    you can send a signal to a satellite in orbit and get it back in microseconds, but you can’t fix an extra room in a hospital? I’m thinking most of you have gone totally crazy to even entertain this crap

      If you are so smart what are your suggestions? You think its just throwing a bed in a room? How about personal and equipment? Plans?

    I really wish I had the chance to give all of you non believers a tour without no ppe through the ICU, maybe your neurons might start to work..

    • Convid really is like a new religion. There is ZERO proof that it exists, but you must believe anyway. We ARE non believers. Facts matter. Oh look, there’s a unicorn….

    • On the brink? There are 149 in ICU under a ventilator in all Ontario. The capacity of ICU with ventilators in Ontario is 2811. So since when 5% of capacity is being on the brink, stupid?

    • Dumbest post yet. prove its covid. I will wait.

    • I’d gladly tour without no PPE. See what I did there?

  11. Can the Crap!!! Dire! At the brink! Hotspots! This ‘doctor’ should be stripped of his license. BTW, “hallway healthcare” has been going on for decades. LONG before the Convid.

    They have had 10 months to add emergency/ICU beds. Are we to understand this was not done. Trump brought in Navy ships and added thousands of beds in temporary hospitals in arenas, conference centres etc during wave 1 Did the Canadian Government overlook this just like they forgot to order vaccines .

  13. Of course they are ……………..

    Why is there not a facepalm button.

  14. The Ontario Guv….had…hospital wait times, and capacities available “transparency”….now it is not updated due to Covid….so…if I live close to….3 hospitals….and 2 are booked solid….where would I choose to go?

  15. My opinion. My. IDEIA 🤔👈there is. Twenty. Mega ✝barns closed because. Of. The. Coronabeervirus Nomore beef. No. Milk no more $$$$$$$🙀just. Remove. The. Sleepy. Benches. 😴💤. And have. Nice. Cozy. Places. Is a hospital. And a funeral. Home. 🤔. Comfortable. ??? 🤔🙀✝🙏💔✝
