Florida Doctor Discusses Battling Coronavirus

    1. @S McDonald Wow, Someone watches CNN 24/7, Still hanging on to the bleach and dewormer conspiracy theory from CNN. Oh, and you do know q-anon was a joke by right wing trolls to watch leftist cry. And you literally fell for it. Everyone knows this except a few CNN leftist and a few occupy democrat idiots.
      Keep watching, you give us normal people some laughs.

  1. A lot of people in Florida are like children .They have to put their hands in fire before they learn it burns.Sadly they are adults refusing the vaxinie for freedumb.

    1. @ALAB Does the existence of the vaccine have anything to do with your totals? Seems like most of the deaths in the northeast were pre-vaccine. Now, they are preventable, and you will not get vaccinated.???????

    2. I really hope these anti-vaxxers don’t get vaccinated.
      Hope also they don’t contaminate vulnerable people on their way out.
      They are too weak to accept reality and adapt.
      We have to let evolution follow its course.

    3. @S McDonaldThats a good point. I live in a sea of red, and its crazy isolating here in Mid Michigan. I have to live with my lips shut all the time so I don’t get tripped out on everyday. Its refreshing to hear someone rational.

    1. Leftist———— red states are killing everyone with covid.

      Smart person———— that’s odd, here’s the real numbers with deaths per million,,,,,
      Florida——- 1,819. DPM
      Texas———- 1,915. DPM
      Mississippi——-2,704. DPM
      Kentucky———-1,692. DPM

      New York———- 2,807. DPM
      New Jersey ———-3,012. DPM
      Rhode Island——-2,006. DPM
      Massachusetts———- 2,687. DPM
      Connecticut————2,336. DPM

      Leftist——— “that’s racist, Asian hate”

      Smart person———-are you DAF

      Leftist———yes.

    3. @cc Rider not an accurate analogy….the pilots had a higher purpose ( to blow up a ship or whatever) whereas anti vaxers are just dummies with Freedumb….

  2. People will get their family pets vaccinated but won’t take a shot that protects others. Children are at tremendous risk yet the dog is more important. Some principled stand for “rights”.

    1. I have an old friend who’s a NURSE, and she won’t get vaccinated because she doesn’t trust the government! I mean, of COURSE the government can’t be trusted, they’ve proven it time after time…but there is absolutely NO plus side to having your economy and work force come to a grinding crawl, so of COURSE the government is trying to get rid of the virus. This is the same government that tried to commit genocide in order to advance capitalism, soooo….

    2. @Cheshire Cat Exactly. dead people can’t pay taxes or go into the army. No government is going to deliberately bankrupt themselves.

  3. God bless all the health care workers to have to deal with the stupidity of some of these people. Praying fir America.

    1. Agreed . Stupid to take a jab if you are healthy. And it is unsafe for people with diabetes, heart problems ,weight problems. Your Dr is supposed to tell you this. The jab is for healthy people. It’s deadly to the unhealthy. There is a warning on it. But they don’t tell you that. Cause they don’t share that info openly. So if they aren’t being transparent then I don’t trust them. I got covid . Stayed home to stop thr spread and I’m back maskless and unvaxxed because my body made the antibodies

    2. Praying for ones who don’t want to save others by refusing to get it, its much better than not having any protection from it Think of others your vulnerable loved ones, we must help the MDs, RNs – suppirt staff to keep them safe, healthy and still doing their jobs amidst these very difficult times!! Keep Faith and Trust God, He allowed science to develop this vaccinesafter all!

  4. Wow! Freedom to be an antivaxer and not wear a mask has a price I guess. I’m definitely no going there for spring break.

    1. @ALAB your medical expertise is quite impressive. btw..What is a ” leftist”? Let’s see: anyone who isnt white. anyone who isnt a racist.
      anyone who actually has an education.. Some one who believes in human rights and actually cares about other people. Anyone who loves someone you dont approve of. Anyone who has more than you, does more, knows more, and has traveled more than 30 miles from moms house. Sound right?

    2. I think since these people don’t want the vaccine. Send them to other countries who would be thankful to get them.

  5. Over a year ago we prayed for a vaccine. Patients in severe conditions on their death bed prayed for a vaccine, if not for themselves but for others in the future. We prayed for a vaccine even half as effective as the one we have now. We got the vaccine over 9 months ago and millions refuse to take it. Delta variant is obviously worse than the origin strain. If half of Americans have been vaccinated and the Delta variant has surged this bad, imagine if the Delta variant was present 15 months ago, the cases and deaths would have been over 3 times as much. Also by not getting vaccinated millions are making the possibility of an even worse variant evolving much more possible. We develop things faster with AI similar to how we decoded DNA exponentially faster than previously thought possible. The vaccine has been given to over 170 million Americans with very little serious side effects so in a way its the most tested vaccine ever. We need to answer the prayers of people who died a year ago, and take the vaccine!

