It’s Not Like They Didn’t Know

  I wrote here a few days ago about how the incoming Trump Administration disbanded the White House’s National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense, slashed CDC funding — and basically dismantling its entire infrastructure and firing its in-house expertise for dealing with a global pandemic.
