Two hundred and sixty-five years ago, the United States suffered a pandemic that caused the deaths of millions.
Now, a new study finds that the country is losing ground to its rivals as we struggle to find a way to contain the deadly pandemic.
As a result, the country faces a choice: increase the amount of time spent in hospitals and clinics to treat the pandemic’s effects, or ration health care for everyone, including those who don’t need it.
If we fail to act soon, it’s possible that millions of Americans will die in the next few weeks.
The problem, as we all know, is not just that we’re dealing with a massive pandemic but that we have been unable to effectively address the underlying causes of it.
The pandemic has been devastating for the country.
While there are still many good things in life, the pandemics devastating impact has also left millions of people vulnerable to losing their lives.
The new study is an effort to shed light on how to address this problem, which has been largely ignored in the debate about health care reform.
This study is part of a broader effort to examine how to improve the way we solve complex problems in health care.
