Put a Competent Medical Professional in Charge of Coronavirus Outbreak. Get Pence Out!

Sign on to demand that U.S. Vice President Mike Pence steps down as the leader of the US response to coronavirus and an actual medical professional is appointed and given power instead. 

The mistakes are piling up and each one endangers the lives of actually people as well as causing more and more economic disruption. From the beginning, Trump has followed his usual brand of ignoring reality by minimizing the outbreak of the novel virus COVID-19 (commonly known as the coronavirus). 

In January he even refused the World Health Organization's (WHO) offer to send testing kits to us -- kits that have proven to be much-needed, since our own Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) botched their initial attempt to create kits, and have only just now begun rolling them out to healthcare providers. Then, Trump tried to control the virus's spread by limiting travel from China, but that was ineffective because the virus had already spread to multiple other countries. On top of that, US authorities did an inadequate (and sometimes non-existent) job of screening folks coming in from hot spots in other countries. All of this has meant the rapid community spread of the virus from American to American -- and it will get worse.

The scariest part of living in the US right now during a pandemic is that the people in charge are so obviously incapable of actually protecting us. They have made mistake upon mistake for months, all while spreading misinformation that has actively been hurting us. It's time to get some competent people in the room making decisions.
