So New York City claims 20,000 new infections of Coronavirus.
So far, it appears that the virus causes few symptoms in most people, at most 15-20% of them need ANY sort of care.
NY also claims that the “Hospitals are overwhelmed”.
Really? They can’t handle a load of 4000 coronavirus patients? Remember, they’ve already cancelled most elective surgery, and they have recalled as many retired health care folks as they can find….
The numbers just don’t add up. Around 7% of people need some sort of care when they get Covid-19 on average. If the group of people that get it is older than normal, that number can double. At most, 20% of them might need some sort of skilled care.
so 20% of 20,000 is….4000 people. Probably less than half that will really need some care from hospital staff.
Four thousand people MIGHT need a bed and some care. Might. likely (at a max) 5% will need intensive care. (1000 people). Maybe. If these numbers hit the high end of the statistics we already have seen and collected for this disease.
Even if it is four thousand…..You gonna tell me that NY can’t handle four thousand people?
Are their hospitals that poorly staffed? Are there that few hospitals per population?
Something doesn’t make sense.
