Trump Won't Help Us; Can We Help Ourselves?
When you travel through an airport in China, you walk through a full body scanner that measures if you have a fever. Here in the United States, you can buy in your local drugstore or on Amazon a thermometer that looks like a small radar device that you can point at someone's forehead from a few feet away and it will immediately tell you their temperature. It costs about $20! Why are we not, as a simple starting point, equipping security guards in our schools and TSA people at airports with these widely available devices to prevent children with fevers from entering schools and people with fevers from getting on airplanes? Or restaurants and hotels? Or office buildings?
If we can't rely on Trump's government to protect us, we need to look for ways to protect ourselves.
It's not a pandemic, it's a Dem panic.
Damned news media gets me every time. I have to come here of all places to get reassured that all this pandemic crap is exaggerated. So, what's really going on ? What ever it is, it's got the whole world fooled.
Your irony is much appreciated.
The "it" is really the Republican Party, not the desperate apolitical attempt by leading medical scientists to confront a new virus that is magnitudes more dangerous than the other common coronaviruses plaguing humans.
Trump and his cult are the loudest paragons of misinformation in the whole world but are only fooling themselves. From a political standpoint, perhaps they should not have hired the world's foremost expert on the spread of infectious diseases, one among others who are seriously trying to also stop contagious stupidity from spreading:
At least 8 years ago after I got off an all night flight to Taiwan, I was stopped at a nurse station for a fever check. The nurses were deck out in full nurse outfits. They did the 2 second forehead check and released me. I had walked through an unseen detector and they blamed my cell phone which was heating up searching for a signal.
