 Last October, the Global Health Security Index was released, exploring that very issue. It was the first comprehensive assessment of global health security capabilities in 195 countries. The index analyzed preparation levels by focusing on whether countries have the proper tools in place to deal with large scale outbreaks of disease, with scores measured on a scale of 0 to 100 where 100 is the highest level of preparedness.

The United States has the strongest measures in place and it came first with a score of 83.5, ahead of the United Kingdom with 77.9 and the Netherlands with 75.6. China was further down the ranking with a score of 48.2, placing it 51st.

What that article doesn't say is whether the data was taken before or after Trumpy's cuts to CDC and Pandemic Response teams.

Big surprise..totally unexpected. Wealthy countries are simply streaks ahead in the Global Health  Security thing.

A community service announcement brought to you by a lot of rich Americans.

Al Gore must be really really pissed off.


Developing the GHS Index

To create the GHS Index, NTI, JHU, and the EIU project team—with generous grants from the Open Philanthropy Project, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Robertson Foundation—worked with an international advisory panel of 21 experts from 13 countries to create a detailed and comprehensive framework of 140 questions, organized across 6 categories, 34 indicators, and 85 subindicators to assess a country’s capability to prevent and mitigate epidemics and pandemics.

I fail to see the point of this thread.
The point is pretty simple.
There are multiple threads talking about how unprepared the US is and how poor the response has been. 
This study shows those threads and most of the comments were based on False and misleading information.

Thank good ness for one bit of good news

Sure it does. Because there never were any cuts.  
 

AP Fact checked that when those talking points came out. 
??

I saw the budget, dumbass. Isn't that what you elected him to do, slash Big Gubbermint and "wasteful spending" especially all that big-brain science-y stuff that makes you right-wing pinheads uncomfortable?

So...you post something published prior to this outbreak, outdated and reactive. That figures.

You are a fucking tool.  Trump's cuts were fund shifts to block grants to the states. Your fucking bullshit lefty fuck meme regurgitation belongs on joke anarchy.

Trump proposed CDC cuts, but they didn't happen.  Congress basically ignored his ass and increased funding.

Didn't you consider that perhaps your yay team moment, might be a bit premature? Three weeks from now, you could be in a warehouse, getting care from one nurse per125 patients, while laying on a cot.
