Look for the helpers.

At the same time, the FDNY has seen an increase of about 2,500 calls per day, spiking at 6,527 calls on Sunday. City dispatch centers haven't seen such levels since the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.

damn.

Okay superheros slash Uber/Lyft drivers, your city needs you. Will you let this moment define you, or will you dictate the terms?

Sure, go help. But please give them adequate protection before sending them to the front lines.

I want to wake up in a city that always breathes! It's up to you, New York, New York!

Are these Democratic or Republican paramedics?  This is important to determine whether or not the Fed will help.

/it's NYC, so the Fed probly don't care either way

I hear there is a tower that can be converted to hospital space.

Yah, the problem with a pandemic, is that what you think is your 'medical capacity' will get drastically reduced by the pandemic. If you have 1/2 your doctors and nurses down for the count, your capacity probably drops to 1/8th of what you have.
Bob the plumber might be running your ventilator when you show up.

You know, it takes some serious effort to find names of the medical professionals who fought and died fighting the Spanish Flu in 1918.

/ It's almost like we swept the whole thing under the rug and told ourselves that it could never happen again.

Yet we know who played "Wonder Woman" and "Deadpool", which is what really matters.

Locally our firefighters are being told that due to community transmission they should assume they have already been exposed to the virus.  Our FFs are told to take their temperature every twelve hours.  If they have a fever, they are to either call in sick or, if at work, immediately report it to their commanding officer. They are then to call our medical provider that will assess if theyneed to be tested.  Members with a fever are to remain off duty until their symptoms subside (ex. cough, chills, difficulty breathing) AND they have been fever free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 72 hours.

Why is New York always the epicenter of shiat gone wrong?  Seriously, I think all Americans have a special place in their heart for NY, but I think it would be prudent if we just walled up the city and sent Kurt Russell in there to battle the 'rona.

Don't Lag Me Bro: Bob the plumber might be running your ventilator when you show up.


And that's a problem why? Ventilators are tubes with air flowing through them. Pipes are tubes with water flowing through them. They are basically the same principle. Hell, both even contain oxygen, so fundamentally, there really isn't much of a difference in operation.

Pure oxygen after a few days becomes toxic.  Making adjustments and correct assessments is a little more complex than plumbing.  Just because you can paint a house does not mean you can paint a portrait.

Good point. My other sister, does transplants and also microwaved an egg, ignoring me, screaming that it was a bad idea . Then it exploded.

I have a family member who is an EMT that is headed there right now. I'm not thrilled about it, but the city is pretty much on fire now. Take care NYC farkers.

Jebus, I haven't thought about that movie in two decades. I hope it's streaming somewhere.
