This doctor says people are now waiting up to 5 hours just to get inside the emergency rooms in New York

And the worst is still ahead

Our local hospital now has check in an triage in a tent In the parking lot only if you meet certain standard you go inside. My brother also has found out he will neither be allowed at their 2nd daughter's birth or allowed to stay with them at the hospital like a father does after is born. My sister in law whose having a C-section no less will be alone to care for her newborn pretty much.

@foggymorning31 that's a big difference from their older daughter birth not only was my brother there. Her mom was too and I spent quite bit of time with them at the hospital rest of us Including thebig sister won't meet the baby til they come home
eventually the nurses and doctors will start getting sick.
more patents and less medical staff.

if this keeps up, the sick will receive no help at all, ever.
@plungesponge even if the services are running perfectly, there might as well not be any cause there is no possible way for it to keep up with demand.

@UnlikelyTomato it's already happening though a nurse told me people at my job more at risk cause we're not as clean and don't wear PPE
@foggymorning31 not using it but i have a p100 respirator on hand.

I guess it's only front-line medics and those in hospital being treated by them who know what the worst of this can be like. Thankfully majority get through without needing hospitalisation but the numbers are so large I fear overload in every country this outbreak spreads to :(

The Trump Pandemic continues apace. As long as it's a state whose every resident has bowed down and shown proper deference to the Great Trumpkin, they will be mocked and made jokes of for dying.
