The Atlantic tells us that we’re officially eff’ed:
“The pandemic nightmare scenario—the buckling of hospital and health-care systems nationwide—has arrived. Several lines of evidence are now sending us the same message: Hospitals are becoming overwhelmed, causing them to restrict whom they admit and leading more Americans to needlessly die.”
“The current rise in hospitalizations began in late September, and for weeks now hospitals have faced unprecedented demand for medical care. The number of hospitalized patients has increased nearly every day: Since November 1, the number of people hospitalized with COVID-19 has doubled; since October 1, it has tripled.”
It’s not exactly the number of beds (they can always build field hospitals in parking lots and ballparks) it’s that they are out of staff to care for the patients.
The out-of-control Trump-Virus continues to set holy merde records daily—death rates have reached the daily-9/11 threshold—and we still haven’t arrived at the post-Thanksgiving peak.
The CDC NOW recommends universal mask use when people are in any indoor space outside of their own homes. It’s probably a coinkydink that this guidance came out just days after Dr. Atlas Shrugged jettisoned from the Death Star.
