Nothing Says Pandemic Mitigation Like Opening The Border And Pausing Deportations

 Read the National Strategy for the COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness White House. 

The goals and their ordering are not encouraging. Particularly not liking the choice of Goal 1, the lack of any clear commitment to financial support, and the continuing emphasis on Magic Covid Vaccines without pursuit of treatments like Ivermectin and others:
Goal One: Restore trust with the American people

Goal Two: Mount a safe, effective, equitable vaccination campaign

Goal Three: Mitigate spread through expanding masking, testing, data, treatment, workforce, and clear public health standards

Goal Four: Immediately expand emergency relief and exercise the Defense Production Act

Goal Five: Safely reopen schools, businesses, and travel while protecting workers

Goal Six: Protect those most at risk and advance equity, including across racial, ethnic and rural/urban lines

Goal Seven: Restore U.S. leadership globally, advance health security, and build better preparedness for future threats
