The US lack of a coherent strategy to deal with the Covid crisis is showing its repercussions now.

The cumulative effect of the million deaths, millions of infected people, unemployment, bankruptcies, and failed businesses have taken their toll in the US economy. Any argument to the contrary does not have the facts on its side.
