In a recent letter to the editor (The Daily News, May 20, K.D. Slade stated, "We have had pandemics in the past, but they didn't turn into a health and economic crisis because previous presidents sent medical teams to the countries where and when the pandemics started to begin work on treatments before the pandemics hit America."
