The year 2020 will be remembered in history as one of the most monumental years. The COVID-19 pandemic has created havoc, affecting more than 59 million people globally, with a death toll greater than 1.4 million people worldwide . The messages from global leaders have been at odds with the scientists and the public health authorities, especially in the United States. While the global threat was dealt with at a fast pace, the virus had been downplayed by politicians and leaders in an effort to minimize the financial and economic impact of the pandemic, which in reality exacerbated these impacts.
