NBC News Reports: Trump administration's lack of a unified coronavirus strategy will cost lives, say a dozen experts
The Trump administration has failed to implement a national response to COVID-19, forcing states to come up with their own plans. This has put thousands of Americans at risk of contracting the virus.
We need a unified strategy to protect Americans and yet, so far, the federal government has no leveraged its authority or influence at all. In fact, we are still lacking sufficient supplied of medical equipment for healthcare workers on the front lines and he still has not required all 50 states to implement a shelter-in-place rule.
"This is a problem that we should be dealing with over the entire nation," said William Haseltine, a biologist famed for his work on HIV and AIDS. "This is a national problem — it needs a national response."
The Trump administration has not nationalized the medical logistics system and still has not implemented a national testing strategy.
"This is not a partisan issue," said Kenneth Bernard, a retired Navy rear admiral and biosecurity expert who served in the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. "There needs to be a central command presence on this. There needs to be a person who can act as a focal point for tests, personal protective equipment and countermeasures — acquisition and distribution. Right now, it's too fragmented and fractured, and that's counterproductive, because the states are competing against the federal government for the same sources of materials."
When will our government step up and provide Americans with a clear plan of action?
