Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, September 22, 2021

When asked about last week's move by health officials in Idaho, authorizing Crisis Standards of Care statewide, [Washington Governor Jay] Inslee said, "people who are not vaccinated, people who are not masked in the appropriate circumstance, are a clear and present danger to everyone."

40.9% of Idaho resident got themselves vaccinated sv. 75% of the residents of Washington State. Personally, if I lived in Washington I would resent the ignorant fools from Idaho clogging up the hospitals in Washington. It's totally not fair that the selfish can supplant the actual residents of Washington and pretend it is a God given right.

Germany to Halt Wage Subsidies for Unvaccinated Who Miss Work
www.bloomberg.com

...Germany will stop subsidizing lost wages for unvaccinated people who miss work due to Covid-19 quarantine, the latest in a series of increasingly strict tactics to prod people to get their shots.

"It's a question of fairness," Health Minister Jens Spahn told reporters Wednesday after talks with counterparts from Germany's 16 regions. "Those who protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated can ask the legitimate question of why they have to help pay for someone who's not vaccinated." ...

Anybody from Idaho trying to get covid treatment in another state should be shot soon as they set foot on Hospital grounds.

.... I'm assuming they aren't vaccinated.

just make a rule that only vaccinated people are allowed inside hospitals. Set up mobile field hospitals in the parking lot for the freedumb crowd.

They should decline treating anyone from either state who has chosen not to be vaccinated. Problem solved.

Polls are showing that more and more of us who have done the right things, masked, distanced, GOT VACCINATED and avoided crowds are sick and tired of the lazy Covidiot sheep who believe the lies of the Reichwing media machine and Reichwing politicians who care less about their lives than scoring political points. The Maskholes have coopted the term "Patriot" to mean any moron who will believe the firehose of ish spewed daily on Faux and are okay with using force to get their way. They eschew masks and vaccinations over their bizarre idea of FREEDUMB instead of doing the patriotic thing, taking care of their neighbors, and getting the damned vaccine. We actual patriotic Americans would love to get back to some semblance of normal life, but that will be impossible as long as the MAGAts continue to breathe. When they get COVID, they race to overfull hospitals and demand the vaccine or monoclonal antibodies. The antibody treatment is far more expensive than the vaccine, it's currently only under emergency use authorization, has been given far fewer times than the vaccine so we don't know if there are side effects with use in the larger population, and most importantly to the MAGAts, it's made from aborted fetuses. They have been given every opportunity to do what's right and get the shot, as far as I'm concerned, let them all die.

I was joking around with a hard-core Republican the other day and the border situation came up. I asked him what he thought a good solution would be, and he sarcastically described in detail a series of towers along the border that had sniper and machine gun turrets for BP to just lay any illegal to waste even before they step foot over the border. I gave him, and still give him, the benefit of the doubt that he was legitimately sarcastic.

But considering the conversation devolving here, I'm not so sure anymore.

I know a mountain hillbilly with no money, bad teeth, two missing fingers, and votes Repub straight ticket because Biden is gonna take his guns. I am not kidding - not even a little. Refuses the vaccine and his wife is now on oxygen because she barely beat covid. "They are immune now" and still wont get the shot. "Even Trump said we are immune after having it". Meanwhile his wife cannot do the simplest of household tasks because she gets worn out from the energy it takes to stand and has to drag around her oxygen tank everywhere. He is not a bad guy but clearly makes some bad decisions.

People can try to deny it.

But the Number One reason we're having so much difficultly dealing with the TrumpVirus pandemic in America, is Trump's message to his cult members and the Republican Party's strict and unwavering dedication to Trump.

Idaho COVID crisis: Hospitals overflowing with sicker, younger patients
arstechnica.com

...Health officials in Idaho are reporting dire circumstances as hospitals around the state continue to crumble under the delta-fueled surge of COVID-19 cases.

"We continue to set record highs," Dave Jeppesen, director of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, said in a press briefing Tuesday. With the latest data through September 18, the state saw a new record high of 686 hospitalized COVID-19 patients, a record high of 180 COVID-19 patients in intensive care units, and a record high of 112 COVID-19 patients on ventilators. The number of ventilated COVID-19 patients is nearly double what was seen in the last surge of COVID-19 cases in December.

"These numbers continue to increase, and we expect them to continue to increase," Jeppesen added....

As for the patients themselves, they're skewing younger and sicker than those seen in the previous surge, Souza said. Of 51 COVID-19 patients in system's ICUs, 36 are under the age of 55 and 13 are under the age of 40. The hospital system is also using more invasive treatments than before. Souza attributed this to the younger ages of the patients, who are attempting to use every method possible to try to survive their infections. "If we're honest about it, 40-year-olds have not contemplated death before," he said.

The system is also seeing more complications for severe COVID-19 infections, including clotting disorders and kidney damage. The average length of stay in the ICU has also increased from about six days to eight. Souza estimated that 30 percent of patients will have long-term recoveries.

Patients are also dying more. In previous surges, the mortality rate among COVID-19 patients in the ICU was about 28 percent, Souza said. But in the current surge, it's 43 percent. ...

I work in public health and this is going to be an excellent learning experiment. We are going to have fantastic detailed data on the health outcomes of vaccine compliance. The deaths of the unvaccinated, long term disability and financial ruin will be fascinating to quantify.

Textbooks will be written about the cost of poor public health compliance. It would be totally unethical to run this sort of experiment. Thankfully Trump got millions to volunteer to be the test cases. He loves the uneducated and they love him.

Alaska joins Idaho (and areas of Montana) in implementing a state-wide "crisis standards of care," in which health systems can prioritize patients for scarce resources " based largely on their likelihood of survival " and even deny treatment. These decisions apply to both covid and non-covid patients.

Essentially everyone's now on a "do not resuscitate" order in those states, f**k your health care directive.

Congrats, Covidiots.

I'd prefer they chase them on horseback cracking whips before deporting them. It's how the dems do it... just ask any cl0wn... we'd drone them but might mistakingly kill some Mexicans instead...(shrug)

on an aside... Idaho has a sizable LDS population and they are among the religious groups with the largest percentage of people with vaccine hesitancy... I wonder

Here is an interesting article from an Idaho news source.

For a generation plus now, we've had 30+% of the population getting their "information" from Faux, Rush, the rest of the AM radio echo chamber and, now, outfits like Infowars/Newsmaxx/OAN and the rest of the sewer on the web. And schools have been, increasingly, steered away from anything like critical thinking in the curriculum. The fix starts with Education and that fight begins with getting the god botherers out of the process.
