  1. They should run ads showing all the body bags lingering in hospital hallways and mobile refrigerator trucks. Maybe that would make these idiots understand there are more important things than getting your nails done.

    • there is no crisis in florida as far as icu beds… look for your self… less than 50% being used
      https://covid19.healthdata.org/united-states-of-america/florida

    • It simply won’t matter to the idiots. They will come up with a myriad of BS: “They dump ALL bodies there…even if they die of something other than COVID-19!”; “Fake numbers to scare and control us…”; “EVERYONE that dies of COVID-19 has a pre-existing condition, so if you are healthy, no worries!”; “We need to NOT wear a mask, so herd immunity can happen!!”; “99% don’t get that sick to require hospitalization!”; “It is just a flu!” …. the list goes on and on. These fools think that they know more than doctors, nurses, scientists. They WILL NOT change their attitude. Even if it hits home, when they or their family and friends start dying.

      @mtb416 if we completely did a very strict lock down for 2 months tho it would have been gone and they could have gone back to work. Instead we didn’t now it will never go away. We need to put in the work, it stinks for the jobs, but the economy can’t come back until it’s gone.

      I will summerize news for this year.  Ahhhhh! COVID-19!  A group here… covid “cases” spike.  A group there… covid “cases” surge.  The goal in this phase of the Plandemic is “cases”.  News will not assert that those that showed freedom became sick or tested positive.  News will just plant that seed into your mind.  End of summary.

      Ignore decades of CDC statistics.

    In any confrontation. You relieve the frontline defenders with respite. You bring them to the rear and replace them with new energy. Then rotate. The ones you depend on for medical assurance are dying. There is no capacity to replace the frontline.

    • Yeah. Scary stuff. In the two months that Covid lasted in my country, it was touch and go. I am sad to say that for you, the worst is yet to come. Every day you delay total lockdown, just makes the catastrophe worse.
      Covid is a bit like a Tsunami. You see the initial wave, and then it just keeps piling on. If you lock down NOW, the worst will be in about 4 weeks. Until then, it will just keep piling on. And you already are at full capacity…
      I’d order a whole lot of body bags and start digging some mass graves.

    As a Nurse Practitioner /midwife I am horrified and disgusted that the USA, that touts itself as the best health and Medical care in the world is treating their Health Care Professionals like this. A 12 hour shift is so hard and having to do extra shifts because of poor leadership and management of a Pandemic which The WHO has been warning about for years is inexcusable. Most countries had a Task force in place in response to warnings of a possible Pandemic and still many countries fumbled their response.
    The WHO has mainly American officers on secondment from CDC or various Universities, Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s leading expert on coronaviruses, is American . The U.S. has always had an extraordinary influence at the WHO to the extent that other countries have complained about American influence.
    The USA has a problem with the WHO, fine, do what Australia and the EU have done, call for an investigation into the cause of this Pandemic. WHO fumbled their response. Then call for an investigation as other countries have done.
    I live in a country that values human lives. We mourn every covid death. 108 at last count. A 90 year old Grandmother and Great Grandmother died today. Yes I also know each and every death from Covid.
    I always believed that the USA had those values. The TV and movies always says that . Yet the last 6 months has shown the World just how little value you place on your Grandparents, your parents and if Trump gets his way, on your children and their teachers.

  20. ARIZONA, FLORIDA AND OTHER STATES NEEDS TO HAVE A MASS CIVIL LAW SUIT AGAINST THEIR GOVERNOR FOR NOT FOLLOWING THE CDC REGULATIONS AND KILLING THEIR PEOPLE OVER THE MONEY AND POLITICS
