All Of This Could Have Been Prevented: Author Max Brooks On COVID-19 (science audio).

March 27, 2020 | By | 1 Reply More

Apocalyptic genre novelist Max Brooks has researched planning for pandemics and other disasters for his novels. The author, whose books include World War Z, Germ Warfare and his forthcoming Devolution, has toured the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has reviewed government response plans related to various emergencies — all in the course of research.

“We have a network in place that we as taxpayers have been funding to get us ready for something just like this,” Brooks says of the U.S. response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, he claims, “we have been disastrously slow and disorganized from Day 1.”

Brooks also claims the notion that the U.S. government was blindsided by the pandemic is, “an onion of layered lies. What could have happened when this virus exploded — even when Wuhan was locked down — is we could have put the word out. The government could have put the word out to ramp up emergency supplies to get them ready and then have an information strategy in place.”
