Covid-19 Uptick

Record New Covid-19 Cases
Record # of new cases
A daily world record in the number of new cases.

My prediction is that there will be many more Covid-19 diagnoses in the upcoming days. Americans of all hues and beliefs enjoy their families. We have several landmark American holidays on the horizon. Because of these holidays and people not fully understanding the spread of Covid, I predict A colossal spike in new covid-19 cases, so much so I fear massive closure of schools across the country again.  We are in desperate need of leadership in the United States.  Our students are already being left behind.  The students have already lost a year of learning.  The impact on poor and disenfranchised students may be one that is insurmountable.

The mainstream media is no longer talking about conditions. The Covid task force between the governors and the vice-president Mike Pence has not met consistently in months. This call for leadership isn’t a partisan play. It’s life or death for some of us.

America Needs Leadership

Moreover, the current president has ostracized Dr. Anthony Fauci. Many of us believe the science. We need to hear expert voices to Remain calm. There is currently a disconnect in how we should address this pandemic. Will there be another shutdown if Biden is elected? I’m not sure which direction we should move, but I know we need leadership and accountability. Our students have already lost a year of learning and comprehension. If you work in schools with the most vulnerable learners, you’d understand the urgency to get schools reopened. Reopened under safe conditions where parents feel safe to send their students to school, and teachers feel safe to work at schools. I can’t underscore the importance of getting this disease under control to heal as a country.

Covid-19 is Omni-Partisan

Regardless of whoever The president is, we need a plan. We need to hold our elected officials accountable and force them to implement said plan with fidelity. Covid-19 is an Omni-partisan disease that is killing Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats, Independents, and Kanye supporters at the same rates. We need to finally and effectively address Covid-19.  With over 240k deaths, Covid-19 has proven its realness.
