Where are the psychologists on Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force?
One of the biggest problems is the cure maybe worse than the disease.
At every press conference we here about how great the president is doing in combating the CCP Coronavirus. I personally believe the president has done
the best anyone could expect looking at it purely from a virologist perspective.
The experts around Trump and most media outlets were claiming this virus wasn’t going to be much in the US up until late February and early March.
Even with the low expectations originally coming from most experts Trump took actions that were widely criticized.
But Trump failed by not bringing in industry expert psychologists who could weigh the potential risks of shutting down the country.
I think it should have been in the debate from the beginning. What is happening to the people who lost their jobs? What is the likelihood that all
this stress will result in Suicide, Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, Heart complications from stress, anxiety and depression
that will completely alter the lives of those who lose everything?
Where are the psychological models that predict the answers to these questions? Why was the psychological impact never considered?
How many lives will be lost to shutting down the country? Was there a balance that could have been struck that would have minimized the risk of death
from psychological trauma while still working to combat deaths from the CCP Coronavirus?
If Trump really cares about the US people isn’t it time, or past the time, to bring in the worlds best psychologists to help mitigate the deaths
that will be attributed to this pandemic for those whose lives were destroyed in the process?
I am not an expert so I have no idea what the answer to my questions are. But I do know that we desperately need these questions answered now. If
lives really matter the psychological issues need to be addressed before the cure really is worse than the disease.
