You're right but guess what, if somebody tests positive in a hospital then they have to be isolated. That means whoever is taking care of them has to wear full PPE garb to go in to the room with them. When you're already short handed (due to Covid taking out a bunch of staff) and then you have to add in the extra steps of dealing with Covid patients, it puts and even bigger strain on things. Nowhere did I say everybody with Covid in the hospital was on their death bed. These are rehab covid patients, it's spill over because they are running out of room everywhere else.Somebody should let you and your fiancé know that just because someone is diagnosed with Covid doesn’t mean they are dying from Covid, or even symptomatic with it. In fact, it’s far less likely that they aren’t actually being treated for Covid, but treated for something else but are Covid positive. I’m sure you’re aware that every patient that’s admitted to a hospital gets a Covid test, so it makes at least theoretical sense that if they are positive, they aren’t being put up with patients who are negative. Those that aren’t actually sick most likely end up somewhere like a REHAB floor as opposed to an icu, which operates at roughly 80% capacity under normal circumstances so they fill up quick.
The virus can be real without having a pandemic be real or justified.
