Thanks for providing the link to the NYT article. Normally they keep their articles behind a paywall, but COVID-19 stories are free in the wild. So to speak.
This is horrific. Such a shambles! People are dying because of these delays. The virus does not have a passport, nor does it have any party affiliation. It just does what it does without any mind or purpose.
Deploying political tools and rhetoric against this killer is useless.
