How FDA and CDC aided coronavirus meltdown

Columnist Jacob Sullum to explain on Tuesday how FDA and CDC aided coronavirus meltdown

From Grassroot Institute

HONOLULU, May 3, 2020 >> Hawaii’s economy is suffering enormously because of the coronavirus lockdown, and much of the blame can be traced to the federal Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

That’s the view of Jacob Sullum, a nationally syndicated columnist whose writings appear every Saturday in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Sullum, also a senior editor of Reason magazine, is the special guest of a free, live webinar on Tuesday, May 5, starting at noon, sponsored by the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii.

Sullum wrote in one of his recent columns, that the failure of the FDA and CDC to implement early and widespread testing “left politicians scrambling to avoid a hospital crisis by imposing broad business closure and stay-at-home orders.” 

“It foreclosed,” he said, “the possibility of a more proactive and targeted approach, focused on identifying carriers, tracing their contacts, and protecting the public through isolation and quarantines.”

Sullum’s weekly column, distributed by Creators Syndicate, is carried by not only the Honolulu Star-Advertiser but also the New York Post, the Chicago Sun-Times and other newspapers across the country. His work also has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle, National Review, and many other publications. He blogs about drug policy for Forbes.

At the end of his presentation, Sullum takes questions from the audience.

Moderator for Sullum’s hourlong Hawaii webinar is Keli‘i Akina, Ph.D., president of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii.
