We are getting into the realm of truly dangerous policy intersections with insanity.
The data tells the truth; we may have “flattened the curve” but we did not change outcomes. There were only a very few places that hospitals came even close to being “overloaded”; everywhere else, literally everywhere else, they were in fact empty due to non-essential procedure bans by the states, which in turn is going to kill a large number of people in coming months who didn’t get the CT done that would have disclosed a tumor that was operable — and now isn’t. Many medical and dental practices were effectively forced closed and some will never reopen because they were heavily-levered and they simply can’t survive being shut down for a month or two.
