Or is the Media hyping a line of bullshit?
I mean, first we had the incredible overreaction by the States healthcare system back in February, March and April....Things like the Javits Center in NY and McCormack place in Chicago...huge mobilizations that ended up caring for tens of patients. Tens.
We heard stories of health care workers being put in danger because there were incredible shortages of PPE and trained personnel (But, Heroes that they were, they soldiered on.....making Tik-Tok videos, of course)
Now, 7 months later, we are hearing the same stories...Hospitals are about to become overwhelmed, and there are, again, Dangerously low levels of PPE for those heroic health care workers....
Look: It isn't like this "surge" in cases is a surprise. At least not to anyone with more than 3 synapses that are firing.
And the "shortage" of PPE? You'd think that these folks who run the hospitals could foresee and stock for a continued need for PPE...if nothing else they should have learned from the debacle 7 or 8 months earlier and planned ahead
Oddly, there has been no shortage of Hospital type masks available in the retail market...nor gloves. But the hospitals can't find enough to stock accordingly?
So, either someone is incompetent, at many levels, or the Media is lying.
Sadly, either is possible.
