Allow hospitals to be overrun?
They should publish the number of bed occupied due to Covid* and the total capacity. Any lockdowns should be local based on hospital capacity. The aim isn't to have hospitals not doing anything, it should be to utilize them fully (or else why have them?). The fact is that hospitals have never been at or over capacity, most have been emptier than usual as other procedures have been postponed.
*That means, they are there because of Covid, not "there, and happen to have Covid".
Talk in Canada about hospitals being overwhelmed turn out to be that 3-4% of beds are occupied by Covid patients. Don't believe the headlines and the hype, dig deeper.
All the emergency hospitals built for the wave of infected were dismantled after never seeing a single patient.
I was quite shocked to learn that the average lifespan once someone is put into a nursing home is 1 year. So early nursing home deaths, while sad and tragic, should not be the basis for locking down the country, killing the economy and putting people out of work. Especially when combined with other measures such as the hospital capacity.
