  1. You’ve got to start filming the wards. Unfortunately. That’s the only way you’re going to get the public to change behaviours.

    • Stock footage. This is 🐎💩.

    • @G.W. Rick Hospitals are quickly becoming the place where people go to die not heal. In El Paso, TX that is already happening. It happened in Italy and NY. Now it will happen all across the US. This is the result of Trump’s and Republican herd immunity ignorance. Those of us intelligent enough to protect ourselves will survive. The deniers will start rapidly dying off once the hospitals reach capacity. I recommend you watch the Level 1 Biohazmat protection videos on YOUTUBE to be better informed on how to protect yourself as the numbers of carriers increase. Soon, you will be walking among Covid positive carriers everywhere. Level 1 protection is easy to modify with standard clothing but a good quality mask is essential. I use N95 masks from China through Amazon. Stay safe.

    • When Will the World 🌎 Realize Were living in a Simulation? The Government wants to just Push The Mandatory Vaccines 💉 which have Chips inside them . YES this is the Mark Of The Beast in the Bible! The COVID Cases aren’t ACTUALLY that high, they use All types of Medical Cases to Claim it as “Covid “ to increase fear ! Wake TF up

      I can’t wait for the psychopaths involved in this fraud pandemic to be prosecuted and forced to pay for damages.

      This attorney and the committee he is working with are going after the psychopaths.

  2. Can the adults come into office and save AMERICANS

    This is what happened when a President is irresponsible and unfit to lead. If Trump told the people to listen to the Doctors and expert to simply use Mask and Social distancing is a must. This is what happened when so many STUPID PEOPLE IGNORE THE SCIENCE AND FOLLOW THE THE MAD MAN.

    • You mean the Drs that are constantly changing their tune?

    • Michelle Carter | November 14, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      @Kong 76 not true.

    • Michelle Carter | November 14, 2020 at 4:24 PM | Reply

      @Michael 534 don’t know what history supports that theory. Spanish flu surged until masks and distancing were firmly adhered to. Cant fo it sometimes and then have mass gathering. Doesnt work that way.

    • @Michelle Carter Dr Fauci said Feb 15th ” I would be more concerned about the flu than this virus”

      ” I don’t recommend the public needing to wear masks at this point”..

      They do change their tune along with the CDC. To say I am wrong is asinine. A better response would have been.. well as the information comes in and science gets a better look we will adapt to those findings.

    • @Michael 534 They are successful, look at Japan and Korea, they were able to control the virus with lockdown and mask wearing. You could also see this in Asian countries during the flu season, they wear masks in turn reducing the spread of viruses. Much smaller numbers compared to America.

      Also a lot of people break the mask mandate or go to gatherings which help spread the virus

  4. Of his orangeness isn’t charged with the deaths then the us has lost its way.

    Wow I don’t understand why pl won’t listen to science wear mask 😷 NURSE NEED HELP

  6. This is so crazy, the richest country in the world. In Sydney you can go through a drive thru testing station and get your results 8 hours later. America needs to up their game, so sad.

    • Michael George | November 14, 2020 at 8:33 AM | Reply

      @SelfGoverning Loving Soul Reagan never answered for Beirut.

    • @Suzanne Santos and meanwhile Americans in the middle of a major pandemic are demanding to have large gatherings for thanksgiving & Christmas, while already seeing their cases surging because they couldn’t resist having mass gatherings to celebrate Biden’s win (or rallies for trump for the other side of politics) & Halloween trick or treating!

      Then they look at Australia & say “oh you don’t have it because you’re small & isolated” um no, we don’t have it cause we were smart & used some basic self discipline!

    • OOfania, this video’s not really about testing though, more about the telehealth & drive through vaccination program in Melbourne to address kids not getting regular vaccinations due to fearing going to doctor’s surgeries & covid & the reduction in elective surgery during the pandemic in Sydney, but followed up by massive funding to support catch up surgeries & pushing through far more than usual as soon as things eased up, so as to be ready to focus on covid again at any moment if needed. America should have been doing that during summer, plus of course controlling covid properly! They’re STILL not contact tracing! So in reality, there’s no point them getting a covid test, cause nothing happens if they’re positive!

    • @Lilac Lizard ok I’m in Canberra having a awesome time, enjoy ya weekend mate 🍻🙌🏾🇦🇺

  7. And now he is revving up his minimus for another get together, why should those people get a hospital bed when they get sick?

    • In DC now, you should come.

    • COmpassion? They are under a demonic thrall, they know not what they do

    • @Donnie TRUMP how’s your million maga trally going, did 200 people show up other than anti-government militias and roger stone’s army?
      “In court today, Stone apologized profusely for his actions. Then he admitted something that most observers had expected for quite a while: He’s working closely with various members of the Florida chapter of the Proud Boys, the hard-right, pro-Trump, semifascist group with numerous ties to harder-core white-supremacist organizations. According to multiple reporters in the courtroom today, Stone has admitted he’s coordinating extensively with the group. Stone even said that Jacob Engels — a notorious alt-right InfoWars reporter and all but admitted member of the Proud Boys — has access to Stone’s cell phone and social media accounts.”

  9. Someone needs to hold the Careless Crime family accountable

    American health care workers must be furious, because society and government taking no responsibility

  11. This is happening because the man who’s demanding his job back is NOT DOING HIS JOB! One concession speech means Jack, Donny! Get out of your bunker and DO YOUR JOB! Donny is doing a Stalin!

  12. The con man in chief said we were turning the corner. He lied.
    The con man in chief said it would be over by April. He lied.
    The con man in chief said “it is what it is”. People died.
    The Super Spreader in Chief has helped to spread the virus to more people and places.

    The grifters are killing US.

  14. Trump said the virus would disappear after election instead the US has record levels of infection
    Fitting for this record-breaking failure of a “president”.
    #BYEDON2020

  15. Mitch McConnell is pure evil and he needs to be held accountable for this atrocity

  16. It’s amazing how people think a public holiday like thanksgiving is more important than the current situation.

  17. When all this was happening and getting worse….trump was playing golf.

    • That is a generous desription of what trump does on a golf course…

    • Is it getting worse? Are you seeing it with your own eyes or just watching the news. I remember ABC news getting caught two years ago manipulating video of a fire fight supposedly in the middle East. Turns out it was of a training exercise in Kentucky. I don’t trust the news or what it shows.

      I live two blocks from a hospital and it is operating at normal.

    • You misspelled the name. You mean PELOSI.

    “‘Exhausted’: Tsunami Of Covid-19 Cases Pushes Health Workers To The Breaking Point” motivate us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per their doctor in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica

  19. When I say that people should take responsibility for their part in spreading this virus, my comments get deleted. Please, slow the spread! Wear a mask, social distance, wash hands. Too many are dying.😢

  20. Forget enduring four more years of Trump, I’m not sure we can endure the next 67 days.
