Numerous months ago, commentators and political leaders were suggesting grandparents should die for the sake of the economy. Now, they’re providing the kids.
President Donald Trump has actually been bleating about resuming schools regardless of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, pointing to other nations that have done so as his lackeys dutifully applaud. Nevertheless, as Late Night host Seth Meyers mentioned, “that’s because [those countries] reduced their outbreak, you vicious sack of laundry.”
“ More than 130,000 have died, the country just set a record of almost 70,000 brand-new cases in one day, the state of Florida shattered the national record for new day-to-day cases with over 15,000, people are lining up for hours in the scorching heat just to get evaluated, frontline workers are again facing possible shortages of protective devices, patients are waiting hours in ambulances to get hospital beds, scientists are now alerting of a prospective wave of COVID-related brain damage, unemployment is still even worse than it’s been considering that the Great Depression as new claims keep pouring in, nearly a third of households missed their July real estate payments, as numerous as 28 million individuals are dealing with eviction by September, Americans are prohibited from travelling to Europe, and we can’t even consume Goya beans any longer,” said Meyers, counting the ways in which the U.S. is much, much worse off than the countries Trump is comparing it to.
According to Meyers, America’s complete and utter failure to manage the coronavirus pandemic has actually turned it into “a things of scary and humiliation throughout the world.” Pretending it remains in the same position as other countries would be operating on a lie, and will just make the scenario worse.
” We can’t simply decouple schools from the communities they’re in,” said Meyers. “If there are break outs all over, then schools are gon na have break outs too. Even in the very best of times schools are a breeding place for infections.”
Meyers even more blasted U.S. secretary of education Betsy DeVos for having no practical plan for keeping kids and instructors safe upon schools resuming. Rather, DeVos has soullessly parroted that “kids need to get back to school,” and suggested schools follow the example set by hospitals.
” We can’t even get protective devices for medical professionals and nurses, however you want schools to operate like health centers?” asked an incredulous Meyers. “Why not go even further and state schools should operate like astronauts?”
