OK TM, I got a good night sleep an will respond to your false claims.
The outcry for more ventilator was very loud and overstated. Sure NY might have needed more at one time but the initial estimates were exagerated and never needed.A friend of mine who is a respiratory therapist and thus works directly on covid-19 patients in the hospitals he serves told me that at the peak of the problem in his area they did indeed lack enough ventilators and ICU space for the patients who needed them.
As said, the death predictions factored in the states to shut down. They were wrong and it never hit us like Fauci claimed it would.Fortunately the state shut things down around the same time and the situation has stabilized in his area, though he is still having to work 12 hours a day seven days a week, same as all the other respiratory therapists, to ensure they have enough coverage to treat everyone.
We shut our country down due to incorrect models. Plain, simple and tragic. If some communities felt shortages of beds, doctors or ventilators, why scare the whole country by claiming we will all be in that shape?So the resources of that community are still stretched thin. If your community is not heavily impacted by it, that's great. I hope for your sake and that of your community it stays that way.
That is a redundant statement. Of course the whole country will not be affected the same. But the initial scare continued to be told to the whole country equally.It varies from place to place in this country.
The whole country was once clamoring for more ventilators in anticipation of needing them. When next to none needed them like we were told. Within weeks we knew the triage centers, hospitals floors, doctors, nurses, floating hospital boats were not needed because the crisis never rose to the level we were told it would. And, to say "thank goodness" does not cut it...they were wrong.I live in an area more impacted than some, so there are concerns about availability of ventilators and ICU space.
Yes many have, which has caused hospitals to suffer major financial losses and for people to put off routine, elective and non-emergency medical care.But the hospitals and clinics have not closed up the other services needed by those who don't have covid-19.
Yes, mine have too. It's because they are suffering financial losses because patients have been turned away, doctors furloughed, floors closed and patients afraid of going near a hospital for fear of contracting Covid.Indeed, the very large medical practice where I get my care sent out an e-mail just a few days ago urging patients not to put off getting needed care, stating that they have the resources to provide treatment for other conditions and outlining the steps they've taken to protect patients needed those other services to reduce the risk they'll get covid-19.
Further, if you are not aware of what I am saying it is because you are either watching mainstream media or you are not seeking outside information other than Fauci.
