One of the problems in a time of crisis is that panic leads to anxiety and anxiety leads to the spread of bad information. Some of that bad information, pushed by leading Democrats including presidential contender Joe Biden, is that the U.S wasn’t prepared for a major health crisis. This simply wasn’t the case according to the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS). They said in a joint report with the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) that the United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic. The report is called the Global Health Security Index and was “developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries.” So even as we face COVID-19, we’re better prepared than any other country in the world.
