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 We’re behind the curve because business profits don’t align with preparedness for national emergencies! Federal departments must control the manufacture and flow of PPE, ventilators and testing to the Public during Pandemics. Lack of testing and is a failure of Policy!

Crisis presents opportunity to work &think differently. Be part of the solution. Survive & Thrive

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce 500,000 masks coming to NY & Seattle Monday. That’s a start. We can’t wait a year for more, we need the Defense Production Act, allowing other businesses like the Automotive Industry, to repurpose to make medical equipment in quantity. They have the manpower and the factories. Set them up and we decrease our need for time spent idle.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce President refuses to invoke Law that would allow Corporations like GM to produce essential equipment. We wouldn’t have had a heath emergency, if he had listened to Scientists last year laying out the case for preparedness for Crimson Contagion , better known as Covid 19.Making essential equipment is stimulus for the entire country.
