A Daily Update from Andy Slavitt

Here’s what the former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services says about the current Covid-19 pandemic

An update from Andy Slavitt, former head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services: “You’ve heard it 1,000 times but it’s still true. It’s going to get worse before it gets better. It’s true no matter what because of the lag time between onset-symptoms-hospitalizations (almost a month), latent government action, and our lack of preparation.”
