Thanksgiving is going to crush the healthcare system. Hospitals and ICUs are going to fill up. They’re going to send people home to die, and not just from COVID-19. We’re talking heart attacks and car accidents. We’re talking drug and alcohol overdoses.
Such an important sentence.
It seems like people have this idea in their heads that overwhelmed hospitals and health care workers carry on as usual in regard to all non-COVID issues, as if only COVID patients are struggling. Without realizing that the influx of COVID patience forces health care workers to split their time and resources for ALL patients.
