How the U.S. Failed on Covid-19

Harvard social epidemiologist Nancy Krieger spoke to Elemental about the country’s bungling of the pandemic and what went wrong. Krieger says:

“The United States has phenomenal resources available to some people with regard to biomedical advances, but the U.S. also leads, among industrialized nations, in the number of people who are uninsured. We can say the U.S. leads in terms of biomedical technology and expertise, but in terms of actual access of the population to health care itself, the U.S. does not lead — it falls way, way behind.”
