A meme and two stories - Wuhan Flu

20211104-informed.jpgAnd these two stories - Kaiser Health News (a part of Kaiser/Permanante's non-profit wing):

ERs Are Swamped With Seriously Ill Patients, Although Many Don’t Have Covid
Inside the emergency department at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan, staff members are struggling to care for patients showing up much sicker than they’ve ever seen.

Tiffani Dusang, the ER’s nursing director, practically vibrates with pent-up anxiety, looking at patients lying on a long line of stretchers pushed up against the beige walls of the hospital hallways. “It’s hard to watch,” she said in a warm Texas twang.

But there’s nothing she can do. The ER’s 72 rooms are already filled.

“I always feel very, very bad when I walk down the hallway and see that people are in pain, or needing to sleep, or needing quiet. But they have to be in the hallway with, as you can see, 10 or 15 people walking by every minute,” Dusang said.

And the illnesses:

Doctors and nurses say the severity of illness ranges widely and includes abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions and suicide attempts, among other conditions.

Hmmmm...  Sound familiar?  How about this story from the Australian Broadcasting Company:

National Cabinet considers how to deal with an influx of COVID-19 patients, with hospitals already straining
There's something Mark McGowan would rather not talk about.

Mr McGowan, the most popular premier in the country, presides over a health system at breaking point and yet there's not a single case of COVID-19 right now in Western Australia.

Hundreds of non-urgent elective surgeries have been cancelled this month, while ambulance "ramping" — the hours patients in ambulances wait to be admitted into a hospital — has reached a record cumulative high of 6,000 in August.

So West Australians who have been patiently waiting for cataract surgery, for a new hip or knee, or an IVF procedure, are being asked to wait even longer because Perth's emergency departments are struggling.

Just so we are clear.  There is not a COVID problem in the hospitals at this time. The article is asking what would happen if a COVID outbreak manifested while the ERs were swamped. And what are they swamped with?

They do not say.  They also have this story from West Australia - again, no COVID cases but:

Fears over WA's COVID-19 readiness as grim hospital statistics revealed
One of Perth's major hospitals has declared internal emergencies almost once every five days because of extreme pressure on its ability to treat patients.

New figures, obtained by the state opposition, showed there were 490 "code yellows" in the health system in the 12 months to June this year.

Again, zero details on what these illnesses are.  I am willing to take a bet that they are the same as in the first story:

abdominal pain, respiratory problems, blood clots, heart conditions

All of these are the very well known symptoms of a bad reaction to the experimental vaccine.
The Vax is the disease - as simple as that.