    1. @Dan Alexander Audio Fierce, strong and independent womxn (and those identifying as womxn) such as Rep. Houlahan, Cher, Rachel Levine, Barbra, Rose McGowan, Ilhan Omar, Kamala Harris, Alyssa Milano, Benny Drama, Nancy, Patrisse Cullors, Damian Is Amazing, Elizabeth Holmes and RuPaul etc. are making the world a spectacularly better place, by doing all of the heavy lifting, as they embrace their majestic authenticity and fluid gender identity. Such astounding bravery and courage, right?

  6. Those governors should be held accountable for the mismanagement of their own states and I feel the actions taken to keep citizens safe are not being enforced and there has to be something that can override the governors decision to ban mask mandate.

      Smart person———-are you DAF

      Leftist———yes.

    2. Thank goodness our Oregon governor put a mask mandate on statewide a few weeks ago. She cares about her citizens.

  7. DeSantis is not fit to be a leader. He does not have the guts to admit he has made a mistake, therefore deserves no respect. He reminds me of the fresh lieutenants who gave the most ridiculous orders in Vietnam to charge the enemy and cowards behind a tree when the shooting starts, whimpering without a clue of what to do next. Those idiots also got a lot of people killed.

  8. If we’d been a bunch of whiny, ignorant crybabies when the polio vaccine was mandatory, half the country would be paralyzed by now. You’re welcome.

    1. @Mary JaneBad Side effects are, usually, extremely rare.
      Compared to SAVING Your Country! A Trumblin’ette, no doubt.
      Or, letting ‘Hundreds of 1.000s’ of ‘Fellow-Americans’ DIE, AGAIN*! … An High Risk Senior, I’ve had mine, (April & May). And, No worse for wear!

    2. @Kathy Adair Opiod overdoses and long term use have killed millions and millions of people bet yet we don’t even blink an eye to that disease. Friends, families suffer from there disease and yet we still cant find the cure for cancer or solve global warming. So let’s put all our emphasis, money, power and greed towards covid vaccines and vaccines e the world. Only to have it come back with a vengeance. It’s never going to end, so vaccinate the obese, the ill and the elderly and anyone that wants one. Other then that give us our freedom to put this temporary treatment in our bodies if that’s what we choose.

    3. @Kathy Adair bad side effects are actually quite common. Almost 80% of immunized people I know have suffered some way shape or form.

    4. Yeah. Why wear seatbelts? Why wear helmets when you ride ? Maybe these precautions won’t save you % but it sure does give you a fighting chance of survival

    5. @Mary Jane and there have been people who got the polio vaccine and got polio because of said vaccine. So what’s your point? Nothing is % infallible but the Covid19 does save lives

  9. I’m so looking forward to voting AGAINST ever member of the GOP on the ballot during the midterm elections. We need to make them pay dearly for putting short term political gain ahead of the public health.

    1. We need to vote out the democrats for not following science. Flu vaccines never stopped the flu. It’s only going to get worse and all biden is doing is doubling down on what trump already did.

    2. @Nathan K you need to get educated. And pay attention. The Covid virus is here to stay, just like the flu. Listen and retain: flu and Covid vaccines do NOT cure flu and Covid. The vaccines only keep a person from getting so sick that they die. Got it? It’s really not rocket science.

  10. You should have patients who are now fighting for their lives because they fell for the lies told by Fox News, Trump and DeSantis, telling others to take the vaccine 24/7 and force Fox News to give them air time.

    1. I think you need to review and edit what you have written , one more time, because you are not actually saying what you mean to say. And I agree with you .

  11. To paraphrase the Doctor: Hey you, politician, leave medical things to medical personnel and only take care of what is rightly political matters.

  12. Those hospitalised Americans who recover from COVID-19 will die from heart attacks and strokes when they receive their bills for their ICU stays.

    1. March 2020 before masking or Lockdowns, I got covid at work. The testing was terrible, the hospitals were packed. They were running out of literally everything. I was sent home, it was a “moderate case”….
      I wound up with damage to my heart, lungs, and had a couple small strokes. Not sure I could have survived a huge medical bill.

  13. Shout out to the respiratory therapist. They don’t get enough to credit these days. Who do you think is running the ventilators?

  14. I don’t think I will ever look at a doctor or nurse anywhere and not remember the awfulness they have endured for us. Thank You, Thank you!!

  15. Trump did what Hitler tried and failed to do. He broke “HOPE” and “FAITH” in America on a large scale.
