‘They’re not really doing anything’: As Covid-19 cases spiral, leaders around the U.S. lose urgency on prevention

Article by Andrew Joseph published online at STATNews.com November 9, 2020.

Everyone is talking about the big vaccine news. Not me. The idea that a vaccine is the cavalry we have been waiting to ride over the hill and rescue us is a very wrong-headed and destructive idea. A national case of “waiting for Godot.” The big story, in my view, is not the vaccine efficacy data (which is still a long way from settled) but the fact that state and federal leaders are not taking action to curb the most recent explosion of cases. This article is the real news that matters.


Today’s bite-sized, handpicked selection of important news, information or science for all who want to know where this epidemic is going and what we should do.
