US is not in a 'good place' as Covid cases top three million

Dennis Fitzgerald
Filed on July 10, 2020

International media is reporting that the US president's campaign event in Tulsa in June could have been a contributor to a surge in new cases in the United States. Are we surprised? Although I have no medical knowledge beyond high school science and Dr Google, there are some things that seem obvious. Covid-19 is spreading fast, irrespective of boundaries. No one is immune.This viral infection doesn't discriminate on the basis of age or geographical location. The only way to control the spread is by adhering to social distancing norms. Crowded events make it easier for the virus to spread. Wearing masks when stepping outside should become mandatory and people should see a reason in donning it. Vaccinations are good. That's not too complicated, is it? These are simple points that seem to be beyond the ability of some people to understand or accept. People should listen to doctors such as Dr Anthony Fauci and medical professionals in other countries, as often the faint voice of a real expert is the one that is talking sense. Three million cases does not put America in a 'good place' as Mr Trump is suggesting. - Dennis Fitzgerald, Melbourne, Australia
