Trump tries to dump CDC

Jennifer Prah Ruger served on the CDC Director's Advisory Ethics Subcommittee during the wake of SARS, anthrax attacks and avian influenza, and she totally disagrees with Donald Trump's reopening of the economy.

She asks the question, "What has become of the CDC? The CDC is the national agency tasked with protecting America from threats to our health, safety, and security." She draws comparisons with other countries...
"CDCs in South Korea and Taiwan helped those countries act swiftly, decisively and successfully against Covid-19. The Taiwan Centers for Disease Control activated the Central Epidemic Command Center and imposed home quarantines, border restrictions, a face mask distribution system and other preventative measures. The CDCs in Taiwan and South Korea spearheaded rigorous detection and contact tracing, communication, and isolation."

Ruger comments that the CDC is a "national treasure" and just one of the reasons is that, as a very young agency, newly created in 1946, it eliminated malaria in 1951. The Oval Office lunatic wouldn't know this because his grasp of history only goes back to yesterday. She gives a good background in understanding the pandemic...
"A pandemic is an epidemic's spread across multiple countries. While pathogens are natural, epidemics and pandemics occur through human behaviors that spread them. Weak policies, institutions and leadership foster these disasters. Pandemics are preventable and controllable."
How COVID-19 spreads...

Ruger talks about 'human behavior' and it is obvious that the country reacts to Donald Trump's pronouncements, taking the lead on something they favor, like reopening businesses, etc. Trump sends out his double-digits to ramp up the crowd, resulting in an osmosis to those who aren't his supporters who temporarily forget the fact that COVID-19 is deadly, and there is a reason the scientists from the CDC have established their warnings.

 The great hope to curb the spread of coronavirus is, like with any disease, to create a vaccine to immunize the public. That's what the CDC and several private companies are attempting to do, but, T-rump, in his haste to open the country, minimizes the work being done with this headline, "Trump downplays the need for coronavirus vaccine: ‘It’ll go away at somepoint.’" Yeah, like a bad cold. He has said this before but it gets more stupid as the pandemic progresses.

Listen to the reasoning of a mentally incompetent moron who has no idea what he is doing...
“We think we’re going to have a vaccine in the pretty near future, and if we do we’re going to really be a big step ahead”
“And if we don’t, we’re going to be like so many other cases where you had a problem come in, it’ll go away at some point, it’ll go away. It may flare up and it may not flare up, we’ll have to see what happens, but if it does flare up we’re going to put out the fire and we’ll put it out quickly and efficiently. We’ve learned a lot.”
Donald Trump says COVID-19 will go away, vaccine or not...

This idiot has learned absolutely nothing, and the tragedy of the whole situation, as I have mentioned before, is that this oaf does not realize just how stupid he is. Everybody else knows but he doesn't. And this “Operation Warp Speed” crap is just another ploy to snow his double-digit followers, and mis-lead the general public in thinking that he actually has a plan. He doesn't...he never has...and he never will. It is free-wheel conning at its very best-Donald Trump perfected it.

NPR reports...
"Americans should oust President Trump from the White House and elect a leader who will support – rather than undermine – public health experts who are battling the COVID-19 pandemic, British medical journal The Lancet says in a newly published editorial."
Trump announces “Operation Warp Speed” bullshit...

Not a novel idea, except for the part about the CDC, which draws attention to how well this organization is respected, even across the pond. There's more...
The unsigned editorial sharply criticizes the Trump administration, saying it has marginalized the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to a degree that is dangerous for both the U.S. and the world.
"Americans must put a president in the White House come January, 2021, who will understand that public health should not be guided by partisan politics," the journal says.
Yes, we know that, and the balanced side of the U.S. population is doing everything it can to accomplish this in November. GET OUT THE VOTE!
