No one learns from anyone in the pandemic. SARS2 is a bad germ.

Exhibit 1:

NY Mayor deBlasio March 5: ““I’m here to say people have nothing to fear, go about your lives.”  https://www.nydailynews.com/coronavirus/ny-coronavirus-bill-de-blasio-coronavirus-subway-20200305-vmjdxjudbndlrjekashqs3hfou-story.html 

NY Mayor deBlasio March 22: “The worst is yet to come.”  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/22/nyregion/Coronavirus-new-York-epicenter.html 

Do these politicians read? Can they actually lead?

Exhibit 2:

TX Governor Abbot June 25: “We can protect Texans’ lives.”  https://www.texastribune.org/2020/06/25/texas-coronavirus-cases-greg-abbott-open/ 

TX Governor Abbot July 10: “The worst is yet to come”  https://www.texastribune.org/2020/07/10/greg-abbott-shutdown-texas-mask-order/
