      Watching from abroad, the situation for US healthcare workers seems to have become quite abusive. Every other country has had waves but it’s been unrelenting since it started in the US

  4. North Dakota nurses should boycott! There is a nursing shortage all over the country! They should go somewhere where they are appreciated!

  5. americans like to wave their flags on veterans day and 4th of july and talk about patriotism and sacrifice, but you just ask a citizen to sacrifice for less than 1 year by wearing a mask when in public and they can’t even do that… smh

    • Unfortunately other pandemics are on the way. Since the AIDS outbreak, serious new outbreaks are occurring every two years. We will have a far more intelligent president at the helm for the next four years. However it looks like we’re stuck with the same Republican morons in Congress and State governments. Let’s cross our fingers nothing worse than Covid is coming.

      Yes… im over it just selfish 😒

    • That’s one of my biggest pet peeves, the flag hugging and blathering about their personal liberties being infringed upon, their stilted definitition of patriotism. I live (in Canada) in an area not devastated by Covid 19, we have low numbers and deaths, I still wear a mask, not because I’m told to, but because it’s the right thing to do, the small part I can do to prevent the spread, not get sick and not overburden the health care system. But, these red states in particular and voters of a certain persuasion,…….enough said. Hopefully this turns out to be an example of Darwinism at it’s finest, but unfortunately like stupid drunk drivers, they take out innocents with them.

    • Totally agree!

    • @CZ FanGrrl I lived in Winnipeg for 3.5 years 5 years ago. My mom moved back there after 53 years in the states.
      It’s nice to talk to her and hear what real leadership is like instead of this death cult game show host. 😡

    Did you know that the homeless people in Cuba, Canada, UK, Scandinavian countries, Western Europe & Australia, New Zealand & Japan have better Health Care than the average American? Ever wonder why we are ranked anywhere from 17th-29th in overall health care services?

    Yep..better be at the table negotiating because the trumpers have you on their menu and they don’t care if you live or die.

    I pray for Drs and nurses daily I wish people stop acting like kids and grow up Jesus.

    • We can thank our Republican geniuses in charge. They thrive on spreading disinformation with no regard to how many are harmed. If they would just listen to OUR medical advisors like their counterparts in other nations do we could get out of this mess.

    • Exactly! I was talking to my colleague this morning about more than 1700 healthcare workers who died due to Covid. People should think about the frontline / essential workers and do everything possible make things worse than what it is now!

  10. Sorry it seems the legislative deem health professionsonals as dispensable , who forces a symptomatic to work.

  11. Meanwhile, in t’rump world, everything is fine. Perfectly fine. Never been finer in the history of fine. Believe me!
    🤔🙄 😂🤣

    OMFG. Insane. In Australia we’ve made big changes in labour relations just to keep infected people away from work and at home.

  13. Masks and soap. What’s the big deal? Can’t they afford masks and soap? I never leave home without one.

  14. All hospitals need to close due to covid

  15. The craziest thing about this pandemic is that the US has learnt nothing after 9 months.
    WHO simple 3 point plan: Social distance, wash your hands and wear a mask.
    US Covid = 263,298+ Taiwan = 7 (x37,614) New Zealand = 25 (x10,532) China = 4,634 (x56).
    Warp speed? 56 times more deaths than China. Trump is to blame but Americans allow it to continue. Idiots!

      You need to stop quoting China, China always lies about it’s statistics. Quote Japan, South Korea, Australia, Taiwan is fine, New Zealand.

  16. Millions of recently homeless and yet no stimulus package for the people. BLAME CONGRESS.

  17. Republican geniuses hard at work making medical decisions, even though they have absolutely no qualifications. When will America learn the Republicans are totally useless?

  18. Working our great healthcare staff to death, how cruel this country has become. Our cruelty is only matched by this country’s hate and racism, another sign of a fallen empire.

    Let’s talk. As celebrations take place around the world for democracy the US has passed some devastating milestones – nearly 200,000 COVID-19 infections a day and 257,000 deaths. For many months some Americans have resisted wearing protective masks because they, “Take away freedom.” Is this really about taking away freedoms?
    We are a county founded on the compassionate rule of law. We have seat belt laws and second-hand smoke laws. These are just two small examples of laws enacted to protect us when we cannot protect ourselves and each other. When functioning properly our representatives in government have the ability, as defined by constitutions, charters, etc., to do those things we cannot do all by ourselves. This may include building highways, providing K-12 education and let’s not forget protecting us from deadly forest fires, hurricanes and our national defense. Governors, legislators and judges, in addition to the media, are working as best as they can, as quickly as they can and with the best available public health information to keep all of us safe; individually we do not have the collective expertise, human and financial resources to manage these challenges. If they need to do this legally by decree, executive order or other provisions allowed them during emergencies then they are doing their jobs.
    Although most people are doing the best they can to save lives there are some powerful few who are literally killing people. Take Trump and his super spreader events. A Stanford University study found his rallies have killed 700 people and infected 30,000. Columbia University published a study recently on how 130,000-210,000 lives could have been saved if the Trump administration and his devotees had not politicized science a pandemic that has infected over 53 million and killed 1,300,000 world-wide – so far. Approximately 40% of the infected are asymptomatic and never know they may be spreading COVID according to the CDC.
    There is good news. The US government may start distributing a vaccine by the end of the year. It will go to the most vulnerable populations first including first responders. It does take weeks after the first inoculation for the vaccine to take full effect and more than one booster shot may be necessary. No one knows the duration of immunity for anyone who has recovered from COVID or from any particular vaccine. Pfizer vaccine showed 90% immunity but only for seven days. More needs to be understood. Perhaps the singular greatest problem with regard to vaccines is that too many people have been dissuaded from even getting vaccinated at all. If that is the case, it will prolong moving forward precipitously. It is possible we may be wearing masks well through 2021. Our best line of defense remains masks, social distancing, etc. By taking these basic precautions the University of Washington projects we can save over 65,000 lives by March 2021. Remember, this virus is about 8X deadlier than the 2019 flu and is the third leading cause of death in the US only behind heart disease and cancer. Please fact-check this information yourself. Just one idea – A national public service announcement program on the proper fit and use of masks, hand washing (20 seconds), social distancing, etc. Facing the truth is empowering, freeing. The sooner the more people accept reality, the sooner we can recover together as a country – grieve those we have loved and lost – and collectively address other urgent concerns.
    One last thing – we are fortunate. Do the people resisting wearing a mask really have no understanding of what is true loss of your freedoms? Have we learned nothing from history: slavery, disenfranchisement, imprisonment in jails, ghettos and concentration camps, inscription into armies, forced marriage, starvation… Over 85,000 children (under five) in Yemen have died since 2015 directly because of US foreign policy. Currently, millions more Yemen children, women and men face starvation but we can still save them by providing immediate emergency assistance with our International allies. We just have to care enough about their freedom, their literal right to life. I’d like to believe we are capable of understanding false equivalences of facial coverings and the right to life, freedom from extreme suffering. This may not be what we have expected but it is nothing new, not really. And we each have superpowers – our infinite capacity for creative adaptation and a little thing called love. – Please feel free to share this post. Take care, stay safe out there and thank you.

  20. The Governor is drinking the Trump Kool-Aid.
