Spike, I don't know how this work in the US, but these matters are not
handled directly by the politicians or the administration.
They defer to their experts for what to do, how to do and when to do.
They could override them, but they would take risks and responsibility
for it (it will never happen).

They want exploit the fear, not cause it to be real.
They really do not want it to become real, because it would imperil
their power.
