    Yes, covid-19 will overwhelm the privatized for profit US health care system. As is, we pay double what every other developed nation pays for health care for worse results.

    Given that context hundreds if not thousands of Americans will die from covid-19 needlessly.

    What ever could be done to improve US healthcare? (sarcasm)
