The Passing Away Of Two Humble People

#noicubeds Today I want to talk about the passing of two humble and special people. I have been proud to be associated with Explore Mars, Inc. for almost 11 years. Debbie Cohen was part of this organization for all this time. She was very competent. She got things right. She was always warm, friendly, and helpful. She touched so many lives in a good way. Debbie, you left us much too soon. You will be remembered fondly and missed.
Ray de Monia is someone whom none of us have met. Ray spent his entire life in the small town of Cullman, Alabama (between Birmingham and Huntsville.) By all accounts, he was a decent and well-liked person. Ray had what medical professionals call "a serious cardiac event." I would translate that as a serious heart attack. To save his life, he needed a bed in the Intensive Care Unit. His local hospital's ICU was full of Covid-19 patients. To the credit of the hospital staff there, they mounted a brave effort to find an ICU bed for him. They called 43 hospitals. They heard the same story time and again. Each hospital was overwhelmed with Covid-19 patients. They got him admitted to a hospital in Meridian, Mississippi. Ray died there. The consensus is that if he got to the ICU faster, he had a good chance of survival.
My statistical system shows that as of this morning we have 680,274 coronavirus deaths in the US. Not counted in this death toll are all the people like Ray.
When this pandemic began, I read The Great Influenza by Doctor John Barry of my university-Tulane. I'm not a genius with numbers like Dr. Pedro Peres, Dr. Seth Shostak, or Dr. James Kremer, but I am competent. I developed a model with over one million deaths in the US from Covid-19. My worst nightmare appears to be heading toward reality.
Everyone, stay healthy and drive carefully. The last thing you want now is a situation where you need an ICU bed!

If true, sorry for the loss. There's not a chance in hell though 43 hospitals didn't have an ICU bed. I've been and my wife had a co-worker that lived in Cullman, AL. I've been to Birmingham and Huntsville 20-30 times and Cullman a couple times. It's where we'd sometimes overnight on the way down to the Panhandle from IL. My dad's uncle lived outside Birmingham. I know the area. Hell the state.

There are for sure ICU beds there and not overwhelmed. 43 hospitals would probably put you in TN, GA, FL, MS if the story is legit. Also, serious cardiac event sounds like maybe he didn't take care of himself or he was just old and the organ/heart stopped working. I'd be hesitant to blame this on covid being the cause because there weren't enough ICU beds.

The ICU, especially with Covid is totally misinterpreted if you haven't been in one to visit someone or been there yourself. The media is making ICU beds out to be some ER type drama TV show. Not remotely how it works. My SIL was in one for weeks. It's a room, you just are on a stretcher with IV and drugs. Maybe oxygen.

Hollywood and now media have totally fucked the hospital industry. Administrators love it because it looks like they need more money. Every doctor or nurse I've conversed with says this isn't a big deal. There are beds. You have to realize the media lies. When you get independent content creators that have 1M+ people subscribed and ASKING for notification as a subscriber, big media freaks out. They'll hype and make shit up to get clicks. The ICU bed thing is crap.

What percentage of ICU beds were covid? What percentage of covid ICU were vaxed/unvaxed?

Propaganda.

Yep, how come we never see/saw stories of people unable to get care because of unstaffed beds?

I'm sorry for your loss.

However, when a hospital says they have no ICU beds, they really mean they don't have enough staff. End of story.

The ICU isn't a magic room wherein critical patients recover. A hospital can take care of you wherever. The staffing is the real issue. When we used stadiums and gymnasiums for temporary hospitals, there wasn't a shaman that casts a spell to turn them into an Intensive Care Stadiums. Hospital administration uses PR language to absolve themselves of responsibility for understaffing and overworking their employees.

It is simply a matter of staffing. Can you guess why staffing is an issue?

The Atlantic is reporting that hospitals are now admitting COVID patients with very mild symptoms which is responsible for hogging up beds. Stupid Federal policies are incentivizing hospitals to admit mild COVID patients at the expense of more serious diseases and injuries.
