Coronavirus In Michigan

coronavirus in michigan, “They are NOT effective in preventing general public from catching #Coronavirus, but if healthcare providers can’t get them to care for sick patients, it puts them and our communities at risk!” CLICK HERE FOR FULL CORONAVIRUS COVERAGE Adams was referring to the recent spike in sales of face masks, including N95 respirator masks, that has led to price gouging and potential shortages. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says masks should be worn only by medical professionals and those with the virus, adding the best way to stay healthy is to wash your hands and avoid touching your eyes and mouth.

coronavirus in michigan - Sen. Bernie Sanders is facing growing scrutiny from within the Democrat Party on his far-left policies. If there’s one thing we should all be able to agree on it’s that the potential impact of the coronavirus is too important to politicize. That doesn’t mean our political leaders should remain silent, it simply means they should be constructive -- if they deem criticism necessary -- and otherwise supportive. Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders’ statement Wednesday is a perfect example of what politicians should not be doing.

coronavirus in michigan, After repeating his version of the Democrats’ “inadequate and incompetent response” soundbite, Sanders proceeded to claim that “under the Trump doctrine, if you are wealthy you can buy a vaccine and not succumb to the sickness. If you are poor or working class, you have to get sick or even die.”  Even for a socialist promoting Medicare-for-all, it was an absurd claim. Sanders based his claim on Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s statement that the administration would work to “ensure” that a coronavirus vaccine is “affordable,” but that it “can't control that price because we need the private sector to invest. Price controls won't get us there.”  Azar’s statement was accurate but certainly did not mean that those who are “poor or working-class” will lack access to a vaccine.

coronavirus in michigan - SANDERS ADDRESSES MASSIVE CALIFORNIA CROWDS AT RALLIES AHEAD OF SUPER TUESDAY While President Trump has requested $2.5 billion to fight the coronavirus, Congress will clearly authorize far more funding, likely between $4 billion and $8.5 billion. In a joint statement released Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., specifically noted that any funding measure must ensure that “[v]accines are affordable and available to all that need it.”

coronavirus in michigan - There is no doubt that President Trump will happily accept additional funding and use whatever is required to assure that, regardless of the vaccine’s ultimate cost, it will be available to everyone, particularly those who are “poor and working-class”.  For humanitarian reasons alone, there is no acceptable alternative. Of course, developing, testing, producing and distributing an effective vaccine will be a difficult and uncertain process. The ultimate vaccine may be expensive. But, at this point, our main focus should be on developing an effective vaccine as quickly as possible to prevent or alleviate a worldwide pandemic regardless of the vaccine’s ultimate cost. While government has an important role in the process, we are primarily looking to the innovative energy of private sector companies to get that job done.
