How America Bungled the Plague        Video        NYT Opinion        NYT        29 September 2020

 

A year ago,

the United States was regarded as the country best prepared for a pandemic.

Our government had spent nearly two decades strategizing for a doomsday scenario.

So what went wrong?

How is it that America,

which wrote the global playbook for pandemic response,

accounts for just 4 percent of the world’s population

yet more than 20 percent of the world’s coronavirus deaths?

One of the most important functions of journalism

is to provide accountability, so in the video above,

Johnny Harris dives deep

into an exploration of what went wrong and when,

and who’s to blame and why.

Researchers say airborne transmission is possible,

especially in cramped indoor settings,

but it's unclear how much it contributes to the spread.

 

Here's how to lower your risks, just in case.

Donald Trump Isn't the Worst Covid President. Just Ask Brazilians.    NYT    15 July 2020

 

 

 

 

Donald Trump Isn't the Worst Covid President. Just Ask Brazilians.        Video        NYT Opinion        The New York Times        15 July 2020

 

Who’s the world’s worst leader at handling the pandemic?

Easy.

Donald Trump. Right?

Well, as terrible as Mr. Trump is,

a Brazilian YouTube star, Felipe Neto,

argues it’s actually his president, Jair Bolsonaro.

 

Presidents Trump and Bolsonaro

have long admired each other’s caustic styles of governance.

 

So it shouldn’t come as a surprise

that the United States and Brazil

are the only two countries in the world

with over a million confirmed cases of Covid-19.

 

It’s a tight race, and to be sure, neither government should be praised,

but the reckless denial by Brazilian leadership is appalling.

 

Mr. Neto is not normally one to comment on politics.

 

He usually sticks

to entertaining his 38 million followers on YouTube

with his comedic takes on pop culture.

 

But as the death toll mounts,

he’s become more outspoken.

 

And his message isn’t aimed only at Brazilians — it’s also for Americans.

Why is coronavirus still surging in the US?        Video        G        2 July 2020

 

The US recorded

a new all-time daily high of 52,000 new Covid-19 cases on 1 July,

according to John Hopkins figures,

as Donald Trump repeated his belief the virus would 'just disappear'.

 

America has now had more than 2.7 million confirmed case

- more than double that of Brazil, the second most-affected country.

 

Dr Anthony Fauci,

the US’s top infectious disease expert,

has said the country is 'going in the wrong direction',

infections could more than double

and the subsequent death toll 'is going to be very disturbing'.

 

The Guardian's Ed Pilkington

looks at why a patchwork approach to lifting lockdowns,

as well as the president's mixed messages on wearing a mask,

has led to confusion across the country

and why some states are having to clamp down on restrictions again

As scientists race to keep up

one of the big mysteries surrounding the disease

is where this virus originated.

 

While the evidence overwhelming points to wildlife,

reporter Emily Kwong with NPR's Short Wave podcast

explains how tracing the origins of a disease like COVID-19

could take years.

Why Do Some Health Care Workers Live in Poverty?        NYT        19 May 2020

 

 

 

 

Why Do Some Health Care Workers Live in Poverty?        Video        NYT Opinion        The New York Times        19 May 2020

 

It’s 3 a.m. and Kim Rockwood,

a health care worker, is driving to her patients’ homes

— even during the coronavirus pandemic —

to help them take medication or go to the bathroom.

 

She’s effectively on call 24/7.

 

Yet she can barely make ends meet.

 

As she explains in the above video,

she’s always on the clock,

and even though she loves her job,

she can’t afford her own health insurance.

 

Why is someone so vital to our health care system

scraping by on poverty wages?

 

Ms. Rockwood,

a certified nursing assistant in Worcester County, Mass.,

is not alone.

 

The average home care worker in America

makes just $16,200 a year.

 

Many of them would make

more on unemployment.

 

Someday, most of us will need supportive care.

Will there be any workers left when that time comes?

Working in Coronavirus: Why One Domino's Finally Gave its Workers P.P.E.        NYT        5 May 2010

 

 

 

 

Working in Coronavirus: Why One Domino's Finally Gave its Workers P.P.E.        Video        NYT Opinion        5 May 2010

 

Some workers, particularly Latino ones,

have never had the luxury of sheltering in place

during the coronavirus outbreak.

 

The country’s millions of fast food employees

can’t continue to ensure pizzas, pasta and salads make it to their destinations,

guaranteeing that both their customers and their families are fed,

by working from home.

 

These essential workers — most making minimum wage without health benefits —

have to fight for basic safeguards from the virus while their employers rake in profits.

 

For one group of Domino’s employees in Southern California,

the only option was to strike.

 

After a colleague came down with Covid-19,

they stopped working and insisted on protective gear,

hazard and quarantine pay, reimbursements,

their store being deep cleaned and being informed when co-workers are sick.

 

In a rare labor success story,

on May Day they won enough of these concessions

from their Domino’s franchise to return to work.

 

This victory is the exception, not the rule.

 

Workers around the country

are still fighting for proper safety equipment, cleaning supplies and sick pay

— even as they continue to feed millions of Americans each day.

Hospital Workers Are Dying From Coronavirus. Here's Why.        Video        NYT        NYT Opinion        7 April 2020

 

Health care professionals are still going to work each day

without sufficient masks, gloves, gowns and other supplies,

and are begging for proper personal protective equipment (P.P.E.).

 

In a country that spends more

on health care than anywhere else on the planet,

masks are being rationed or reused,

and some hospital workers

are even using novelty rain ponchos

to protect themselves.

 

Health care workers around the country

are falling ill and dying

— The Brooklyn Hospital Center estimated

a third of its doctors and nurses

are home sick with the virus.

 

Meanwhile, President Trump has openly accused

health care workers of being wasteful and hoarding masks.

 

In the above Op-Ed video,

nurses and physicians from around the country

are demanding that the government take aggressive action

to get them sufficient equipment. Right now.

Virus With Your Quarter Pounder?

Why McDonald's Needs to Guarantee Paid Sick Leave        NYT        20 March 2020

 

 

 

 

Virus With Your Quarter Pounder? Why McDonald's Needs to Guarantee Paid Sick Leave        Video        The New York Times        20 March 2020

 

One of McDonald’s values

is to “invest in all the people our success rests on.”

 

But in the video above,

a shift manager at a McDonald’s restaurant in Kansas City, Mo.,

asks why a company that earned $5.3 billion last year

can’t guarantee paid sick leave for all of its workers,

especially during the coronavirus outbreak.

 

And while the relief bill President Trum

 signed Wednesday night expands paid sick leave,

McDonald’s lobbied against parts of the legislation.

 

The new law only guarantees sick leave

to 20 percent of private-sector workers

— and many of the company’s franchise workers get nothing.

 

Would you want to get your next meal from a restaurant

where workers can’t stay home while sick?
