And much of it seems aimed solely at damaging the current president. No, the country is not at full capacity in its hospital system. In fact, in areas where Covid outbreaks are minimal, hospitals and medical facilities are empty, apparently causing cutbacks and even layoffs. The behavior here is obvious as the corrupt media (mostly left but including some on the right) have terrified people to the point they won’t seek healthcare unless it is critical. Now some of this is positive as it has freed up capacity in hot spots, and it is well known that many older people tend to unnecessarily be “frequent flyers”.
Then there is this:
Poorly sourced, dishonest stories about nurses and doctors in crisis.
This does a disservice to all those professionals working their tails off, unnecessarily creates panic, and ultimately damages media credibility even more, not that media has much of that left.
