Covid set to break America's best-prepared hospital?

https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/11/americas-best-prepared-hospital-nearly-overwhelmed/617156/?fbclid=IwAR35GNAtr1nfdk4bWgvvyBdfRbiXrMFXuagHhKVdM0hcM4XNCDFvYMuV6IU

Cawcutt knows what’s coming. Throughout the pandemic, hospitalizations have lagged behind cases by about 12 days. Over the past 12 days, the total number of confirmed cases in Nebraska has risen from 82,400 to 109,280. That rise represents a wave of patients that will slam into already beleaguered hospitals between now and Thanksgiving. “I don’t see how we avoid becoming overwhelmed,” says Dan Johnson, a critical-care doctor. People need to know that “the assumption we will always have a hospital bed for them is a false one.”

What makes this “nightmare” worse, he adds, “is that it was preventable.” The coronavirus is not unstoppable, as some have suggested and as New Zealand, Iceland, Australia, and Hong Kong have resoundingly disproved—twice. Instead, the Trump administration never mounted a serious effort to stop it. Whether through gross incompetence or deliberate strategy, the president and his advisers left the virus to run amok, allowed Americans to get sick, and punted the consequences to the health-care system. And they did so repeatedly, even after the ordeal of the spring, after the playbook for controlling the virus became clear, and despite months of warnings about a fall surge.

Suspect source of anecdotal evidence, talked to a guy living in Wisconsin and he said some younger individuals want to get it so they can donate plasma at 400$ a pop.

This is definitely for the best. Kind of like when you send your kids out to play when big decisions are made around the dining room table.

A buddy got married in OK last weekend, 100ish people, inside. I did not go (wasn't even invited  :frown: ) but it looks like a couple of people I know who went came down with the rona afterwards.

I was talking with my friend who was going before he left and we had this convo

"Probably not a good idea to go with the rona virus and all"

"Yeah but I'm a groomsman so I have to go"

He got sick right after coming back, got tested once and it came back negative but he's getting tested again because he still feels like crap and some of our other friends tested positive.

I'm going to a burial this week.  Skipping stuff but figured the outdoor burial will be safe enough with masks.

Not alot in here that hasn't been discussed, "people will get confused!!", "it's not a PCR test!", "they suck!".  The Slovakia article was kinda interesting.

The federal government, he and others argue, should be throwing money at companies to produce the tests, or possibly even building factories to produce them itself. With $20 billion, Mina argues, the government could build four factories that produce enough antigen tests to stop most outbreaks in the country. That may sound like a lot of money, but it’s just 1 percent of the COVID-19 stimulus package, the CARES Act. And after the pandemic ends, the factories could be repurposed for flu tests and other efforts. “But they haven’t done it, and I don’t know why,” Mina said.

The "people won't understand" argument was why masks weren't encouraged early on and was not great! People will be able to understand!
