COVID-19 effort inadequate on all fronts


The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading and mutating. Thousands of planes are flying. People are gathering in groups, and there is essentiall­y no enforcemen­t and no uniform rules.

The vaccines are now approved, but we have yet to vaccinate almost anyone, and the plans to do so are a disaster as is the communicat­ion about what to do. Lines (dangerous ones) are everywhere. Our hospital and front-line workers are overwhelme­d.

When, pray tell, are uniform, thought-out disaster response methods going to be deployed? It is simply imaginatio­n that this will just go away. I am exhausted from the lack of leadership and common sense. We either plan and act, or allow this terrible disease to win.
