In UK you are not allowed to visit anyone in hospital with the virus, dying or not. And you can't visit anyone in a care home or nursing home

That should never be a decision anyone is faced with. The lack of preparation by our leadership is baffling

Dr. Frank Gabrin contracted the disease because he didn't have access to Personal Protective Equipment. His friends and family hope his death will galvanize the state to act.

So sad, and so unnecessary. My heart goes out to his husband and his friends and family, but my heart going out is not what we need. We need proper, safe PPE for these worker, and at every level. It's criminal how unprepared we have been, no thanks to the foot-dragging and misinformation by those at the top who should know better, but just don't care.

I’m so sorry for his loss. There is nothing anyone can say to ease any of the pain he’s going through. Thank you, Dr. Gabrin, for your love and sacrifice.

I think most us would react first with the urge to hug his husband and other loved ones to let them know we care deeply. My next reaction, though, is that it was not insightful to have a stockpile or manufacturing source in-country, but the most horrendously shocking realization is that even knowing of these unnecessary deaths, a significant part of America (including those in DC) openly promote money before people as the American way - not only those in medicine but all of us. I'm old- the lt gov of Texas says I should be willing to "sacrifice" myself to provide America with a better economic future and no one in DC & very few conservatives on social media are telling him to take a seat. So - does the pro-life movement really want to be represented by a philosophy that ABORTS years off the end of life and off the lives of our medical providers because we're economically inconvenient?

This breaks my heart to think of how many lives he could have saved if he had the proper PPE. Rest In Peace Dr.

No it is ridiculous to say that mom and baby should be separated! Especially at birth. Numerous studies show that not only emotional and physiological growth are of prime importance but vital! The antibodies created by the mother protects the baby, whether the mom has chicken pox or the flu or covid19!!
Know your rights. CDC and hospital can only strongly recommend and intimidate. Don’t give in. Do what you feel is right for you and baby.

To make people sleep in a parking lot when there are thousands of hotel rooms sitting empty in the city is morally bankrupt.
Las Vegas unveils 'social distancing rectangles' for the homeless, instead of actual shelters

From a PR standpoint alone, why wouldn't ONE hotel use this opportunity to step up? That would be the one that was remembered when business is back. I know that's where I would spend my money vs. others hotels that did nothing. Jesus, even setting something up in the covered parking stuctures away from the elements would be more humane than this.

And that is why god will continue to cast this virus on us until we understand his lesson - treat each other with respect, love and care and let money be just a commodity.
The world still doesn’t get it...... this virus will be around for years if we don’t wake up.

It is shameful that one of the superpowers of the world and the country of 'plenty' treats its most vulnerable citizens, many of whom may be veterans like this. Las Vegas considers this an acceptable solution when as mentioned there are actual shelters/hotel rooms.Really??? This is unconscionable and should cause the citizens of Las Vegas to object...They do not deserve this as human beings.

This was after the shelter had to shut down due to some testing positive. They had to disinfect the whole place. This was not the ideal situation for sure. Many who stayed there were grateful to have a safe place to sleep non the less.

This is simply the true face of USA predatory capitalism. Profits before people.
If America ever was great maybe that was the secret. Individualism, self serving society and government with a good dose of narcissism.
The individualism people are so proud of is also a me myself and I society.

Has anyone ever wondered why the hell he has extra ventilators? I mean .. it's not like you walk into your garage and go.. "well look at that, totally forgot about these 20,000 ventilators..."

Dude shipped a bunch of BiPAP machines. Not the same thing.

This is an old article. The "ventilators" have already been delivered, and were deemed unusable by hospitals for their needs.
4 hours 58 minutes ago
Musk donated BiPAP machines, not ventilators. Maybe less severe cases can use the BiPAPs while the people who need invasive intubation can have the ventilators.

Are these the ventilators that turned out to be discontinued CPAP machines?

A lovely spot of togetherness in a chaotic world. Good on them and a good example of religious tolerance. Something a lot of people need to learn. Well done.

Good for them. To the other people saying this won’t help? It’s how they get through the day. If you don’t believe fine but it’s their belief and if it doesn’t affect you who cares. Nothing wrong with believing. That said it doesn’t mean you discount what the health professionals say.

I suggested a month ago that all hotels should house healthcare workers so they don't have to worry about their families being exposed. . I wrote my senators and state reps about this. Most workers are working 12-16 hour shifts many days in a row. One eats, sleeps, work, and repeat. They also could travel by a bus to work and back therefor limiting Uber, lift, public transportation as well.

Hotels and motels are needed for so many essential workers. All of these people are being exposed and then have the stress of possibly infecting family.

This has so many different answers depending on so many things. In the first place, not everyone gets their insurance through their job. For those who do, it will be different for each group of employees, even within the same company. And then different for people within that group depending on their personal circumstances.
No single answer is possible.

Most people that file bankruptcy do so due to medical bills, and now many people lost their jobs and consequently their insurance. I wonder how many American’s will go bankrupt due to COVID19? It is unbelievable that we have such a broken system.
yesterday at 19:59
Most people can keep their insurance after leaving the job, they just have to pay full price which most are surprised to learn their employers portion was thousands a month. The bottom line of this whole discussion is most easily explained by saying having access to health and food are not considered human rights in America.

We can be treated for Covid for free. But, done after that. Yeah, we’re all screwed. I pay private insurance. It’s high and I’m probably going to die before I meet my deductible. But I’m thankful. That’s the truth, and it’s really sad.

Exactly, but there is an insurance plan called "Cobra" that is for the unemployed. But last time I would have used it, it would have cost be over $2000 a month to have.
