Biden COVID Adviser: Americans Should Have ‘Sacrificed A Little Bit’ More during Pandemic:
During a Monday appearance on CBS This Morning, former Biden White House senior adviser for COVID Response Andy Slavitt suggested that Americans should have “sacrificed a little bit” more during the pandemic.
When host Tony Dokoupil asked how much of the crisis was preventable, Slavitt blamed the policies of the Trump administration and citizens generally for not forfeiting more personal conveniences and liberties for public health and a common national purpose.
“If we’re honest, we also made two other types of mistakes that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing of dissent and playing on divisions,” he said. --->READ MORE HERE
More than 600K people have died from COVID-19 in US:
The United States surpassed more than 600,000 deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, data shows.
The grim figure comes as vaccination efforts have helped to bring the daily death count from more than 3,000 at the peak in January to about 360 on Sunday, according to a seven-day average by Johns Hopkins University.
Earlier this winter, 3,000 Americans were dying per day of COVID-19.
The United States hit the tragic milestone of 600,000 COVID deaths on June 15, 2021.
The slowing pace of deaths was also evident in the fact it took nearly four months to make the jump from 500,000 to 600,000.
The country previously went from 400,000 to 500,000 deaths in just 35 days. --->READ MORE HERE
