Letter: Not unpredictable

Anchorage Health Department director Joe Gerace described issues with COVID-19 testing as a “perfect storm.” Isn’t that a combination of severe and unpredictable events?

If Gerace were open to listening to constituents, he would have heard the predictions of a testing debacle being voiced for at least two months. The only unpredictable event, it seems, was him and municipal manager Amy Demboski not attending an Anchorage Health committee meeting that had been planned for months because, according to the ADN report, they were “too busy.”
