Nỗi đau xót của một công dân Mỹ “giấy” gốc Việt trước đại nạn Wuhan Virus đã được ông Vice Dean đại học Y Khoa UCSF (bậc nhất Hoa Kỳ) nhiệt tình chia sẻ và ông Professor đại học Y Khoa Stanford (bậc nhất thế giới) đánh giá là “Extremely well written!” (bài viết thật tuyệt kỹ!). Cũng bõ chút lòng “Bầu ơi thương lấy Bí cùng, tuy rằng khác giống nhưng chung một giàn” của một Thuyền Nhân tỵ nạn với Quốc Gia ân nhân!

Dear colleagues, friends & compatriots,
It pains me greatly to see that “The greatest nation on Earth does not have Solidarity”. Living in the democratic system that they created, all citizens must respect “ONE CITIZEN ONE VOTE” and must respect the outcome of the vote no matter which side they stand to build a great country together even “same bed but different dreams” as a Vietnamese saying. Over the past three years, the American people who claims to be most civilized and wealthiest people in the world has been engaging in so “dirty to disgusting” personal conflicts & politic fights, constantly destroying Homeland to the point of being the worst in the Great World War against Wuhan Virus:
– India: There are only 340 deaths in a population of 1 billion 400 million.
– South Korean : There are only 222 deaths in a population of 51 million
– Vietnam: No death in a population of 100 million even next to China.
– The United States of America, our beloved country, is suffering with 24,000 deaths in a population of 333 million.
There could be no more bitter grief figures!
Wuhan Virus lying dead as still dreaming in New York
Mass grave of martyrs in the Wuhan Virus defeat of USA, the most powerful nation in the world
This is the “shared great pain” of all of us, American citizens.
Should we HOLD HANDS to save our people and REBUILD our country as a great UNIFIED NATION of AMERICA!

to me, Michael
Thank you for your note. UCSF has many outstanding clinical and basic science studies underway or proposed related to our understanding of the disease and its management. Michael Matthay is leading our clinical investigations team; I have copied him, so that he can describe some of the studies and identify some funding needs.
Best wishes to you and your family.

A small group of our friends has a small fund (300,000-500,000 USD) for Covid-19 disaster.
Would you be kind to give us some suggestions how to use that tiny amount of money.
We prefer inciting some scientific research anti-Wuhan virus (Diagnostic Test, Vaccine, Medications,..) to donating charity (mask, PPE,..)

Thank you for your note, Tam. I hope you and your family are safe and remain healthy. We will get through this terrible crisis, but life as we know it in the US will be very different as we move forward. Nonetheless, the ordeal has also brought out the best in so many people. The 7pm noise made throughout New York City to acknowledge the health care workers is remarkable. There are many other examples of kindness and support!
As you may have heard, UCSF sent 20 nurses and physicians to New York to assist with the management of Covid patients. They will be there for one month and are working diligently to help manage the high volume of patients as the surge continues.
