Just wait until people start calling 911 because their loved-one has expired and there is a two day wait to get the Coroner to the home.

People will be living with contagious dead bodies because of the overwhelmed Coroner/morgue/mortuary system.

Just wait. You haven't seen the worst yet. The Thanskgiving rush won't be hitting the ERs & morgues for another week or two, just in time to fuel the Christmas rush, which won't hit ERs & morgues until the New Year's rush just starts...

The next three months are going to be nasty, brutish, and way, way too long...

So sick of winning.

So a random doctor has a theory that two hospitals utterly denied.

Proof enough for me!

As long as the hospital gives me a bucket of pills as a parting gift I would prefer to die at home.

It's winter. Put the bodies outside and nature will store them for a couple days.

People caught violating stay at home, mask and social distancing orders should be forced into a mandatory quarantine where they have to watch Zoom streams of people dying of the 'rona all day long.

/harsh? yes
//necessary? unless you've got a better idea, yes

Just think of all the money you'll save though.
 
2020-12-03 3:55:31 PM  
Look, I don't get your point. What about this is upsetting to you?
If we didn't have someone crying (that there isn't any) wolf, then a huge bunch of people getting sick, and then pushing untested and not liable vaccines, tell me how will the rich make more money?!
Clear?

Geez, do you want the US to be like the backwards countries that actually locked down, had widespread testing and enforced mask laws, with contact tracing?

So like New York back in April-May? Its about to happen again but nationwide.

The corpses arrive from across the city. Since mid-April, the bodies of New Yorkers have been pulled from homes, hospitals and alleyways, zipped up in black body bags and brought here for processing. Some died hours earlier; others have been gone for days, or even weeks.

That's been thought of, as the medical 911 system is literally about to collapse and the 60,000 ambulances nationwide are basically hopelessly overwhelmed.

It's a shiatstorm.

That is a really disturbing thought.  It is also something we could be measuring.  Or at least a reporter could be tracking down.

That is my point. I was thinking about NY early on and then imagining it extrapolated out to nationwide.

It's gonna get ugly...and soonish.

Time to queue up "A Very Scary Solstice" and embrace the horror...

"It's The Most Horrible Time of the Year" and "Have Yourself a Scary Little Solstice" for general-purpose horror, but, for my money, I'm a huge fan of "I Saw Mommy Kissing Yog-Sothoth" - like COVID-19, it's catchy!

Still quieter than the sound & sight of a bear tearing apart a live deer in the backyard, as we were reminded...

Thank you. It's kind of helpful.

I suspect The US has the highest use of immunosuppressant drugs and it is causing problems beyond "freedoms."

You are free to wear a mask and stay inside.

Oh, oh, but all the people telling us they don't know anyone who's got C-19, And all the hospital full are BS - it's just that they didn't let those folks in the other week with mobiles so they could prove it....

Oh right, the comma.
