The coronavirus pandemic is “doubly terrifying” because the U.S. has “a complete nitwit as president who understands nothing, listens to nothing, judges nothing except by the stock market and is endangering the American people,” says leading economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University. Sachs also led the WHO’s Commission on Macroeconomics and Health from 2000 to 2001 and played a key role in conceiving and establishing the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which helped distribute new medicines to fight infectious diseases.
