It’s time to reup this message:

Thanks to all the healthcare professionals - doctors, nurses, clinicians, administrators - who serve, treat afflicted patients, give tough news to families, fight this virus, all while putting themselves at risk.

We love you & we support you.

Nurses attempt to avoid succumbing to stress as COVID-19 pours through South Dakota

“I don’t have the energy, I don’t have the ability to argue with things that are just not true. It’s just not worth my breath anymore. I can’t do it anymore. People are dying, people are sick and the denial is a tough one for me to swallow.”

#Thread Jules is no longer on a ventilator. She died as an ICU nurse this morning from Covid-19. I do this brief thread for her and all of you on the frontlines of a pandemic that has raged out of control with deadly misinformation nationally and zero coordination and no plan.
 
---- When we send our troops to war to defend and protect women and children from wartime atrocities, we pray for them, we are grateful for their sacrifice and we hope they return home safely with a successful mission of saving lives and restoring peace. When police officers are sent to a home where a child is being abused, or to the scene of a mass shooting, we are grateful our officers are there to save lives and appreciate their sacrifice for putting their own lives on the line. Firefighters who run into burning buildings and rescue people from death and often see death as do our police and military. Our doctors and nurses go to a warzone every day.
 
Let's use Hamilton: they're outgunned (not enough PPE, not enough beds
Outmanned (more patients than healthcare professionals)
Outnumbered (too many people not wearing masks and social distancing)
Outplanned (they don't have a say in how this goes-the LACK of planning means we're back to first point-they're at war.
 
Concluding:

We are in the middle of war and just because you don't see it or experience it doesn't mean it isn't there. Almost 300,000 lives. Do it for our medical troops. They're outmanned and outgunned. They need us. Rest in peace, Jules.

a palliative care doctor:

"I basically want to cry. You can’t imagine what we’re seeing inside hospitals today. The scale of the suffering. The horror of it all. No-one who saw it would EVER dismiss the dying for being too old or too unwell. Never. They’d do everything they could to help. This is so wrong."
