There was a failure with how the US and the rest of the world handled this virus.

It was a failure of intelligence. The US with it's countless intelligence agencies were yet again caught completely off guard by this threat. Perhaps they were too busy looking for Russian collusion.

There is an undersecretary in the cabinet who has a responsibility for pandemic's where was he?

What makes the story even more grim, is let me respectfully submit to you that I was better informed than the President and most other world leaders

How can that be you say?

Did anyone here listen to the Peak Prosperity channel on You Tube? The Dr on that channel was broadcasting everyday updating on the virus when it was in China.

I saw as clear as night follows day that the virus was highly transmissible, would escape and that the Chinese govt was lying.

As a result I sold ALL my stocks two weeks prior to the crash and bought in again close to the bottom.

You could see this as early as January.

The South Koreans and the Taiwanese were not fooled by China's statements.
