A 2019 study found that the United States is the best-prepared country to handle a pandemic.
The Nuclear Threat Initiative and the John Hopkins Center for Health Security released the study in October.
“Johns Hopkins, highly respected, … they did a study, comprehensive, the countries best and worst prepared for an epidemic,” Trump said in the White House briefing room this week. “And the United States, we’re rated No. 1.”
The team compiled 140 questions and 34 indicators for each country. On a scale to 100, the average score of every country was 40.2.
In comparison, the U.S. scored 83.5 and ranked No. 1 in five of six categories, including prevention, early detection and reporting, rapid response and mitigation, sufficient and robust health system, compliance with international norms. In the category of overall risk environment and vulnerability to biological threats, the U.S. ranked No. 19.
“COVID-19 is the latest global reminder of the power of infectious disease outbreaks to cause significant harm to health, peace, and prosperity if countries are not adequately prepared,” said Jennifer Nuzzo, a senior scholar at the Center for Health Security and one of the co-authors of the preparedness study. “It is important that national leaders recognize these threats and commit to increasing and sustaining countries’ capacities to prevent, detect, and respond to these events.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
