I was reading that stroke cases are down 40% nationwide. Docs believe people are ignoring symptoms to avoid hospitals.
My friend was saying most of his ICU is Covid, which doesn’t make sense since it his Ward was almost always full from other types of patients before Covid. They’re all wondering where these other cases are (strokes, heart attacks, cancer surgery patients, etc).
He thinks they are going to start seeing a wave of really sick (non Covid) patients soon. People who didn’t seek care or didn’t get the amount of medical attention needed because of the focus on Covid.
Our leaders have been warned tho. And millions of Americans have seemingly been “radicalized” overnight. Especially the younger generation. That is a huge win to me. I’m not expecting grand sweeping changes immediately. But the seed has been planted.
