General Stanley McChrystal On Coronavirus Response
Boston Mayor Martin Walsh announced last week that he was bringing on the firm run by retired General Stanley McChrystal to oversee the city's emergency response to the coronavirus pandemic as cases rise in the city.
McChrystal is a retired four-star Army general who is best known for leading the Joint Special Operations Command in the 2000s and commanding the U.S. forces in Afghanistan. For the next two months, the team at the McChrystal Group will focus on the coordination of city agencies, integrating theirour response plans, and ensuring effective and transparent communication of those plans to city residents.
McChrystal’s advice on how to lead the nation through the coronavirus pandemic is instill confidence, tell the truth, be unified and fight it like a war.
