I guess this is the pandemic that causes us to realize that government public health, and infection control field (IPAC) are fundamentally useless.

Can't get masks for respiratory virus 19 months in.

Never mind the other issues like ...

Public health is absolutely and grossly broken.

Here is what public health should look like. Period. Full stop.
