After weeks of being of a frontline worker and survivor of COVID-19 (I did get sick), I question the federal government ethics. Webster defines ethics as the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group. It is the most unethical and absurd time in American history. I understand it is a novel virus; however, we the people deserve better. President Donald Trump, members of his administration, and several Republicans have bolster medications and treatment regimens that have caused death and or stayed silent, which is a form of agreeing. However, there is no accountability for President Trump, his administration, and elected members of the government that have forced healthcare providers to medications and treatment or chosen to remain silent. Under President Donald J.Trump administration hospitals, nursing homes, state and federal government, and international government are competing with each other for personal protective equipment.
As healthcare providers and frontline defenders, we must be honest and demand the truth. It is not okay not to have access to personal protective equipment. It is not okay that people are dying. It is not okay that we are not working together internationally to help fight this virus and find a cure. It is not okay President Trump is running the government as an episode on the apprentice. It not okay millions of Americans are unemployed. It is not okay; the economy is in a recession. I challenge myself and every person reading this to demand better from their government. Before someone criticizes what I wrote, let me make it clear, I love being an American citizen. I respect and honor the words of the constitution of the United Staes of America "We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." How will history define this moment when defenders to the constitution have remained silent? What is the ethos of the government under Covid-19 when over 100,000 people died in America?
