very low figure. How poor the American health
care system is, if they treat people in tents. It
is a shame and disgrace. My naive hope for a
pandemic, was that governments would start
paying more attention to strengthening their
national health systems. That's logical, isn't
it ? For decades, we have seen the decline
in the number of hospitals, beds per capita

quality medical care is, especially free

increase military budgets and cut
funding for health systems. They
are ready to lose a huge part of
the budget due to lockdowns...
but still do not care about their
