Was this pandemic created to usher in Universal Healthcare?
By the end of this it would be easy. They could say, see, look how overwhelmed and under prepared these medical facilities were. If they were government run they would have been stocked up.
Insurance companies will be caught doing their usual BS and as a result people will call for them to be abolished. Thus entering into a perfect situation for the government to take over all healthcare services.
I'm just thinking out loud here.
