CGTN: America again failing coronavirus fight

In my latest editorial for CGTN, I examine why the U.S. seems destined for more misery from coronavirus and its many strains.

These data require us to ask just how dangerous the nation’s health situation will become before the federal and state governments admit the obvious: America might need another short-term lockdown.

Over the past year, while lockdowns in some form have been announced elsewhere, especially in European countries, large segments of the U.S. population have continued to carry on as if there is nothing to worry about. This dangerous notion is aided in a sizable portion of the country by a host of right-wing cable and radio programs, all of which are creating an echo chamber, saying that Americans should consider coronavirus to be nothing more than the flu.

That is a moronic argument to make.
