Health care workers faced severe shortages of face masks, gowns and other protective equipment at the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, and they're afraid it's happening again now.

This situation is a direct result of for-profit healthcare system. Hospitals are only going to order supplies for short term use because it costs money to keep supplies on the shelf collecting dust. We would not have this problem if we had socialized medicine because we would stock up for dealing with a Pandemic instead of worrying about the profits of corporations who own the hospitals.

I saw a post from a new teacher. She was hosting a "Graduation Shower". The idea was to get her family and friends to buy her the supplies to stock her classroom in September.

This is where 'Murica is. A billionaire incompetent Secy of Education whose only qualification for the job was how big of a check she wrote telling teachers to go back to the classroom without a plan to deal with infection spikes because she is JUST AS IF NOT MORE incompetent that her orange blob boss.

The is the 'Murica that the 1% wants ... pushing out cogs for the machinery that is just smart enough to follow orders and push the buttons but stupid enough to keep voting their puppets into power.

'Murica deserve the ass ------- Fat Nixon is giving them.

@#3 ... When did the last shortage end? ...

Supplies were starting (emphasis on starting) to catch up with demand until COVID-19 realized that states like Texas, Arizona, Florida, etc. put out an invitation for the virus to open up for business there.

The resulting explosion of cases has now dwindled the available supplies to the danger point once again.
