Indiana...and where would that be?No, I am saying the CDC numbers are too low. All I can verify is that in this state, in this major city - what the hospitals are dealing with is much worse than what CDC shows.Do you suspect that the cdc is putting out inaccurate figures for the death count to date? If the death count is really less than four thousand, that would mean less than one covid 19 death per hospital in the usa. Do you trust the cdc figure?As I have said, my son is a Repiratory care Specialist at a major childrens hospital, and my daughter is a respiratory therapist at a major metro hospital.
She calls after almost every day she works. She gets upset, she is afraid for herself also obviously.
Of the five ICU departments they have, 3 are now all CV-19 patients. Two of their floors are now CV-19 patients. All have advanced cases because they do not accept patients unless their condition is advanced.
People in their 20s and 30s are the worse. It seems that if you are of that age, and you get advanced symptoms, you actually have less of a chance of survival than someone older with advanced symptoms.
She cries daily now, they have to reuse masks over and over, the what ifs when they have to change out of their clothes into their street clothes to go home...what if they didn't get totally clean, what if.... they pass it to their spouse or child...what if....
When a patient is dying, they can only choose one family member to say their goodbyes to. And they are in the room when they do that.
