I agree that more should be done for other problems on the earth. Maybe because many of them only effect "other countries" and not as much the US such as malaria. It might be that we are seeing from others that our responses to this disease can have some impact. Some countries are reacting more than others. For example look at 3 similar countries in Europe: Norway, Finland, and Sweden. Norway and Finland made a big deal about it and did lots about it. Sweden decided to have a hands off approach and allowed for more "business as usual". Number of deaths from the virus per million people--Sweden-431, Finland-57 and Norway-40. The point being that the choices people and governments are making seem to be having some impact. Is it too much? Not enough? That is complicated.
