So here we are, we have the COVID-19 in America. Out of control with shutdowns everywhere. It started in another country, China, months ago. Yes, there had been past pandemics but with swift modern transportation; covid-19 has spread in over 100 countries, too quick. We read about the spread months before it got here. Did we react too slow by believing it wasn't coming? Did we have fewer watchdogs at the gates of entry? How did they get in so easily? Why did we worry about administering tests only to people who could afford it? Was our tracking of cases or contacts and those quarantined sloppy? What was our main 2 problems in your opinion? Are we behind in other country's health systems? We must do better. Very dangerous and costly.
