If it makes you feel any better Remdesivir probably doesn't work.

The Wartime President found a battle he thought he could win and get that Purple Heart that he so covets.

trump's campaign required all attendees at his rally in tulsa to sign them so i'm sure it's just a formality

Denial is metastatic within the psyche. When its your go to move regarding uncomfortable truth, the actions of people are truly inexplicable except for understanding this basic dynamic. I deny, I lie it away, I eventually at the end game of this strategy ... display outright contempt for truth, by flagrantly doing the very opposite of what truth, if admitted, would demand.. To wit, passing a law making it illegal to mandate mask wearing. It's a subconscious process. Denial raised to the point of not only avoiding, but aggressing against truth.

How hard would it be to ship people to other states that have hospital capacity? Obviously if every state spikes we are screwed but seems like if only a few states are spiking at a time the nation should be able to figure something out.

Not too hard but it would be a little stupid. Give Cuomo a call, I'm sure he'd be open arms to fill NY hospitals with Covid.

That's why field hospitals and begging WH ventilators are a thing

Smaller scale but the UK were doing that at the height of the first wave, moving patients between facilities as capacity dictated.

You still get treated, but you get hounded for medical bills for the rest of your life.

Does it tag your credit rating? Is medical a valid reason for bankruptcy? I can't keep track of all the little gotchas the lobbyists are able to build in.

Re: The Coronavirus Prep/Sweat thread. What are you doing to save yourself?

What really pisses me off is I have insurance (which I pay 300$ monthly) and they have a copay and then decide 2 months later your copay isnt enough to cover that blood test you got so you owe 200$ more. I understand their argument but its bullshit. To me the premium covers any tests the doctor decides needs to be done
