Indeed?  You mean every government in the world didn’t do it wrong?  I was told this was the fault of government.


>…but we don't have coordinated leadership or any sort of strategy…


The US Constitution intentionally distributes power, and it maintains power at the state and local level.  The Federal government does what it can do.  But it is limited.  They can close national borders.


>…Even at this late date 8 governors have STILL not issued stay at home orders, all 8 are Republicans…


Campaign opportunity!

Campaign opportunity!

Campaign opportunity!

To issue such an order requires POTUS to declare martial law.  There are some disadvantages to doing that.

John you should run for office.  You are retired now, and the virus is handing you the opportunity.  Never let a crisis go to waste.  Failing to make an opportunity of a tragedy is a tragedy.
