As the number of deaths in the United States continues to rise due to Covid-I, health authorities across the country are still preparing to attack new patients even as they continue to fight for their understanding.
“We are asking the American public to be prepared to anticipate the worst,” said Nancy Messonier, a CDC spokeswoman last week.
Researchers say that the US health care system can make the outbreak worse. “We don’t really have a system in place,” says Lynn Plawitt, a professor of health policy and management at the University of Minnesota, a professor of health policy and management at the University of Minnesota.
He says that the term “system” has a unified plan, and that the mix of public and private care providers and the millions of uninsured people who today set American medicine apart is not mixed.
According to recent statistics, about 28 million people under the age of 65 have no public or private insurance in the United States – a figure that has been increasing every year since 2016.
That means “they have no routine access to our healthcare delivery system,” Bliwet says.
He says this is a major drawback, because it means that even if an outbreak occurs, people with symptoms will probably avoid seeing a doctor until they become serious about the costs they can’t cover.
Even if they see a physician, they may not have a preening relationship that allows them to care for quality.
Even those who have private insurance, perhaps through an employer, say: “… care costs have become unnecessary.”
According to my research which looked at pocket spending in all fifty states in 2018, the average annual subscription value for those with insurance was 3,300.
All of this creates a “perfect storm” during the outbreak, said Sandra Quinn, senior associate director of the University of Maryland Health Equity Center at the University of Maryland.
Quinn studies how the disease affects the epidemic. The terms of the healthcare system in the United States mean that a major disease, such as COVID-1 or H1N1, that you have studied in 20, reveals all the gaps.
He said that the congressional system is not ready to tackle the spread of new infections so that Congress has to make the decision to reduce the supply of protective equipment to hospitals and take such measures to cover the cost of COVID-19.
COVID-19 presents a particular problem because most people who develop it have mild symptoms, which are easy to ignore unless you have the resources to see a doctor or stay at home – which increases the chances of the virus spreading to society.
As a result of all of this, “those who suffer from health disparities will suffer the most,” he said.
His research and many others have given us a clearer picture of the people affected by these differences
Many of them are non-white, meaning they are subjected to institutional racism and many of them suffer from chronic conditions or other disabilities.
They often provide staffing services in the food, hospitality or healthcare sectors – jobs that require regular contact with the public
They are also people whose jobs might mean self-sufficiency, as the CDC advises with COVID-19.
Because of this, they are “precisely the kind of people … who want to get sick leave,” said Corey White, a professor of economics at Cali Pauley, a health educator.
He states that the United States is not the only industrialized nation that has been granted sick leave by the federal government, but cities and states across the country have implemented their own sick leave policies, allowing researchers like him to see how this can happen if the entire country does so. .
In a study published in 2018, White and an author looked at how much time was spent on all employees of the state by sick leave representatives from Washington DC and Connecticut.
When the sick leave state was issued, they were significantly reduced in the total vacation amount.
“Public health has this outward appearance,” White says. Basically, when patients can stay home and improve, the disease is less prevalent, so very few people usually need a vacation.
This is part of a broader picture of a relaxed national health policy, says Nicholas Jaberth, a professor of policy analysis and management at Cornell University.
Jabarth is the author of numerous studies on paid sick leave that confirm White’s findings. In two other studies, he states: “We found clear evidence … that the rate of infection decreases dramatically when cities and states cross these states.”
He says the United States is at greater risk than other industrialized nations due to the outbreak of COVID-1 virus.
He says that things like universal access to healthcare and approval for paid sick leave are the only two things that can improve him.
