Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The US is showing how difficult it is to run a centralized and harmonized public health policy in a federal system, and the EU is not even that centralized.

Especially if you have a mad administration and a disbanded pandemic national security team...

Don't you understand pandemic administration costs money?

Why are we trying to increase the burden on taxpayers with these wasteful and bureaucratic government handout programs?

Germany has a federal system too. And responsible for health are the states. That´s why we had different restrictions in different states in the beginning. By now they have managed to harmonize the rules.

On the other hand the de-centralized competencies perhaps helped the survival of more testing laboratories? And a few more people closer to the ground? They are partly state and partly district/county (?) responsibility.
