Now he says there’s nothing to be done to change the trajectory of the virus.
That was true before the vaccines were ready, it is not now. He can change the trajectory, but will he?I’ll even give him instructions
- Get the AstraZenica and Johnson&Johnson vaccines into use. We know enough about them to do it immediately. That will almost double the rate of delivery.
- Require all states to vaccinate 65 and up first to get their full ration of vaccines. That will change things very quickly.
The crisis right now is overwhelming the hospitals. They are not full of people under 40.
We have very effective therapeutics now but they aren’t being used because the hospitals are overwhelmed with patients already seriously ill. The problem is that they must be given very early and by infusion which requires resources the hospitals do not have now.
Stop the elders from filling the hospitals by vaccination and not only are they saved, but the resources needed to save the younger high risk patients are freed up.
Biden can stop the dying by the end of February, but will he do it?
