This is good news. We didn't even have to use this field hospital, which means the dangers that our regular hospitals being overwhelmed has not been realized.

    and, NY State hospitals overloaded so bad a military hospital ship was brought in. -->
    From memory, capacity about 1,000, number occupied ~twenties? Were all NY hospitals full? Not nearly.

    But, situation in Iran, Italy, Spain, quite serious, UK worried, in China, well it would be good to know, they are reporting zero new cases, the truth is out there ...

      the truth is always out there, but the media never tells it.
      Will we learn that the entire shutdown in the US was premature based on media induced panic?
      Was it another intentional treasonous attempt to destroy the elected president?

      The truthful banner of the New Yellow Times:
      Never let a potential crisis go to waste.

    “Don’t let this decision give you the impression that we are out of the woods."

    Right, it means you were never in the woods in the first place.

    “But civilian hospitals in the Seattle area have canceled so many elective procedures that bed space is no longer an urgent problem,”

    This demonstrates something else: a significant part of our "healthcare is a right" demand is entirely elective.

    “Understanding that our hospitals in our region have capacity, including ICU beds and ventilators, we are making the right decision to allow other cities to have these resources and capacity. While Seattle fought hard for these resources, it’s clear other communities are in desperate need of this high-quality medical facility and personnel,”

    Emphasis added. A clear demonstration of panic-driven decision making.
