The SARS2 / COVID19 / new coronavirus crisis is the result of failures by many people. If you can't admit the following things are true, you're stuck in blind fandom:
✔️ China lied repeatedly and suppressed internal warnings and failed to quarantine the infection
✔️ US and other countries foolishly outsourced vital manufacturing to China
✔️ Trump refused to listen to the many people who warned him this was serious
✔️ CDC inexcusably delayed testing as they bickered over it. They should have put out multiple tests instead of insisting on one standard. Vital time was lost
✔️ Trump administration seems to have learned nothing from govt epidemic drills
✔️ Trump and Fox News wrongfully minimized the virus threat, denouncing concern as partisan machinations
✔️ The China ban was a good idea. It should have been done sooner
✔️ CDC failed to quarantine and surveil all China travelers
✔️ Instead of admitting to mistakes and promising to do better, Trump attacks
✔️ It's right to draw attention to PRC mistakes and lies but the "Chinese Virus" stuff is useless and prejudicial
✔️ We need tests & treatment centers. There's nothing wrong w/demanding them.
