Who left the bag of idiots open?
Hospitals are overwhelmed with Covid right now. Fact.
Found out one of my coworkers mentioned earlier in the thread has been hospitalized. His kidneys appear to be failing. No room at the local hospital. Had to transport him 180 miles away.
Good thing this is just a made up crisis. I'm sure his wife enjoys being stuck in a hotel room not being able to see him.
my mother had covid 3-4 months ago. Very mild symptoms.
A couple weeks ago, she scheduled an unrelated elective surgery. Had to get C-19 tested ahead of that per hospital policy. Tested positive. Not for antibodies, for the actual infection.
Gets re-tested 72 hours later, negative. Gets the surgery done, starts going through her chart and sees "SARsCo19 infection therapeutic protocol..."blah blah.
She gets into it with billing- (she used to be a medical transcriptionist) and lo and behold the hospital listed her as a C-19 patient.
This is not an isolated incident.
The hospitals are literally full beyond capacity with very sick patients here. I'm certain that most of them are not faking it. Some of them likely tested negative at some point. No test is perfect.
True, but hospitals are receiving some additional $ with C19 diagnosis. Whether this was fraud, miscoded, assumed or partially erroneous (maybe a lab test was triggered by antibodies) is the question.
Yeah, one of my kids works at a big hospital icu in town...he's prettyy good about keeping us aprised of 'the hoax'...especially since he has ended up doing 'post-mortem care' on some of the hoax victims. I think he said they had only a few beds open on Thanksgiving day.
Now blood tests are confirming covid hir the US late fall 2019. This was on top of us before we knew it.
I am not going to be happy when this all blows over and I have to travel again, especially during the summer.
Heck I doubt it’s over by summer

It is so weird I have not been to the airport since March on my lap top if I hit d on the search bar Delta does not pop up same thing with H no hilton. Damn the wife and I want to get to Florida to fish too.
Rando rhetorical questions
How many homeless do we have in the US? Many with mental health issues... What's the plan for vaccination?
Oh yeah, remember all those 'undocumented guests'? What's the plan for vaccination?
How many rural hospitals, clinics can support -100°F temps for vaccines?
If you needed to anticipate where you will have more C-19 anti vaxers, would it more resemble historical anti vaxers (heavy west coast) or would it look more like the partisan voting map?
Do I get vaccinated just for the documentation so I can go back to doing my job? Can't complain though when I say going back to doing my job, I have had zero personal income hit because of covid, 2020 has not been a shitty year.
My mom works in a nursing home and said they just got the vaccine in last night. Once get the go ahead they do a round and then after like 2 weeks think she said they do another round.

So the bat soup was cooked up earlier than we originally thought...
I'm coming down with something. Went and got tested today, will be quarantining myself until the results come back. It just feels like a chest cold to me but better safe than sorry.
Curious, I didn't think either the Pfizer nor Moderna vaccines had yet received approval, even for emergency/exception use or on the fast track...
Also kind of weird because I thought the extreme low storage temp wasn't something that most facilities can accommodate.
On another note we have an out break at work. Two stations worth of people across the board came down with it. Several hospitalizations.
Unless they are in the UK
One of my uncles is currently on a ventilator and has been since Thanksgiving. No change in either direction.
He's in his mid-70s with no prior health conditions. Obviously his age may have factored into this a little bit, but still...
Fwiw-I recall an interview with the PFE CEO or Biontech CEO, it needed to be longer term stored at low temps, but for 5 days before administration had different temp parameters...don't recall them off hand.
Dry ice works short term...till it sublimates.
