Letter: Will we be ready the next time?

Now that the covid 19 vaccine(s) are being approved by the FDA and distributed throughout the US, the question arises, what happens next time? And there will be a next time.

Since the Communist Chinese uploaded this virus into our country, the federal government including Lord Fauci and the National Institute of Health, the CDC and mainstream media have done nothing to educate nationally the population about the personal responsibility of citizens to help protect us from the next virus.

We have crossed the 300,000 death toll from this virus on our way to getting close to the 650,000 deaths from heart disease every year.

42% of the US population have a body mass index above 30 or classified as obese. Underlying conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and hypertension in the older more vulnerable population are five times more likely to have an unfavorable outcome from contracting Covid 19 according to the CDC.

So where is the federal education programs for a healthy lifestyle and improving the individual immune systems? We as a nation are setting ourselves up for a repeat performance and because of what, woke politics, political correctness?

By contrast, India with a population of 1.3 billion or roughly 4 times the population of the US, has a population with a body mass index of 6% — 36% lower than ours. The death toll in India from Covid is 144,000.

By changing to a more healthy lifestyle, we as a nation can prepare ourselves through personal responsibility for the next time.
