In the end, it comes down to individual Health Departments being up to task

as someone who works on the ground floor, I’m willing to surmise that most are not. It is way too late in the game to fix that problem. Where are you going to suddenly find thousands of people with motivation and brains when they never existed in the first place? Sorry for the cynicism but I’m a doctor in a town of 30,000. There is not a ton of brain power in the medical community in this setting anymore. Maybe big cities are different, but I have my doubts. Deeply thoughtful people like you do not make up small town medical communities. If we could clone like 10,000 of you and staff Health Departments that way, we would be fine. You don’t have 10,000 clones out there, do you?
