Really? But what about that right-wing Reddit feed, "Photograph your Hospital?" Doesn't a quiet ER in Nebraska mean it's quiet everywhere? That's what I heard.

feckingmorons: If people who aren't seriously ill would stop going to the ER that would help. If you cough a few times, you're not dying of COVID19.

But the news has people so riled up every sneeze is one step away from an ICU bed and a vet.

You almost certainly don't have a case of SARS-CoV-2 that would require hospitalization, you're not in the less than 1/4 of 1 percent of the country that has it at all, much less a bad case.

Call your doctor, stop going to the ER.


Widespread testing across the country solves this problem, which you've exaggerated greatly.

eurotrader: When a hospital gets overwhelmed the number of deaths can go up very quickly. Guessing about 50% of deaths in 2020 from covid-19 will be from inability for care to be delivered.  The Nurses can only deal with Soo many patients. Normally an ICU RN has 1-2 patients a shift because of the amount of care that needs to be delivered. When that number gets beyond 6 all bets are off for survival rates.


It doesn't help that healthcare has been cut to the bone for the sake of "efficiency." When this all started I saw somewhere a discussion of how we have fewer hospital beds overall than we did in the 1970s. Back then the attitude was to have more than you need in case something happens. Then the neoliberal crap came in and everything had to be cut for "efficiency."
