"The US administration’s war on expertise is imperilling the country’s
people and jeopardising the global fight against Covid-19, according to
former Australian chief scientist Penny Sackett.
Professor Sackett, a Nebraska-born astronomer, said the “shocking”
politicisation of science under Donald Trump was increasingly affecting
the rest of the world.
“If the US becomes the epicentre for this epidemic and does nothing
about it, that will have ramifications everywhere,” she said. “I say
this as a dual citizen. How the US responds to this − both its response
to science generally and its immediate health and policy response −
affects the rest of the world.”"
