Imagine if we had a pandemic and 350,000 kids died of that virus....

437,000 Covid deaths in the US... so far. Heading toward over 600,000, according to the IHME. About 350,000 of those are in people over 55, with the greatest number over 70.

Imagine if we had a pandemic that killed 350,000 kids, and the age of victims was primarily under 15, with the numbers skewing toward those under 10.
Too awful to contemplate.

This will not be our last pandemic. We MUST develop plans, and the ability to implement those plans. We MUST have the infrastructure in place the next time, and ready to go. That includes dealing with deniers and other threats to public health.

Even Dubya had a plan, Obama had a plan, and now Biden has a plan. We have got to pressure our government to institutionalize those plans so that an inept President can't drop the ball the way trump did.

Coronaviruses will be around for quite a while. As an older person, Iím ok about this. But the young people, the grandkids, it truly breaks my heart ❤️
