Inaction by the American authorities cost 54,000 lives that could have been saved

They could have prevented 54,000 deaths if they’d started two weeks earlier.

That’s what Columbia University scientists believe. Under the guidance of infectionist Jeffrey Shaman, they have developed a computer model that, in their opinion, makes it possible to assess the effect of the measures introduced in the U.S. to prevent the spread of the virus. The researchers say that by May 3 in the U.S. from the disease caused by coronavirus, 65 307 people died.

In total, a week could have saved 36 thousand people. And if they had started earlier, 54,000 people wouldn’t have died.

But the White House continues to blame China. They’ll never admit that the authorities brought the country to its present state by themselves. It’s unfortunate that the cost of their mistakes was human lives.
