By Paolo Gulisano (translation by Angelo Bottone)
The current Covid-19 pandemic has become an extraordinary opportunity for the dissemination of the culture of death. This is happening on a world-wide scale.
In the United States, which were incomprehensibly caught “by surprise” by the arrival of the virus, many states have already announced that the cures for the Coronavirus will not be accessible to all, and those who will suffer most will be the disabled.
In Tennessee, those affected by spinal muscular atrophy will be excluded, while in Minnesota the range of people who won’t have a right to a respirator includes those with lung diseases, congestive heart failure and liver cirrhosis.
In other states such as New York, Michigan, Washington, Alabama, Utah, Colorado and Oregon, doctors have to evaluate the level of physical and intellectual ability before acting to save a life.
What is the reason for these decisions? There is not sufficient means and equipment for everyone. One wonders how the United States, after having seen this epidemic spreading since the beginning of January, did not adequately equip themselves by increasing the production of respirators and other useful technical instruments, and also by preparing their hospitals so that no citizen would lack assistance.
If, on the one hand, it seems that almost every country in the world, with a few exceptions, has not prepared a valid National Pandemic Plan as suggested by the World Health Organisation since 2009, on the other hand they were ready with eugenic measures to be used with the most fragile people, who will be the main victims of this pandemic.
If continues here.
