American politicians obsessed with the “politicization” of the epidemic should wake up (Observatory)
Since mid-September,With the coming of the return season and flu season,The situation of prevention and control of the new crown pneumonia epidemic in the United States has become increasingly severe.Millions of people are infected,200,000 people died-in March this year,When American epidemiologist Fauci made this prediction on the development of the US epidemic,People are still amazed and questioned: Given the economic level and medical conditions of the United States,How could the epidemic be so severe?
Today, half a year later,Reality gives the answer: According to worldometer real-time statistics,As of 6:30 on October 12, Beijing time,There are nearly 8 million confirmed cases of new coronary pneumonia in the United States.There were nearly 220,000 deaths.
“Superpowers” have become the hardest hit areas of the global epidemic,Who caused the current dilemma in the United States?
After the outbreak,Some American politicians have not stopped,”Shaking the pot”, slandering China,Blame the World Health Organization,It looks like a victim.The mainstream media in the United States does not think so.The Washington Post recently commented thatThe United States has the largest number of confirmed cases and deaths in the world.This is largely the result of human error,”A record surge of new cases,It exposes the shortcomings of crisis response from the federal to the local.”
May wish to review briefly,After the outbreak,What did the U.S. government do–
At the beginning of the year,When the new crown virus showed its power in the United States,Faced with warnings from health experts,The US government chose to deliberately downplay the virus threat to the public,The reason is that they don’t want to cause public panic and soaring prices.As a result, the best time to fight the epidemic was missed.
After the epidemic spread rapidly in the United States,The US government has not formulated a unified and effective response strategy.On the contrary, I was thinking about how to shirk the responsibility of ineffective fight against the epidemic.Tirelessly “throwing the pot”, smearing and slandering other countries,In an attempt to divert the attention of the domestic people.
While the epidemic has not yet eased,The U.S. government ignored the dissuasion of health experts,In the absence of adequate testing to ensure safe resumption of work,I hurriedly pressed the “fast forward button” to resume work and resume production,This led to a rebound in the epidemic situation in many places.
The international community calls for unity to fight the epidemic and cooperate in the development of a new crown vaccine,The US government announced its withdrawal from the WHO,Started a “single fight”,Not only staged the “exclusive” vaccine farce,Also politicized the vaccine issue,Refused to attend the Global Vaccine Summit,Refuse to share the results of vaccine development.
The various actions of the US government show thatThe health and safety of American people,Far less important than the political interests of certain politicians.The chief culprit of the spread of the epidemic in the United States,Not outside,And within the United States,It is the US government itself, which does not act indiscriminately, shirks responsibility, covers up mistakes, and indulges in “politicization” manipulation.At the critical moment when the new crown virus seriously threatens humanity,Sitting on the world’s leading medical technology,The US government chose not to save lives,But insisting on letting politics take precedence over science,Eventually pushed the United States into the quagmire of the epidemic,Cause a human tragedy.
As the US “Newsweek” wrote,The “political” epidemic and “political polarization” have made the United States the “global epicenter” of the new crown pneumonia epidemic.Fauci also said frankly in an interview recently,American society has fallen into a state of tearing,Everything is easily politicized,Even the simple question of whether to wear a mask involves a political position.Not a pure public health issue.
now,The epidemic is still raging in the United States.According to AFP report,About two-thirds of the American people expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of the US government in fighting the epidemic in the latest poll.Facing the rising number of confirmed cases and deaths,The first thing the US government should do,Is to take the responsibility of a big country,Working hard to save American lives,Actively promote international anti-epidemic cooperation.I hope,Certain American politicians obsessed with the “politicization” of the epidemic,Able to “wake up” in time.
