Letter

Letters to the editor can be sent to Regional Executive Editor Eric Schwartz at eschwartz@yelmonline.com.

One of the president’s many failings in addressing the crisis of COVID-19 has been his inability to understand a simple but difficult reality: That we cannot address the economic crisis until we address the core public health crisis and actually get this virus under control with a national plan. 

As a retiree and senior with family members currently recovering from the coronavirus, I know how important that is.

Candidate for Congress Marilyn Strickland understands this. She has made this important point over and over. She’s laid out a common sense plan for addressing the virus: More research; boosting testing and making it free; more Personal Protective Equipment for first responders, health care and front line workers; and mandating that health insurance companies cover patient costs that have resulted from COVID-19. 

That’s the kind of vision, leadership and representation the people of the South Sound need in Congress.

Jan 9th,

THE VERY FIRST time China admits it's a novel (New) coronavirus. And they spout the People's Republic of China's talking point that it's not transmissible between humans.

https://www.who.int/.../09-01-2020-who-statement...

Jan 14 WHO to Reuters:

Well, maybe it's transmissible between humans...still no need to restrict travel.

https://www.reuters.com/.../who-says-new-china...

Later that same day, the WHO official Twitter posted this

https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1217043229427761152

No evidence transmissible between people (more Chinese Government party line)

WHO: too early to declare the coronavirus outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. "Make no mistake. This is an emergency in China, but it has not yet become a global health emergency. It may yet become one."
