Oh, it was always going to be like this in the US. See what I wrote here on February 29, 2020:
I suspect Covid-19 will likely reveal America’s true status as the world’s richest Third World nation as we’ll be completely unable to deal with the disease and its consequences.
Was I right or was I right? (I was right.)
I wish I had been wrong. I’d rather been revealed as an utter dumbass than what’s happening now.
