I heard a quote last week regarding people in the current administration.. “Even if they wanted to do the right thing, they just don’t have the bandwidth”.
I don't know if that's accurate, but it certainly wouldn't be surprising if it was. It has been an on-going story that this administration has left literally thousands of positions open in the federal government.
As for comparing it to the 1918 pandemic, it is not even close, yet. Will it be? It seems unlikely, but only time will tell.
