AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Cassandra , Bill Gates we’re right. There is no testing and no plan. There 30 million unemployed. How & when do we reopen? I’m not looking forward to years in lockdown. I blame Trump & TrumpsGOP for a lack of planning to save our lives & the Economy. Vietnam destroyed LBJ. Today’s Billionaire & upper classes can escape, leaving the rest of us unseen. That’s not acceptable to me! You?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce We’ve created Pandemics by interfering in natural habitats, our encroachment on wildlife & nature have produced a “perfect storm” for Pandemic. Covid 19 is not a once only occurrence, unless we reassess our relationship with natural resources.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/apr/27/halt-destruction-nature-worse-pandemics-top-scientists published on Monday, with Dr Peter Daszak, who is preparing the next IPBES assessment, they write: “Rampant deforestation, uncontrolled expansion of agriculture, intensive farming, mining and infrastructure development, as well as the exploitation of wild species have created a ‘perfect storm’ for the spillover of diseases.”

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Planning for Climate Mitigation would have been preferred, however, we were determined to plunder nature and have unleashed a Pandemic. Will we have the will to wean ourselves off fossil fuels? Will China close Wild Markets? Can we meet the needs of our people by staying the course, or must we be disruptive to increase spending on Healthcare, Education, connectedness & infrastructure! Opportunity Knocks, we haven’t turned The tide on Global warming, yet

Can we open the Economy? Not until we have almost a Billion tests for our population. We have to keep people safe and maintain social distancing in life & the workplace. Otherwise, we’ll have many waves of this virus. Be safe. Think Big! & we’ll survive & thrive. … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce #EPI #25 Trump Strikes OUT!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Why is America joining Russia and ignoring a UN plea for a Universal ceasefire at this time? No country has a greater priority than maintaining the health of their peopke. That means we are mandated to provide food, clean air, clean water & food to all our citizens. War creates refugees & refugees are a breeding ground for contagion. Protect all people and we’ll all live to plan a better life!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Delhi, another polluted city , in a Country that takes 3 rd place, behind China & USA , breathes clean air for the first time in decades. Prior to the Pandemic, particles were at 900 and now they’re at 20? Does anyone want to go back to the old ways. The time to transition to cleaner healthier air is now. Let’s not forget, viruses are carried by pollutants too! Also, underlying asthma makes you more susceptible to a Covid 19 infection. Worldwide heealth & healthcare will become a priority along with lower Carbon Emissions. There is a direct correlation between them!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce All about our Pandemic. Did you know George Bush started Pandemic preparedness in 2005 & handed the info to Obama? Italy’s finally seeing less contagion. The Governors & Mayors are quite angry with Trumps response to Corona Virus. They all believe there should be a National Stockpiling of viral equipment and procedures in place to deal with Pandemics. The States are not happy being told to “fend” for themselves & competing over limited resources.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Ford & GM on war footing to make ventilators. No need to worry when they’ll arrive. If NYC peaks shortly, the rest of the Country won’t peak till mid May. Also, perhaps they’ll re engineer them & make them easier to assemble, them they’ll be available for the next Pandemic. Glad they’re involved!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Bill Gates was prescient in 2015, when he devoted resources to a platform to study Pandemics. Now he’s spearheading a Covid Accelerator to speed the understanding for the virus. We need Large scale Mational work on prevention of future Pandemics. We can’t afford not to test a population for viral contagion, not can we be isolated from the Global Community. We can learn from each other. Test, trace the spread, use protective gear & plan for a future that can’t respond adequately to just in time methodologies. We need Prevention and that takes allocation of funding to the CDC , pharmaceuticals, & testing labs. A healthy population is most productive.
