Universal mask wearing, social distancing, appropriate hygiene and hand washing/sanitizing are proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to save lives. As a nation, we know how to prevent thousands of deaths, and to a disturbing degree, we’re not doing it.

It’s unbelievable. It’s stunning. It’s shocking. It’s absurd. It’s self-defeating. It’s stupid. It’s America.
