Letter: Trump turns presidential – but too late

To the Editor:

President Donald Trump is finally acting and talking presidential. Unfortunately, his failure to recognize the danger that the virus in China posed to the U.S. has resulted in weeks of delay in being prepared and equipped for the inevitable outbreak of the virus in the U.S.

Today the U.S, is scrambling to provide more testing equpment, masks, and ventilators for our health care providers. The president failed to ensure that the country was equipped and prepared for a major virus outbreak as he spent much of January and February, attending political rallies.

That old adage, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure'' is cerainly true.
