This is a story I've been wanting to understand.
Back when the Pandemic was at it's worse I had elder Parents with Surgeries planned. We all tracked the numbers on the CDC sites trying to decide if to proceed and if so the best Hospital. As this Pandemic started and developed it was easy to see from the stats that if you had it you seriously wanted to be in one of 2 places Washington State or Michigan. It was obvious they where doing something differently than what was happening elsewhere.

How did CDC fail us so badly? Well, this film summarizes it neatly. They spurn testing made available by a German country because of "Use USA" mindset. Having an ethnocentric mindset for a global pandemic proved a fatal mistake - in the millions. The FDA's ridiculous 20+ page application for a cutting edge response to COVID during the early months proved to be the fatal red tape bureaucratic mistake - costing millions of lives. Our government - funded out of taxes on our hard earned money fail us repeatedly - FEMA in Katrina, and CDC in COVIS. CDC's lack of willingness to work collaboratively not only within US private and public sectors but as well as other countries were paid by American lives. This film provides insight into why US ended up having the highest COVID fatalities at one point.
