A Short Note on the Pandemic #6March 18, 2020
As the United States moves further into the Corvid-19 Pandemic, the President proposes to give some Americans a $1,000 check to ease the burden caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus. One can view this as hush money for his initial ineptitude in dealing with the pandemic before Americans began to get sick. His lackadaisical approach caused his American supporters not to take Corvid-19 seriously and thereby to avoid appropriate steps to ward off the infection. As the numbers grow in the coming days, some, if not all, of the new coronavirus cases, can be traced back to the President’s initial down-play of the severity of the disease. Come November 3, $1000 can cause a large number of Americans to forget what inaction took place in January.
