Former Obama Official Says We Could Stop COVID Easy Peasy With Just A Few Steps

All we have to do is lock everyone down

US could ‘virtually eliminate’ coronavirus if ‘we decide to’, top Obama administration health official says

A top Obama administration health official has said the United States could “virtually eliminate” the coronavirus “any time we decide to” if the country were to take universal steps in controlling the virus.

Andy Slavitt, the former acting administrator of the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services under President Barack Obama, shared a 38-tweet thread about what the country could be doing during the pandemic. (snip)

A six-step “kitchen sink” plan was recommended by the health official. If the US implemented the six steps immediately, Mr Slavitt said it could be “with the goal of being open for business in October – meaning schools, in person voting, sports, everything”.

The plan would involve a 90 per cent lockdown instead of a 50 per cent lockdown, which is what the country implemented in March into April. It was only 50 per cent lockdown because not all states shut down and there were still a lot of essential employees going to work that would instead stay home.

Huh. Remember when People In Charge said the lockdowns before would stop it? Perhaps Andy could explain who provides food? Who provides healthcare? Yes, he recommends that health professionals stay home.

For how long? At least 2-3 weeks. Or is it 8 weeks?

By the end of the eight weeks, Mr Slavitt said the US would not be at zero cases, but instead there would be “embers” of the virus left behind. These “embers”, though, would be controllable by health officials in every area, as they would be able to quickly test, isolate, and trace the virus in each individual impacted.

Remember when they said masks were only for those who were sick, and the CDC didn’t update their guidance till May 30th? Most bars are still closed, most restaurants and churches had been closed. A lot of restaurants have never re-opened, and never will.

And then Government will have to step in to supply all the money to survive, because people are broke. But, hey, y’all have no problem being locked down at home for 3-8 weeks without having been convicted of a crime, right?

    Didn’t Trump try 4, but Governor Nipsy and Kaiser Wilhelm said, “Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to spread Shanghai Surprise”?

    Besides, 1 is a crock, we tried 2, 3 stops the economy, San Fiasco tried 5 and it was a mess, and 6 was Napoleon Fauci’s idea and he’s always wrong.

    That’s good!

    I am sure we will all be just fine without access to food, medicine, and human contact for 6-8 weeks. This is important enough to risk death to avoid spreading a disease that is harmless to most of the human population.
