As a citizen of the United States, it is an honor for me to officially present this coronavirus plan. We must work together to combat the novel coronavirus.
The United States Virtual Government Coronavirus Plan (USVGCP) is formulated to facilitate the conduct of government during the coronavirus pandemic. The author of the plan recommends that this plan be adopted as soon as possible by the highest levels of government.
The outbreak and spread of the novel coronavirus present public health challenges for the federal government, state governments, and local governments. The implementation of this plan will ensure efficient governing of our nation during this national emergency.
The federal government should insist that all citizens and all residents of the United States have an email account. The possession of an email account facilitates communication between government and citizens and among citizens.
UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT-ISSUED EMAIL ACCOUNTS
The federal government should create and launch as email service provider like “Gmail” to provide all citizens and all residents with government-issued email accounts. The suggested name of the email service provider is “PeopleMail.”
US GOVERNMENT-ISSUED RESPIRATORS, MASKS, AND GLOVES
The federal government should work with American-based companies to produce respirators, hospital masks, and gloves. The federal government should provide these materials to all citizens and all residents free of charge. The federal government, working with state and local governments, should open distribution centers throughout of the country.
“MILITARIZATION” OF THE CORONAVIRIUS RESPONSE TO PREVENT LAWLESSNESS AND SOCIAL BREAKDOWN
The president should mobilize the United States Department of Defense (Pentagon), the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the United States Armed Forces. It’s time to use the power of the United States Armed Forces to prevent the spread of the virus. On the state level, it is imperative for state governors to activate the national guard. The federal troops and state troops will supplement the police department, fire department, and emergency responders’ efforts.
RESTRICTION ON DOMESTIC TRAVEL
In addition to restrictions on international travel, the federal government should implement domestic travel restrictions to prevent domestic travel to heavily affected areas such as Washington State.
VIRTUAL CENSUS 2020
Since 2020 is a “census year” i.e. the United States is officially counting its citizens; the federal government must launch a “virtual” or “online” census or postpone the 2020 Census.
The outbreak and spread of the novel coronavirus present challenges to the governance of the United States at the federal, state, and local levels. The government must engage in a “paradigm shift” by shifting our citizens and residents towards utilization of a “virtual government”. From voting to paying taxes, all citizens and all residents should be encouraged to utilize internet, online, web, and virtual services. The United States government should quickly evolve into a virtual government.
This plan is based upon my experience and education as an attorney, former United States Army veteran, and former aide to the governor of California.
