🤨🦠Are Americans Too Arrogant to Stop the COVID-19 Virus?
Dr Anthony Fauci has been quoted in the media saying that the reason COVID is running rampant in the US with no hope of stopping it is that there are mixed messages all around the country and that US citizens will not do the simple things such as avoiding crowds, wearing masks and physical distancing.
It appears that during the election campaign and before Donald Trump would not convince Americans that the simple things above that worked in other parts of the world to at least put the brakes on the virus. Donald Trump would not lock down the country to ensure the economy stayed operating. The President of the United States put dollars ahead of peoples lives and then he wonders why he lost the election.
Are Americans too arrogant to do the simple things to save lives and stop the virus?
Maybe due to arrogance of the leaders, it has also contributed to the outspilling of pandemic in the US.
Trump is arrogant no doubt, but, i think him alone is not doing everything in the US. The Americans have health Minister whose job is to see the well being of US people and the masses as well, they are not happing the government to curtail the spread of the COVID-19,i.e Americans are arrogant to honor and accept simple instruction.
Yes Mr Kenneth, the treatment of the covid19 is not Trump’s problem, it is a matter of the country and all country’s leaders should take their responsibilities to find the solution of the problem.
All Americans share the blame.I was very surprised when Corona virus was at top and many Americans were demonstrating on streets in the name of defending human rights.They are still dying and they have the highest incident rate for the disease in the world.
Hi, Edward that is a great observation from you.
However, I think that is not the case for the US. In Indonesia, people are not as disciplined as those in the US. I think the compliance behaviour of Indonesians is not far better than Americans. Also, the US population is only 80million more people than in Indonesia. But the infection rate, as well as the death rate, is much lower in Indonesia.
Does Indonesian people more discipline than those in the US in term of complying to healthy behaviour? I don’t think so. Also, the health system in the US more advanced than that of Indonesia.
It means that the cause is deeper than that, Edward.
Citizens of every is arrogant, but, when government perform their duties of enforcement, then citizens will summit and behave aright.
USA is a country that upholds freedom, dares to face challenges at any risk it will bear. With this mental attitude they tend to be the pioneers of progress. In dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic they also face it with this mental attitude. Later innovations will emerge from there.
Which Innovations ,their deaths rate has continued to increase while othe countries figures are reducing.
Statistics are still running. Later we will see which countries are the winners and the losers.
I don’t think Americans are arrogant, but I think they have just been misled by those in leadership. There has not been any effort from leadership to fight to fight the spread of Covid19
Currently USA has the highest deaths in the world .For the last 2 days 25 % of Corona deaths are from USA.India death rate is relatively low compared to one who is assumed to be a super power in the world.Elections were finished for about a month ago by now the government should be registering few numbers.
They have underestimated people’s life, As the biggest and powerful country in the world, they shouldn’t accept such shame. They should do everything to prevent their citizens from the pandemic.
So, the leaders themselves are arrogant to have allowed covid to spread and increase day by day
It’s the same in my country, Indonesia. I see people too ignore the dangers of this disease. People still do a lot of ignorance that can trigger Covid 19. Many people in my region ignore health protocols because they don’t believe this disease exists. It’s sad to see these people. I hope that the arrival of a vaccine in my country can stop this pandemic soon.
