I’ve been struck by the self absorption.
There are people who are acting like this has never happened before or that it is 100% about Donald Trump and the United States or that it is just another media hoax like the Russia conspiracy. Pandemics are the most predictable type of all natural disasters.
Note: Bill Gates isn’t wrong that a pandemic was bound to happen. He is right that we should have been preparing for it. Anyone can look at what happened with the Spanish Flu, which killed more Americans than all the wars of the 20th century combined, and draw that conclusion.
