    I used to work security at an ER at in a medium sized city (400K pop). There were many times the ER was overloaded and people waiting in the halls, in the lobby, etc overnight. Long before COVID.
    So many factors such as one major wreck can pull the on-duty ER staff and backup the normal flow of broken arms, high-fever, heart attacks. Short staffing of doctors also caused some backlogs.

    If the media wanted to find a couple of overstuffed ERs in the Dallas area, that would be possible on any given day regardless of Covid.

    That is my personal experience - not hearsay.

    $17,000 value on average for each COVID-19 hospitalization.

    Any questions why hospitals are over reporting?

    A guy was in a motorcycle accident here and was sent to hospital where he died, they did a covid test on him and he was positive, guess what they listed the cause of death as?? I beginning to wonder about this myself!

    I've never seen such a group of paranoid people like we have here posting about Covid-19. Your all hysterical.

    I can agree with that. Where the hell is the devastation we were predicted to endure? It is the classic let’s make a mountain out of a mole hill.

    Walz predicted with the help of "Science", 22K dead in MN by April, which is why we had to be shutdown until Mid-June, and there are still business's shut down.:confused:

    So is 60,000 plus new case a day and 1,000 plus deaths a day an acceptable number?

    How about 1800 deaths per day, every day, every year? Heart disease.

    How about 1700 deaths per day every day, every year? Abortions.

    How about 1600 deaths a day, every day, every year? Cancer.

    60,000 deaths a year, every year? Is that ok? Seasonal flu.

    Don’t those lives matter?

    Your virtue signaling is showing.

    Will you guys stop with the BS that humans can stop the spread of a pandemic. It’s going to spread. Cases is nothing but a weasel word.

    First it was gonna be massive numbers of sick and dead in the millions, wrong.

    Then it was everybody’s going to get sick, wrong.

    The only thing they have is the panic porn of “cases”.

    “Can you imagine a disease so deadly you have to be tested to find out if you have it.”

    They keep screaming cases even as the numbers are going down and curves are flattening. They are going to move to deaths for a couple of weeks as they get reported from the recent spike. Then what?

    That is one of the problems with it sorting out who just has a cold verses Covid-19.

    But my question has not been answered by anyone yet. Is 60,000 plus new case and 1,000 plus deaths of Covid-19 exceptable.
    If we could open up the country and only double those numbers why not just open the country up too stop the debt drain?

    Unequivocally YES. Sad news for some of you here, people die all the time. Someone unleashed this virus on the world and it is our new reality. It is atrocious that they did that and that people will die, but the death associated with it is the new normal and no one can stop it.

    Some of us have adapted to this new reality already and just want to move on. Others still are convinced we, puny humans can change it with masks etc.

    Cases are to be expected in the new reality and sadly so are the deaths.

    I am shocked there is no rage and impetus to determine just where this came from.

    The biggest plague in recent history and we are fumbling over masks and how long bars can stay open?

    Why aren’t we punishing the creator of this disaster?
