Dr. For Amy Acton, the epidemic of coronovirus is equivalent to the public health of the Titanic, and not all Ohioans will end up on a lifeboat.
Acton, a former director of the Ohio Department of Health, said, “You can’t change Titanic at once.” “So, we’re going down. It’s some amount to go down, so let’s minimize the amount.”
When the epidemic first struck Ohio, Acton, and epidemiologists at Ohio State University, the state predicted that about 10,000 new COVID-19 infections might eventually be reported per day.
Those estimates were never understood during Acton’s tenure, leading to harsh criticism for the former health director. About eight months later, however, Ohio surpassed Acton’s launch, with 11,885 new cases reported on Monday.
“We don’t have a curve to level right now. It’s too bad: Acton said,” We’re going to face a moment here, I think it’s going to peak within the next two weeks. … we see that there is a humanitarian crisis on our own soil. “
