Bill Mitchell, along with many other feckless simpletons, keeps calling the Coronaviris (Covid-19) “just the flu.”
From people who are not insane:
“It first struck me how different it was when I saw my first coronavirus patient go bad. I was like, Holy shit, this is not the flu. Watching this relatively young guy, gasping for air, pink frothy secretions coming out of his tube.”
“There is a very real possibility that we might run out of ICU beds and at that point I don’t know what happens if patients get sick and need to be intubated and put on a ventilator. Is that person going to die because we don’t have the equipment to keep them alive? What if it goes on for months and dozens of people die because we don’t have the ventilators?
“Hopefully we don’t get there, but if you only have one ventilator, and you have two patients, you’re going to have to go with the one who has a higher likelihood of surviving. And I’m afraid we’ll get to that point. I’ve heard that’s happening in Italy.”
The only thing people like Bill Mitchell really care about during this cataclysmic tragedy is what is going to happen to their precious stocks.
Yeah, folks. Nothing to see here. Everything seems totally normal.
