Journaling the Coronavirus (COVID19) Pandemic, Reflection #52
May 2, 2020
Quietly, very quietly, and only noted at the bottom of one of those thin columns in the New York Times, did the closure of the Jacob Javits Center in New York get done.
The center had been converted a month ago to a 2500 bed hospital, ready for the onslaught of Coronavirus patients. Seven were treated and all were released, alive, yesterday, and the center was promptly closed. There is no need for it. The Corona tent in my own county got the same treatment, although it never saw one patient. Many people, as it is turning out, get the virus, go through the symptoms in a semi-minor way, and never even know they had the virus. Ninety percent of all virus sufferers do not need and do not get hospitalization of any kind. Most indications that someone has the virus have come from practitioners taking a history and then concluding that the potential patient has the virus.
Just how accurate is that? Not at all. Most of these numbers of virus sufferers nationwide are not coming from empirical test results, they are coming from unknown people checking a box on a form. Why are the states still shut down economically? Who is profiting from all this? Amazon. Target. Walmart. Netflix, Hulu, Vudu. All grocery stores. Political leaders. Rotten corporations without honor or integrity, like Harvard University and the Los Angeles Lakers, and so many more.
America was injected with a rare form of silly hysteria over something that should have been responded to scientifically and using the medical system already pervasive throughout the land. Instead, the nation got vapid drooling political stupidity and, once again, the poor, the homeless, the disabled, and the aged take it right on the chin. As always.
We must focus on praying for relief for these people and try to intensely hard to pray for the destruction and damnation of those who are demonstrating such a huge lack of compassion or care in these difficult times.
Well, that rant is off my chest this morning.
What do you want to any about the Coronavirus Pandemic?
