    This is, sadly enough, not a news story. Instead, it’s a tale of speculative fiction. However, it’s not “high fantasy.” There are no elves or dragons to be found, and the setting isn’t in some mythical land. Neither is it science fiction, because it doesn’t call for any technology or discovery not all in evidence. It’s more a story out of alternative history—alternative present, really—with a focus on what could have been.  This is a grand “what if” of a United States that isn’t trailing the globe in its response to the COVID-19 crisis. A United States that hasn’t racked up a disproportionate, and still growing, portion of the world’s deaths. A United States that hasn’t treated a pandemic as an “opportunity” to punish...

As testing has increased nationwide, a number of states have seen their total number of COVID-19 cases rise. However, the weekly death toll continues to decline, suggesting that either the disease is weakening, as some experts have suggested, or that the "spike" in cases does not indicate that the virus is actually spreading faster. Either way, Murphy is not alone: even Republican governors like Greg Abbott of Texas and Ron DeSantis of Florida have rolled back some of the business reopenings in their states because of concerns...
