Another coronavirus concern

With the coronavirus most likely on its way to the Roaring Fork Valley, there’s something that I haven’t heard from the media. Since most of us know someone or are themselves uninsured or under-insured and cannot afford medical care, how many people will show symptoms of the virus, pass it off as a cold and avoid going to the doctor? This situation, which is unique to the U.S., will likely accelerate the speed of the outbreak in this country.

A single-payer health care system would make sure that everyone could see a doctor whenever they need to. This is another reason why “Medicare for All” would benefit all Americans.

Vote for Medicare for All.
