Though Republicans are often blamed for lagging Covid-19 vaccination rates, former President Donald Trump is blaming Democrats like Kamala Harris for any hesitancy, for “disparaging” the vaccines while he was president.
Our healthcare system is broken, a fact nobody would have disputed in precovid days. Regulatory capture is a reality, and the pharmaceutical industry is fraught with examples. Yet we trusted private-public partnerships to find an optimal solution to a global pandemic, assuming a crisis would bring out the best in historically corrupt institutions.
Though Trump's Operation Warp Speed increased Covid-19 vaccination distribution, The New York Times ran an opinion piece claiming Americans are "turning away a vaccine" because they're "slavishly devoted to Trump."
During an interview with Fox News Thursday morning former Assistant Secretary of Health Dr. Brett Giroir, a key figure in Operation Warp Speed, said investigators should not rule out the possibility Wuhan coronavirus was not only manipulated in a lab, but could be a Chinese Communist Party biological weapon.
