The state of Utah, Salt Lake Metropolis and the Salt Lake Metropolis College District’s workplace are however a number of of the a whole lot of governmental and quasi-governmental businesses which have now depended on hysteria to make disastrous coverage selections. I’ve been in touch with all of these above-mentioned native businesses and requested all of them what medical professionals they’ve consulted who’ve endorsed them on the disastrous and ill-informed selections they’re making on our behalf with relation to the COVID-19 “outbreak.” With out exception it has been numerous well being departments (thoughts you, additionally authorities entities). My second query was, “Are you following their directives?” To which once more, universally, I bought a protracted pause and no direct reply. I then requested what revered medical personnel exterior of presidency businesses they consulted, and once more the lengthy pause and no direct reply.
I, however, have spoken to a few physicians, one epidemiologist and a number of other different well being professionals and have universally obtained the identical response: overreaction by these making these selections.
They’re reacting to a virus that up to now has a decrease mortality charge (adjusting for the age of these contracting it) than the widespread chilly, most flu outbreaks and beestings worldwide.
So what’s the purpose for this overreaction? I can’t give you a solution. However as I’ve all the time informed my kids over time, when you may perceive the actions of the insane, then you definitely can be insane your self. I’m now including politicians to that class. And who desires to be in both a kind of teams?
