DORIA: Shocked at state of the world today

Posted 5/20/20

When talking to my Sun City West neighbors, fellow church members, local clubs and people from the surrounding area, I found that I was not alone in being shocked and dismayed that our local hospitals did not adequately have basic needs, such as gloves, masks, gowns, etc., stocked and ready to go for any eventuality.

DORIA: Shocked at state of the world today

Posted

When talking to my Sun City West neighbors, fellow church members, local clubs and people from the surrounding area, I found that I was not alone in being shocked and dismayed that our local hospitals did not adequately have basic needs, such as gloves, masks, gowns, etc., stocked and ready to go for any eventuality.

Through the years, we have had many epidemics, plagues, influenza of 1927, polio, flu, SARS, MERS, etc. Also, we are living in a nuclear world and inventions of bio germ warfare. We must be ready with more than a two-week supply. Storage needs could be met with a little ingenuity. There are many vacant buildings that could serve as emergency storage spaces.

We all salute the MDs, nurses and medical helpers. The criticism should go to the departments that are responsible for ordering supplies.

As residents, let us demand anticipation of disasters. Most mothers are aware that they should have a food storage to be ready for their children in case of emergency.

Come together, everyone! Demand the best, the right stuff!
