What about people who drive under the influence and get in an accident? What about self inflicted wounds or overdoses? How about those who don’t exercise enough? Those who overeat? Can we just not treat everyone who doesn’t follow CDC guidelines? The CDC has an opinion, so do economists, mental health experts, etc. There has to be a balance, thus far it has been 100% on CDC and flawed models. If the models bore out then we’d be in a different spot.Hunters1993 wrote: ↑Sat May 02, 2020 11:06 pmSorry I didn’t answer statements sooner. I had my three 12 hour nursing shifts this weekend. Took a long shower and took a long nap.
No one is asking anyone to stay home for next two months. The governor and the cdc are asking for May and maybe June before things open up slowly. Follow the recommendations of the governor and cdc and then will be happy to care for you.
For those who can’t follow the governor and cdc rules can sign the contract and stay out of the hospital for those who don’t follow rules. It’s for those who can’t just hold on till end of May. Your world won’t crumble to the ground by end of May. Relax! If you can’t relax till then go and take your chances but stay out of the hospital and leave those few ICU beds for those who can follow the rules for two more weeks.
As of late last week Mayo and their entire complex of hospitals in Rochester had all of 11 Covid-19 positive inpatients. Mayo is a regional level 1 trauma center, one of 3 in Minnesota. Sanford in Sioux Falls isn’t overwhelmed even with the massive outbreaks at packing plants in Sioux Falls and Worthington. Slow down a bit in the cataclysmic worrying.
