronts closed due to fear of catching the virus before a vaccine can be made.
The states could even create some Peace Corps-style volunteer training to help overwhelmed doctors and nurses, do grunt work in the makeshift ICU’s. Think Radar, Corp. Klinger or Father Mulcahy from “MASH.” Card-carrying Covid-19 survivors please apply!
But all that takes coordination, not some “wait and see” approach.
Based on the shameful “leadership” coming from the White House, it appears that the sooner people who can remember when the country took responsibility for big tasks are dead, the sooner they can stick their heads in the sand and be guilt-free of their missteps.
