The Last Emperor -Lazarus -The Last Emperor -Lazarus - The mortality rate will very dramatically depending on whether people can get medical assistance. The virus is highly contagious so it can spread quickly. If hospitals are overwhelmed, then there aren't enough repirators and ICU beds for those who need it. In Italy, they are turning away people over age 60 and basically leaving them to survive or die on their own.
If hospitals are overwhelmed, they aren't able to treat everyone and the mortality rate is much higher.
If hospitals aren't overwhelmed, they can save a lot of people. The mortality rate would be much lower.
This is the whole logic behind flattening the curve, and hence the lockdown.
Perfect "flood the zone" victim right here ^
The ol' "hospitals are overwhelmed!" "not enough ventilators and beds!" propaganda. Consider your brain zone flooded.
Are you sure it's propaganda? The projections are claiming that NY State won't have enough ICU beds and respirators within a couple of days.
But if you don't believe government projections, here's an interview from a NYC ER doctor who is saying that the hospitals are quickly becoming "overwhelmed":
"Dr. Craig Spencer, who works as an emergency room doctor at Columbia University Medical Center, warned that patient “case numbers are increasing on a daily basis and soon our hospitals are going to be overwhelmed.”
“At the rate that we’re putting people on ventilators, at some hospitals one to two per hour, the simple math shows it’s only a matter of time until we run out,” Spencer said.
Yes it's fucking propaganda. All of these media and medical talking heads got their cues on how to "flood the zone!" from their elitist medical prick masters during their "Event 201" coronavirus pandemic excercise, and that's exactly what they're doing.
If in fact any of these hospitals are "overwhelmed" or "running out of ventilators", and that's a big fucking if, it's because the media is scaring the fuck out of all of the zone flooded brainlets, so they go to the hospitals for any slight sniffle or cough.
Every. Fucking. Year. we have tons of cases of coronaviruses, but this year it's political and they are using it to their advantage. People like you need to shut down your PC's and turn off your TV's for the remainder of the year.
Nowhere do you get out on a ventilator for a sniffle. Period.
