Coronavirus Flu Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Part Infinity

I saw this the other day and bookmarked it:

If you are keeping up with the virus news, you know by now that the Seattle area has been hit the hardest and 9 people have died, and the contagion has spread to the general population.

I saw this tweet thread from a Seattle resident last night, which kinda seems like it might be related:

If you follow the thread, you’ll see that her story is essentially:

  • Waited for 40 minutes on hold on the coronavirus hotline before giving up
  • Followed the CDC’s directions to see a primary care doctor
  • Called two (2!) primary care doctors, the first of whom told her A) they didn’t know where she could be tested and 2) that she should not seek out testing.
  • the other doctor told her to go to the ER or an urgent care facility.
  • Called urgent care, which told her to call a hospital.
  • Called a hospital, which didn’t have any tests but transferred her to the cursed Covid-19 hotline again!
  • Told by the Covad-19 hotline that she does not qualify for testing and that the only way she can get treated is if her symptoms get to the point where she develops pneumonia or bronchitis.

I think I got it all. It’s a cavalcade of stupidity. You could write it off to bureaucracy, but then again…

So the briefing is just a photo-op? It’s not enough for theocrat Mike Pence to be in charge; he must also gag people who know what they’re talking about from communicating with the public.

I’m old enough to recall that it was not unusual for the old Soviet Politburo to black-out all bad news, including when Chernobyl melted down. The 4th Reich isn’t just incompetent, they are trying to bend reality to say that Hair Füror is successful in this endeavor.

    Just the other day, fat nixon boasted to the press that we would have a ‘great’ vaccine in a couple of months to which Dr. Fauci had to meekly correct the vulgar fuck and reiterate that it would be over a year before such exists. Then, as usual, fat nixon ignoring that statement and other important statements from the medical professionals assembled, childishly opined if the Flu vaccines could be used for COVAD-19.

    As someone with a pre-existing condition, I hope that this doesn’t become an untreatable Pandemic. But if it does so, my hope is that enough ‘muricans will wake up from their narcissism and ignorance and demand a fucking strong federal government precisely for shit like this instead of the toxic soup of incompetence, cruelty, and narcissism that’s running things now.

      Sadly I fear it only feeds into the GOP line that “Gummint can’t solve your problems, gummint IS the problem.” that all too many of the morons fervently believe.

      (although, weirdly, they never DO quite manage to believe that if gummint is so damned incompetent why do we have them building walls or the largest military machine in the world.

      It’s almost as if they really don’t believe that, just that they’re willing to forego a competent gummint if it properly hurts minorities the “people it’s supposed to hurt“… I think sadism and a sociopathic lack of empathy is no longer merely a feature of conservatism, it’s a requirement)

    • DJT on the campaign trail: “I love debt! I’m the king of debt!”

      The debt is just written off and charged to society as the cost of doing bidness access by our worthless(andlesseveryday) Entertainment-Journanimalism complex.

    I have had pneumonia several times in the past, a severe pulmonary infection from unknown sources that was NOT pneumonia, and more cases of bronchitis I can keep track of, and I’ve been diagnosed with non-emphysemic COPD, and I also have CHF which lists “difficulty breathing” as a main effect, so you can perhaps understand my complete lack of confidence that I won’t contract this virus, or if I do, that I’ll survive it.

    And it sounds like they’re insisting that you wait to be tested until you’re so symptomatic that you’re at death’s door, and his butler is answering your knock, eager to let you in.

    And that CNN analyst who’s predicting Pence will be wearing bus-track-marked clothing soon, and that he was picked by Fat Nixon to take the fall for, er, complete command of this crisis with the full confidence of our Nation’s best and brightest is one to put on the calendar, and perhaps place a modest bet towards.

    That twitter thread has some totally insane responses, such as the claim that this is all the fault of government health care (when it was pointed out that LACK OF public health care was the problem, he just doubled down, of course) and the claim that this was the states responsibility, also all the COVID-19 reports are in liberal cities so, blah, blah, blah… It’s a sewer, I swear.
