Wait for it: Federal response to coronavirus ignores established government expertise, operates “behind closed doors” favors large companies and “sows confusion”: NBC

This article by NBC discusses the administration’s response to the novel coronavirus in all its gory details.  It seems that the first son-in-law has been making personal contacts, reaching out to large companies with sources overseas, ignoring smaller companies that do all their manufacturing in the US, failing to show any transparency at all, un-necessarily contracting with private companies for airplane transportation of essential supplies when the Air Force could do the job just as well, and on and on.  The article is quite long and attempts to be more informative rather than accusatory, but you’ll get the point that the response is late and confused, while relying on personal contacts instead of long-established government expertise.

Read it and weep.
