It was predictable that the numbers would drop.

The vaccine rollout in the U.S. has been marked by disarray and confusion, with states complaining in recent days about shortages and inadequate deliveries that have forced them to cancel mass vaccination events and tens of thousands of appointments.

and these are the people that want to run healthcare.

You're right. Trump and his ilk should never be allowed to form healthcare policy ever again. Glad we can agree on something, because it was his 'hands off' disorganized approach that let to the above disarray and confusion.

The article said in recent days. Not two weeks ago, not last month. The disarray and confusion and shortages are happening now under Biden’s watch.

You do realize that Joe Biden was inaugurated only 5 days ago, correct? Now, taking into account that this was written at least a day ago, with quotes mined at least one day to a week before that... yeah, we know who's responsible for the disarray and confusion.

The Biden admin is trying to fix what was left behind, but in pandemic timelines they're coming in at the bottom of the ninth, already down runs and an out or two.

The majority of Americans willing and able to reason at even a basic level are well aware Trump's admin has left a huge mess for Biden's people to clean up.

That many Trump supporters har har at the messes Trump's leaving and the damage he's done to the country is just another indication Trump's Republicans care nothing about the country. For them it remains Trump uber alles.

Gee, and here I thought the new establishment has a "plan" and everything will be A-OK now.

In the event. his "plan" seems to be riding on Trumps accelerated vaccine program, plus a mask mandate for federal property.

Today, the official number of virus infected has just crossed 100,000,000, that is 0.1 billion out of 7.8 billion people in the world -- 1 in 78.

While there is a new sign of dropping in both the numbers of infected and death worldwide, many countries are heating up in their race to fight the emergence of new variants. Could it be a vicious cycle? No place or time for complacency yet. Stay vigilant, always..

Funny coming from a poster that has cheered every single one of Trump’stravel band.

Actually I am just pointing out Biden’s hypocrisy- not criticizing the policy itself. If there is a new more deadly strain all nations should be taking precautions. Unfortunately Joe Biden’s first inclination was politicization. When Biden’s comrade President Xi lashed out at the China travel ban at the onset of the pandemic, Biden said he was xenophobic and implied anti-Asian bias, just as Xi did. So if Biden does the same thing - well, it must be xenophobic. The guy has a sketchy past when it comes to race relations.
