Thread Name: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
All Idaho, Alaska and Montana hospitals are on [crises status].
translated: The entire state is on a kind of DNR where a triage of patients will now deny hospital service to those who are judged to probably not survive. This will apply to all patients whether they have Covid or not.
The mantra of the right that safety standards be it masks, vaccines or other mitigating procedures is a 'personal matter' is clearly not true.

I suppose this is happening due to the thin healthcare network in those states as well as the overwhelming pandemic numbers. I'm sorry, people are more than just numbers.
This development is a challenge for gallows humor comedians but I'm sure it can be done. I imagine 'crises status' might work well all the time to save money, time and suffering for patient's families, besides the dead don't pay hospital bills reliably.
