This is what happens in a global pandemic. The needs of those sick with the virus eventually overwhelms whatever resources hospitals have left.
Because national public health agencies didn’t prepare for this, it falls on the doctors and nurses taking care of these patients to allocate whatever resources they have the best they can. Of course, this only adds to the stress levels of these providers, many of whom are into their 10th month of this. Those that haven’t hit their breaking point are dangerously close.
I know no one’s reading this, and it probably wouldn’t make any difference if they were. But knowing that there are people out there who still don’t believe this is real is inconceivable.
They, of course, haven’t seen what I have.
I sincerely hope they never do.
