If only you could cover part of your body that is normally exposed, that would keep you warm.

Looks like a repurposed warehouse. I'd be more worried about the ventilation than the cold.

I hope the USA counts deploying troops for Covid as a tour of duty. For whatever deployment, insurance, and retiurement benefits that are relevant, spending weeks of months in field hospitals during a pandemic has got to be rough enough to count.

They turned the ground floor of the parking garage of a nearby hospital into a COVID ward back in the spring, to the tune of several million dollars. Seemed like overkill at the time, took on its first patients 2 weeks ago.

Just nuke the right wing media machine from orbit, string up all the scumbags on there who spread lies and disinfo on purpose.

Then do the same to republicans in congress and the 50 states legislatures and you'll be well on your way.

At least 70% of anti-maskers wouldnt exist if it wasnt for Trump and the right wing media machine.

You could look up hospitalization rates and how they've spiked during the pandemic, but I'm sure you find it easier to just choose to believe whatever you want.

I dunno; packing it full of feverish patients will give you ~50kW of free heat as a baseline. Throw in some electronics and onsite food prep, and you will probably do better than a medium office building for oil/gas use.

I realize you are Just Asking QuestionsTM, but if you asked the right people, say, who work in Emergency Rooms in NYC and Philly, they will, after sighing and resisting the urge to punch you square on the nose, assure you that this is very real. Just the other day my cousin's wife (ER nurse in Philly) said on a Tday Zoom that it's starting to feel like it felt in springtime when they had people dying in the hall.

If you want theater, you should check out the "Hearings" Rudy G is having, which at face value, are too ridiculous to describe.

My wife is a nurse. I have to hear all about it because she constantly complains about work. One thing is beyond debate ... there is definitely an epidemic of morbidly obese people in the United States. This condition alone should be considered a pandemic.

I seriously don't understand everyone's logic.
We are completely opposed to universal health Care.
We're also opposed to even the idea of letting citizens buy Medicare.
the emergency room can't let you die but once they stabilize you they can send you home to die.
we're perfectly content to let people not have healthcare even if that shortens their life and/or causes amputations.
Given the above facts undeniable actual effects this doesn't match our behavior of bothering with field hospitals.
Are you going to still charge me an arm and a leg for visiting a field hospital?

This is not a new problem that has spiked in the last few months.

Unless the argument you're making is 'Covid isn't dangerous, it only kills people I don't like' which says more about you than the ongoing pandemic.

Obviously.

I bet they put in a tax for it. Like ''cost of building the field hospital in the first place'' +$1000 or some other BS like that.

And its all good that they're building field hospitals... but do they have competent people to staff them? Is it like ventilators? Like we have enough but... not enough people to operate them?

A field hospital with no crew is worthless.... its not a field hospital, its an hospice.

I would argue that we are addressing the epidemic of morbid obesity. We are throwing everything we have at them to try to protect them.

"If you look at the United States of America with our epidemic of obesity as it were, with the number of people with hypertension, with the number of people with diabetes, if everyone got infected, the death toll would be enormous and totally unacceptable," Dr. Fauci said.

Never a better way to make a tax increase permanent than say you are using it to pay for some public project.

To be fair, that's largely what covid care is, in general, once people are so sick they're admitted anywhere.

If you look at the racial demography for covid victims you get a pretty decent idea of the obesity demography for North America. There is a correlation.

And the "obesity epidemic" has been considered a pandemic for a long time.

I would argue that if you were actually trying to argue in good faith that you were literally a moron. But I know you aren't arguing in good faith so it's all good. Bland, weak, and transparently obvious. Honestly it's just a self-reflection of an insipid and pathetic nihilist who doesn't believe in anything except his immediate surroundings.It's like all the stinking desperation of trying to act like a good lil' MAGAt with none of Trump's aplomb: very sad and low energy.You must be one of the new guys!

Apparently, we're not, because we still do not have a nationwide mask mandate.

We do not have a nationwide lockdown, we do not have a nationwide contact tracing program, we do not have a graduated system of reasonable restrictions on a national level, but we do have massive amounts of disinformation flowing freely from Republican channels claiming that Covid-19 is a hoax, or is just the flu, or is just a cold.

We had millions of people visiting each other for Thanksgiving.  We have dipshiats calling their restaurants 'autonomous zones' and we have farking morons claiming that no one is dying, no one is really sick, this is all just a hoax . . . or that it only kills fat people or people we don't like so it's not bad.

Hypothetical: if a plague came about, that only killed obese people, would you see this as a good thing or a bad thing?  Because I think it would be, and the current pandemic is, a farking horrifying mass death of my fellow Americans that could be avoided, if only we did the bare minimum required.  Not even 'throwing everything we have at them'
 
2020-11-30 11:13:46 PM  
You don't get it. Everyone wears masks around here with zero drama. Thanksgiving was via Zoom, and I cooked the first turkey in my life. Christmas is cancelled, and probably New Years. We take this stuff seriously, and we are getting level-decked with this thing. I'm grounding my aged parents, I will be doing their shopping, as my little nuclear family all caught it in April and have mostly recovered. Antibodies, I hope. But my Dad had both his knees replaced before the Surge, and has to have physical therapists come three times a week. They all wear masks, and direct the exercises from across the room. We stand in line at target to get in.

That's how we do in Rhode Island.

It's going to be a bloodbath in Texas and Florida. The Little Red States with isolated communities sooo far away from any hospital and incompetent leadership have no idea what's coming for them. This thing is going to kill more Americans than WWII.
