Dr. Rex Archer, Director of Health for the Kansas City Health Department, said with cases soaring, contact tracers are having trouble keeping up. However, once the numbers start to decline, it's the best method to end the pandemic. "The contact tracing is exactly what puts out the fires," Archer said. Both Archer and Jackson County Administrator Troy Schulte are calling on Congress to step in.
"There are funds that could be coming down to relieve us after the last day or two in December," Archer said. The money Archer is referring to is another relief package that's been approved by the House but is sitting in the Senate awaiting approval.
At this point it's important to mention that people way smarter than TKC worry that printing so much free money might spark inflation and turn the pandemic depression into something even more dire.
Let's not forget that cash is really nothing more than a promise.
