Corona Virus Exposes The USA As Nothing But A Sh!th0le With Nukes

US health system is sh!t compared to other developed nations. It has been laid out in the open for the world to see that the US is nothing but just an overrated sh!th0le plagued by racism and huge gap between the haves and the have nots.

When the virus came, it found a country with serious underlying conditions, and it exploited them ruthlessly. Chronic ills—a corrupt political class, a sclerotic bureaucracy, a heartless economy, a divided and distracted public—had gone untreated for years.The US had learned to live, uncomfortably, with the symptoms. It took the scale and intimacy of a pandemic to expose their severity—to shock Americans with the recognition that we are in the high-risk category.

The crisis demanded a response that was swift, rational, and collective. The United States reacted instead like Yemen or Chile —like a country with shoddy infrastructure and a dysfunctional government whose leaders were too corrupt or stupid to head off mass suffering. The administration squandered two irretrievable months to prepare. From the president came willful blindness, scapegoating, boasts, and lies. From his mouthpieces, conspiracy theories and miracle cures. A few senators and corporate executives acted quickly—not to prevent the coming disaster, but to profit from it. When a government doctor tried to warn the public of the danger, the White House took the mic and politicized the message.

Every morning in the endless month of March, Americans woke up to find themselves citizens of a failed state. With no national plan—no coherent instructions at all—families, schools, and offices were left to decide on their own whether to shut down and take shelter. When test kits, masks, gowns, and ventilators were found to be in

Corruption in the US Health system is deep rooted.
Medicines are priced way up beyond the reach of the ordinary citizen who has to rely on paying medical insurance in order to get treatment.
And this is where the "kamuaring" comes in.
Expensive medicine and cosultations, unnecessary tests and surgeries and protection of Dr's due to malpractice, etc are not strange.
And this is what 254 has copied.

Pharmacies in the US are the size of supermarkets, every two blocks there is a major drug store. During lunch breaks some Njungus swallow about twenty tablets for real and imagined sicknesses. Hope COviD gets rid of them soon.

Walgreens, Walmart, CVS.

Walgreens have a total of 9,323 branches in the US, CVS has 9,054 branches, Walmart has 4,600 pharmacies in its stores where they also sell guns.

Drug companies in the US sell sickness on TV through Paid Advertisement. They tell you to Speak to your doctor if you have such and such symptoms because drug XYZ has shown to cure your sickness. Capitalism at its best. FVck America

These number of pharmacies is arbitrary. US is roughly half the size of Africa. If you count the number of pharmacies in 25 African countries, they will be the same as the US.
Also if you are dying of Corona, in critical condition, would one rather be thrown in New York-Presbyterian Hospital or Kenyatta Hospital.

Even so, Africans don't consume drugs like the Americans do. They also do unnecessary surgeries.

Drugs & Surgeries is tied to affordability. Go try showing your private insurance card at Agha Khan hospital and see what happens.
And have you looked at the life expectancy US vs Kenya.

My sister huja huku for dental work. A deep root canal costs $3000 in unyaided states . So she pays $1200 air ticket then $300 at most for the procedure. Total $1500. She ends up saving $1500 and still she has visited family members.

Yenyewe hapo you have stretched it a little. Kwani that drug is meant to resurrect the dead?

Specialists in infectious disease are protesting a gigantic overnight increase in the price of a 62-year-old drug that is the standard of care for treating a life-threatening parasitic infection.

The drug, called Daraprim, was acquired in August by Turing Pharmaceuticals, a start-up run by a former hedge fund manager. Turing immediately raised the price to $750 a tablet from $13.50, bringing the annual cost of treatment for some patients to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“What is it that they are doing differently that has led to this dramatic increase?” said Dr. Judith Aberg, the chief of the division of infectious diseases at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She said the price increase could force hospitals to use “alternative therapies that may not have the same efficacy.”

Turing’s price increase is not an isolated example. While most of the attention on pharmaceutical prices has been on new drugs for diseases like cancer, hepatitis C and high cholesterol, there is also growing concern about huge price increases on older drugs, some of them generic, that have long been mainstays of treatment.

Although some price increases have been caused by shortages, others have resulted from a business strategy of buying old neglected drugs and turning them into high-priced “specialty drugs.”

Cycloserine, a drug used to treat dangerous multidrug-resistant tuberculosis, was just increased in price to $10,800 for 30 pills from $500 after its acquisition by Rodelis Therapeutics. Scott Spencer, general manager of Rodelis, said the company needed to invest to make sure the supply of the drug remained reliable. He said the company provided the drug free to certain needy patients.

In August, two members of Congress investigating generic drug price increases wrote to Valeant Pharmaceuticals after that company acquired two heart drugs, Isuprel and Nitropress, from Marathon Pharmaceuticals and promptly raised their prices by 525 percent and 212 percent respectively. Marathon had acquired the drugs from another company in 2013 and had quintupled their prices, according to the lawmakers, Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, and Representative Elijah E. Cummings, Democrat of Maryland.

Doxycycline, an antibiotic, went from $20 a bottle in October 2013 to $1,849 by April 2014, according to the two lawmakers.
