Healthcare System during the Covid19 Pandemic

1. Medical experts were ignored about Covid19 Pandemic
2. The Federal and many state governments denied the potential harm of the Covid19 Pandemic
3. The Federal and many state governments did not prepare by stocking up on Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & other medical supplies & equipment.
4. The Federal and many state governments left medical professionals unprotected as they fight Covid19.
5. The Federal and state governments don’t seem to understand that the PPE is not just for Doctors, Nurses and other medical staff it also protects patients. If you have to keep the same PPE on all day the medical person is at higher risk but so is the patient. Whatever patient A might have has a greater chance of being spread to patient B if the Doctor or Nurse is wearing the same PPE with every patient.
6. Our healthcare system is now fracturing as Doctors, Nurses and other medical staff are being fired, furloughed or having significant pay cuts.
7. Why is this happening in a global pandemic? Because our healthcare system has had drastic cuts in revenue. Our healthcare system is a business not a public service.
8. Healthcare workers whose lives are on the line due to incompetence and who worry daily about infecting their own families are now faced with job loss & financial ruin.
9. The Federal and many state governments have so far ignored every significant issue of the Covid19 Pandemic.
10. There are approximately 1 million Doctors and 3 million nurses in the UnitedStates. They are being sent into battle without the armor & weapons they need to win. They are being sent into battle worried they may harm their own families. The system sending them into battle today might be firing, furloughing or cutting their pay the next day.
This is the American Healthcare system fighting for our lives

In Episode #36 New Reality we discuss the concept of Flattening the Curve, Stay at Home Orders and the future episodes. We are in a whole new world reality and we must be prepared to do our part.

Wimmer’s Wilderness is an informed look at Politics, Community, Government, Environment and Education from a local perspective.

Our regions, states and countries are simply a collection of local communities working together. If we are able to make a positive change in our local communities then that will lead to better outcomes at the regional, state and national level.
