    I heard (news) AZ is going to triage the sick and not even try to treat everyone if it can't but only those with the best chances of making it. This is called "activating crisis care standards" (hey I'm not a medical person it's just how it's being reported)

    So it's a trainwreck. No offense though, we aren't doing very well here in Southern California either. Be safe out there.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Yes, if it's what I've heard of it's kind of reverse triage, where the more comorbidities you have, the less treatment you receive, the older you are, the less treatment you receive, etc.

    We just lost a 34-year old man here in our community. He was days from closing on a house and making his wedding plans.
    The guy [a shirttail cousin to my girls] who was to be his best man said,
    “I’m supposed to be standing next him as he marries his best friend. I can’t even stand next to him to bury him. And people want to be mad about having to wear a mask.”

    Look at him! Look how vital he looks! And he was working from home!
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Treatment for covid is changing, with medical personnel now less likely to intubate patients or put them on ventilators because of the negative side effects vs oxygen. This makes a lot of sense to me, especially if oxygen is fed in only through the nose and the mouth is free. Anything covering up your face and interfering with your breathing freely is bad news, including masks.

    I guarantee even the rah rah masks people whip them off as soon as they get home, and no one says it's so comfortable it's just like another piece of clothing and I forget I have it on.

    Sounds like those "death panels" people were talking about a few years ago. But single-payer health coverage for everyone doesn't exist so this must be happening with ... private insurance? How can that be???
