As Trump touts increased production, coronavirus swabs made during his Maine factory tour will be tossed in the trash.

He continues to walk in crowded sanitized locations without a mask. I guess if he wears a mask, it should be of Bozo the Clown.

It is dangerous to have an ignorant leader during a crisis. Science is real.

What's even more sad is that he chooses to be ignorant.

Government efficiency?

Tanarak Plipat, deputy director general of the Department of Disease Control, agreed with Dr Taweesilp that ordinary citizens deserved much of the credit, paying tribute to the “spirit of togetherness” of the Thai people in a crisis and recalling the dramatic cave rescue of 2018 as another example.

Dr Tanarak, however, was also keen to assert that the government and Thailand’s robust health security system were largely responsible for the kingdom’s success. In particular, he cited the willingness of politicians to let health experts call the shots; the coordination and cooperation between government departments as well as provincial and local bodies across the country; the clarity of communications to the public about how to avoid disease transmission and the “universal precaution” attitude -- assuming that you and everybody else has the disease until proven otherwise.

Mass mobilisation of healthcare workers?

Finally, Dr Tanarak highlighted the work of more than 1000 epidemiological teams across the country, who he said had been able to investigate every single case, trace every contact and monitor them for 14 days.
This country hasn't had a single, locally-spread case of covid19 in more than 2 weeks despite having recorded the first case of the disease outside of China. Why did they succeed?: They let the health experts call the shots.

More Trump and Pence lies about the pandemic. These lies are down-right crazy.
Trump thinks if we stop testing, it will solve the problem.

Trump supporters are magically protected, so they won't wear masks at his rallies.

The Righteous and Harmonious Fists of the Boxer Rebellion in China of the late 1890's and in 1900 believed that their martial arts and spiritual practices rendered them invulnerable. When they attacked the foreign delegations in Beijing, the foreign barbarians sent in troops to rescue their citizens held up in the foreign legation. The Boxers ended up not being immune and were summarily wiped out. Trumpers believe that they are invulnerable. But the nasty little COVID buggers shall have their way.

The American Indians had a similar revolt around the same time, and it didn't go well either. Trump has chosen to portray the pandemic as a hoax, a trifle, an economic inconvenience, and an unprecedented problem for which he has no responsibility. I can say, first hand, having no confidence in the system in which I live...this problem can be dealt with. It can be dealt with by science.

10 staffers tested positive after the rally.
This vid is a pretty good analysis of America's failures.
