Opinion: COVID-19 showed that the U.S. healthcare system needs reform

The recent and still on-going COVID-19 pandemic left the world in chaos and anguish. In the midst of the huge disorder that this historical event brought on, one of the questions that arise is: Could we have done better in responding to this international crisis?

My answer to this question is, yes. The United States (US) as a whole could have, and more than that, should have done better, specifically in the area of healthcare. In fact, our healthcare system definitely did not contribute to the fullest and more than anything, COVID-19 has shown us that the US healthcare system needs reform and changes.
