Coronavirus

Airtight

Trump's top economic adviser and member of the White House coronavirus task force, Larry Kudlow, claimed the regime had placed an "airtight" lid on the virus, but that is literally not true in one glaring case.

According to a whistleblower from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), when infected Americans were evacuated from Wuhan, China where the virus originated, they were greeted by workers with no protective gear and no training.

Officials at the Department of Health and Human Services sent more than a dozen workers to receive the first Americans evacuated from Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, without proper training for infection control or appropriate protective gear, according to a whistleblower complaint.

The workers did not show symptoms of infection and were not tested for the virus, according to lawyers for the whistleblower, a senior HHS official based in Washington who oversees workers at the Administration for Children and Families, a unit within HHS.

They literally weren't protected from the air, so I wouldn't call this "airtight."

The whistleblower says she was reassigned to a different position after raising safety concerns about the team exposing themselves and potentially others they come into contact with.

It may turn out that these workers weren't infected, but they easily could have been. This is exactly the kind of bungled response we've come to expect from the Trump regime that could lead to a wider outbreak.
