Why? Because Mike Bloomberg Has the Foresight for Medical Research and He Is the Only Presidential Candidate in History to Give a Fortune for Medical Science  

"Unsolicited Advice" Column

H ere is the latest news in the United States about the Coronavirus COVID-19) medical crisis:

Health officials in Washington state said on Saturday a coronavirus patient has died.The death is the first from coronavirus illness COVID-19 in the United States. As of early Saturday (February 29th), the U.S. has 66 cases of coronavirus, which includes nine people who have recovered and four “presumptive” cases, which are those that tested positive in local tests with confirmation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention pending. To read more, please click this link: https://www.aol.com/article/news/2020/02/29/first-coronavirus-death-in-the-us-occurs-in-washington-state/23937204/
Let us all hope and pray that the COVID-19 will not mutate into a more-dangerous pathogen. The Spanish Flu was said to have been caused by a weaker virus but medicine was not as advanced as the 21st-century medical science. But our problem now is that modern transportation systems enable so-many millions of people to travel weekly across the globe. And thus the potential to spread the Coronavirus is greater. Here is the historical account of the Spanish Flu pandemic that was estimated to have caused 50-million (yes, spelled with an M): https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/1918-pandemic-h1n1.html


And Mr. Bloomberg is the only presidential candidate in recent memory -- to my limited knowledge -- to possess a track record of devoting funds for medical research. The Bloomberg Family Philanthropies's aid to scientists in doing their tasks of developing precision medicine and cures for present-day known illnesses and potential threat to mankind is unprecedented in presidential history. 


It says: QUOTE. NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Bloomberg Philanthropies, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM), and The New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute today announced an initiative to fundamentally advance and expand the science of precision medicine, in which diagnostic disease markers are defined with pinpoint accuracy to help researchers understand disease pathways and customize therapeutic approaches. The collaboration will combine the renowned clinical and medical expertise of Johns Hopkins with the unique stem cell technologies and research capabilities of the NYSCF Research Institute to accelerate Hopkins' pioneering Precision Medicine Initiatives . . . UNQUOTE.

If he is elected the Democratic nominee for President and he wins, a Chief Executive Bloomberg has the experience and the ability to discuss with, and motivate, medical researchers and scientists to find cures for medical maladies. His potential opponent cannot match his talent for data-driven ability to decide what steps to take and where to get the immediate funds to rush the development of vaccines and other cures to combat a medical threat that can become a global pandemic.

Who would voters -- if they use their common sense -- trust in leading a fight to address immediate medical needs? As the adage goes, "It is elementary, Mr. Watson." # # #
