Thanks to our governor, Charlie Baker, and the Kraft family, Massachusetts was able to acquire thousands of masks for health workers all over the state.
Massachusetts governor launches effort to trace coronavirus cases in state
"Baker said Massachusetts is the first state in the country to create such a tracking program, which will be staffed by roughly 1,000 people who will contact patients to check on their recent activities and confirm they have not spread the highly infectious illness. “The call center will get contact information for as many people as possible, that they have come in contact with, and potentially exposed,” Baker said. “People will be contacted and informed, so that they can stay healthy, isolate when appropriate, and prevent further spread.”
Partners-In-Health, the Boston-based nonprofit that is teaming up with the state government, has done public health interventions during previous crises such as Ebola and will oversee hiring, training and supervision of the virtual call center. Joia Mukherjee, the group’s chief medical officer, said the effort will help people “to isolate themselves” if they appear at risk and will reach out to people who may have contracted the virus but appear asymptomatic."
In a long ago time, in a country that once had a conservative political party -- before the present GOP lost its mind and decided that a serial adulterer, liar, cheat, fraud, and malignant narcissist would be a great representative of Conservatism, the Republican Party would have been begging Charlie Baker to run as their presidential nominee.
Baker is the most popular governor in America. He has an 84% approval rating in one of America's bluest states, and he has NEVER supported Trump. Why? Because Baker is an honest, decent, and competent public servant.
But because the current GOP has been taken over by cultists, it will continue to favor a rotten-to-the-core damaged, incompetent man-child instead of a Republican who puts his people before himself.
Bravo, Governor Baker. Proud to have you as my governor!
