Gotta love the unintended consequences... NOT!

Hospitals all over the US are in the same boat: furloughing doctors and nurses because patients are being told to stay home instead of receive treatment.

It's past time to end this lockdown and get back to normal.

    Medicine is a great business to be in. That's all I'm going to say about that...

      Not as a practitioner it isn't. The money and the job security go to top management in hospitals and insurance companies. The actual health-care workforce is told by the management workfarce, implicitly of course, to cooperate with existing rules and practice patterns or get fired. Dissent is, figuratively speaking, a capital offense. Been there, done that, and survived a medical-board complaint and previously a big hassle with a medical board in another state.

    Wonder if they listed cause of death as Covid-19?!?

      What's funny about that is that any good doctor will tell you that COVID-19 is like other respiratory viruses: it won't kill you by itself. It requires another serious underlying condition such as pneumonia, heart disease, etc. The more serious condition is the actual cause of death and the respiratory ailment (flu, etc.) is what is known as a co-morbidity factor.

      The reprehensible thing is that doctors are being told by the CDC to report any death they even suspect as being COVID-19 related as a death due to COVID-19 - rather than listing it properly as a comorbidity factor. Then also the hospitals get $13,000 per COVID-19 patient they see and $39,000 per patient for those going on ventilators from Medicare - so the financial incentive is there...

    Government is designed to benefit itself and its minions. Any other positive effects on the people are unintended really. Any negative effects on the people are just ignored.
