The United States lost the same number of Americans to COVID-19 as it did during 19 years of the Vietnam War. That was by April 19. By June 19, that number doubled. As of Aug. 19, the number of dead Americans has tripled.
Almost all countries of the developed world have many fewer cases per capita and fewer deaths than the United States. Our country has responded shamefully against this pandemic. We are all paying the price in sickness, death and financial insecurity.
This Nov. 3, we must think about this incredible loss of life. Do we want to continue the poor leadership at the top that led to this failure? Or do we want to move ahead with a new and more experienced president of the United States?
