As of this morning, El Paso has recorded 81,511 positive tests for the Coronavirus, and 862 Covid-19 deaths.
On May 12, City Council budgeted $84.2 million for Public Health and Safety Response Programs, to include Testing, Contact Tracing and Epidemiology, Education, Prevention, and Compliance.
$84.2 million is lot of cheddar, especially when we’re doing everything on an industrial scale.
Of those five categories, all I’m seeing is the testing.
Where’s the contact tracing? How much money are we spending on the education, prevention, and compliance? I’m not seeing a lot of evidence of the money we’re spending on education, prevention, and compliance.
I’d like to see some accountability, with an emphasis on accounting.
