I remember at the beginning with the cases in Seattle that...


Gov. Inslee had to deal with out of the gate? No one knew much about covid then. Later we learned one infected person introduced the virus in that one nursing home. How it spread from nursing home to nursing home like a wildfire was not known or understood. Residents were trapped in those homes unable to be moved BECAUSE no other facility would accept them! They couldn't go with family because of the infection threat to even more people, the spread would have been even worse. Inslee did all he could to protect those in the homes but many were dying in big numbers. Then cruise ships were not allowed to let people off and to go freely home. Canada finally took their citizens back for quarantine and they got a handle on it really quickly. They instituted lock downs earlier than the U.S. did.

Meanwhile, the ugly stories started aimed at Cuomo because he had to deal with the next serious outbreak, an entire town had to be cut off, and people begin to forget Inslee and Washington. The pandemic hit NYC hard and quick and then moved on, coming and going, and now months later it's still raging and is still out of control with the scary, killing, killing and killing with no end in sight. And no real plan to act on as Canada did. After all this time.
