Thanks..... I was wondering what the real unbiased news was in TX, all the MSM are panicking.If you see the breathless twisted news report "Texas Hospitals ICU near capacity!!"
Disputing that report, the CEO says running at 80-90% capacity is common, and ICU capacity is adjustable by need..
..and "...almost 30% of ICU beds.." are corona-virus. Doesn't really sound so dire.
That is exactly what my brother is saying, he is working many more elective and non-emergency cases now, all get the screening and then surgery.A week ago, they opened up hospitals to elective procedures, so mostly empty hospitals filled up. Every patient is tested, I am certain EITHER a positive antibodies or virus test is labelled a "new C-19 hospital admission," even if asymptomatic, and they send you home after bunion or hernia surgery.
They didn't offer in the ER, they just tested to see what was ailing me and especially if I was Covid19. Covid19 negative but pneumonia instead. What the hell, either way I'm sick right ? I just ain't spreading nothing around.Glad you're ok Schmidty, there have been pneumonia shots available for the last few years, especially recommended for seniors, optional along-side flu shots. As I recall Prevnar-13 then a year later the second, PPSV23 or Pneumovax. Question for Schmidty, did you get either or both of those vaccinations? Just asking... to see if they helped or didn't.
Seems I was about 65 or so when, at a yearly routine visit, my Doc told me about, and recommended, both the shot for pneumonia and a separate shot for shingles. Sure, I'll take 'em both in addition to a regular flu shot. Hey, if they gots the shots for something I'll take the shots every time. Can't hurt. Got one for rabies? VD?They didn't offer in the ER, they just tested to see what was ailing me and especially if I was Covid19. Covid19 negative but pneumonia instead. What the hell, either way I'm sick right ? I just ain't spreading nothing around.
They have me on a second round of antibiotics now and it's raising hell with me, big time diarrhea, never know when it's gonna happen !!! Afraid to sit in my car with the leather seats !
I made a note to ask my Doc about those shots, thanks.
