Is it true that in the States staff who work in other departments in hospitals have been sacked since non-essential surgeries have been cancelled? If that is true surely these medical personal could be deployed in other more critical areas of health care?

Just curious. I am pretty sure if this is true that there would be plenty of other countries willing to give jobs to trained and qualified medical professionals right now.

Some are. It's one of the downsides of privatized health care. In other areas, there are shortages of health care workers and they are begging folks to come out of retirement.

Finally somewhat good news here in Germany

Quote
Where are people best protected from Covid-19? According to a new ranking, Germany is currently the second safest country (first: Israel)  in the world to be in during the coronavirus crisis.
Given its initially high infection rates, Germany has been extremely efficient and has successfully stopped the spread of the disease without reaching the level of other countries – this will give Germany considerable economic advantages after the pandemic.

This is far from over but after weeks of stress and scary news, positive news are more than welcomed. So far we only had one officially confirmed case of a young woman infected with the virus in our town four weeks ago. She's not quite over the hill yet but doing fine. Hopefully things will get better in other countries soon as well.

Yeah, I think Germany killed it with the testing.  Thumbup

That out of state trip I mentioned in an earlier post-  it was going to be to San Diego Comic Con.  They just announced it today that they are cancelling the 2020 event.  Not postponing-cancelling until 2021.  We'll get refunds for the tickets we bought, but it sucks.  I was really looking forward to going.  I've never been to California before, and it sounded like it was going to be a really great time.

Damn, sorry to hear you are going to miss out on that one.

claws, I hope Germany continues to keep it under control and serve as an example of how to deal with something like this.

you are RIGHT,indy, the death count is way low according to the people i know in the medical community, because autopsies are rarely testing for covid19. and as for people with underlying issues being referred to as covid19 related if the person tested positive, THEY ARE . many people are dying because this disease debilitated their already compromised systems, and if they HADN'T been infected , they'd be alive now.

And you're certain of this? Presumptions have no place in modern medicine. Why trust any doctor at all at that point?

All the guidelines say is that if a person dies with all the symptoms of COVID-19 - which American doctors, especially in NY, have become all too familiar with - and no test is available, the attending physician may list Corona as the probable cause of death.  Doctors have always had this right.

did anyone see that Texas and Florida are dumber than a box of rocks cause they reopened partly, with Florida opening their beaches because the governor has rocks for brains and doesn't care if anyone dies of this virus texas too and anyone who rushes out to the beach is a complete moron/idiot/F.idiot....etc..

instead of staying home any i dunno maybe surviving this crisis. i dunno why the people of Florida are in such a panic they haven't been in shut down that long compared to the rest of us. i wonder how long it's gonna be until those states are hot spots? but than we have a president who cares nothing for human life and only cares about money. i was watching a video where they are giving billions of money to their rich friends and it was a first for me cause it was making me so angry i shut the video off. those rich people are not suffering like the rest of us at all

i sound angry about the beaches and opening any of the states right now because of the fact that if they do that right now with millions of people now dead and dying. and than you have no doubt cases that aren't even being open and than i learned yesterday that they announced on Friday that they are letting anyone who isn't a doctor or in a job where you need to know if someone is sick the bosses in charge don't have to tell their worse if there are any infected if they don't choose too and the WHO was okay with this.

and it makes me mad because when we have that and cases where it's not reported but hid from nursing home and so forth. how the hell are we suppose to stop this  and get back to normal? at this rate we won't have lives again until 2030!  i'm glad that Germany was smart to be able to do that but here in america where they care more about money than people lives makes me ashamed to even be living here.

so in this post yeah it does anger me. man do we really need George Carlin right now

There is a joke going around just now where people are discussing Covid-19. It goes "What borders on stupidity?" Answer "Canada and Mexico." People in countries like India are saying that while they have it bad, they at least have the comfort of knowing they are not the US. On the other hand, Italy is saying that it messed up its response to the outbreak, but the UK hasn't looked at what Italy did wrong and is going to end up worse off. I've not checked out any domestic news articles for a few days though, so I have no real idea how bad it is (or isn't), over here.

ya know as someone who was born here in the states if you want to crack on our country now i don't really mind because of the such poor leadership we currently have in Washington.  the stupidity factor seems to tip the scales more in the states most i think because of that. others on here may take offense on your remarks but i'm not one of them.

another reason why i went off is because i've been off work for nearly 40 days now and being cooped up is not only stressful it's just plain boring and not being able to be around people really gets to ya when i'm a people person and i always have been. the good thing about this and the only good thing really is that i'm not alone in feeling this way just like everyone on this board also feels that way no doubt. but when you have people weather they are suppose to be leaders  or just the general public not give a rat's ass for their own health and safety not just for them but for others as well.

it just makes me angry that all i want right now is things to go back to normal as  we all do here. but how can we do that if these morons are going to beaches and protesting staying at home making this thing even WORSE! maybe infecting others people as well and therefore we will be stuck inside even longer because of their stupidity. i mean it was bad enough with those morons who were on spring break but ya know what? those idiots at least came to their senses. that one young guy i dunno his name did apologize for not being at home.

than there was a story awhile back where one went home and his dad would not let him inside the house. one wonders what did happen to that kid?
there was a bad tornado here about a week ago and we got lucky and it didn't hit us THANK GOD!

but a lot of people lost their houses and their safety so they are now in a gym with a slew of people and that's the only place that the police and hospitals etc.. were able to find for them so that's not by choice. 

that's the exception ya know? i saw Josh Brolin apparently posted on instagram a picture of him with his kids. sorry for my bad spelling
and he wasn't hugging them but he visited them.

he got called out for it by fans and he was man enough to say you are all right i was an idiot and i wasn't thinking i wasn't being responsible at all.
he since took the picture down and i give him major respect for admitting that to everyone
