So you didn't want her to go home, Subby?
 
2020-10-17 6:39:39 AM  
And I'm sure she'll be receiving a completely reasonable hospital bill, right?

Wow, that's a tragic outcome.

On the bright side, and it's not really a bright side as much as a lighter note: our understanding of this bug has come a long way since then. We know about the blood clots, and other quirks that we didn't understand back in March when this woman got sick. If she were to get infected today and present those symptoms, there would have been blood thinners to save her colon.

And there are more treatment options currently in Phase 3 trials that I'm pretty optimistic about.

Won't be much longer. Until then, just wear your farking masks.

Interesting tag covering for scary tag while scary tag gets tested for Covid?

My work wants us all to return to the office next week.... but my work-provided health insurance will not guarantee that covid treatments will be covered, and people are leaving the hospitals with hundreds of thousands in medical debt.

I think im just going to refuse... maybe I'll get fired, but at least i wont be saddled with crippling debt for the rest of my life.

She's 67 and presumably on Medicare, so perhaps.

And remind myself that I should cook with less garlic? No thank you.

And then there's Derek Draper, husband of UK TV presenter Kate Garraway:

The more garlic the better.

What is that like, $500 a day? Hate to get that bill.
 
2020-10-17 11:33:36 AM  
Better than the alternative.

Understatement of the year ?

Did she die?  No?  Then we're counting that as a "COVID is no big deal".

Probably in ICU, probably vented..
Add a couple zeros and you'll be in the ballpark.

/CSB, saw my first multi-million dollar inpatient claim back in 2006, and it ran for just under a month's stay.

So she probably missed half of 2020.  Doesn't seem so bad now, does it.
 
2020-10-17 3:38:02 PM  
She drained the entire U.S. Medicare Fund.

$500 a day? For being hospitalized?

I see you've been in a coma since 1995.

Probably just a non-American taking a guess at how much it costs by imaging an "expensive" number.

Look at the bright side, at least nobody has died from natural causes since March!
