Arizona hospitals bracing for crisis

Tuscon and Phoenix hospital ICU units at close to full capacity. You have to hand it to the perpetrators of this hoax. They are well connected to be able to pull of this kind of fake news. Either that or there is a surge and there are a lot of old people in those cities.

Way to go, rioters gathering en masse. I thought every had to practice social distancing and not gather in groups larger than a few people or they were killing Grandma.

Rioters killed Grandma, man

Hospitals in various areas have always been temporarily overwhelmed by flu patients at times.

It was never news before.

Now it's news in order to deliberately inculcate fear, which is useful for controlling a population.

I think the key here is "Novel".
If it's a new disease then it's a total freakout until we gain confidence in the correct way to handle it.

I agree with this sentiment to an extent. "Novel" or new is relative. We have data on it and it's clearly not the monster is was made out to be. We'll have a slight uptick in overall deaths, maybe, but I'm not certain this will even be labeled a pandemic in the historic sense 100 years from now. They'll likely be laughing at us and our response.

Arizona has more than its share of old folks, and they’ve been open for a while now. They’ve probably got a moderate outbreak going there. Half the state is an open nursing home, so it’s going to be hard on that population.

lol it's just the BLM spike. Flu seasons regularly stress out hospitals, so technically not fake news but no news.

Seems more like local data to me.

Since covid patients are often on ventilators for extended periods, and since there are a lot of seniors in those cities, I would say if you live there and are old, the fear is probably more real than it is media manipulation. Common sense is still a thing, no ?

Could be all those Phoenix protesters not following social distancing rules.

Oh wait, that only applies to small business and small business protesters. Leftism retards the spread of COVID-19

Right. Who knew you could be exposed to covid-19 and be in an ICU one day later ? Or perhaps young protesters catch it, it develops and they pass it on to older folks in the community, who end up in an ICU in negative five to negative 10 days.

Think Gov Ducey will force nursing homes to take known CV-19 patients? Or is that something only a Dem Governor would do?

Doesn't matter in the end. One of the dumbest things they ever said was that they didn't know about immunity. Pretty much every virus gives you immunity once you had it, some you can catch one or two more times, and then there are retroviruses such as HIV which are exceptions that have nothing to do with CV. We are slowly but surely building herd immunity as the European countries who are a few weeks ahead of us have been doing. At the end of the day life leads to death unless you're a trans humanist maybe. This is useless news, maybe not fake but close to it. And if they are so worried about it then they should thank those BLM marxist protesters, although I don't mind them building herd immunity as long as they don't riot.

Following in the footsteps of a Washington Post report we cited earlier, Bloomberg has just published a report highlighting the disturbing rise in new cases in some states.
Bloomberg and the washington post...lololol

I thought we were supposed to be able to read if we want. Where's the button for that ? Oh yeah, I have to look at the html ?

How do I do that for a single comment ?

LOL

I liked the old Patnet style better, with only limitation of no direct insults
I am not a fucking snowflake who will get offended that jazz or someone else disagrees with me, or that AF posts 100 threads with orangemanbad which is tiresome but I can simply ignore 2/3 of those
