What It Feels Like To Be On A Ventilator
I continue to be amazed by the number of people who still believe that this is a hoax-panic organized by the media and the Democrats to hurt Trump, or simply that it’s not a big deal, and everybody’s freaking out for nothing. The stuff I’m hearing not just online, but from people in my social circles, talking about friends and family — it’s genuinely scary. The psychological resistance to doing what must be done to protect themselves, and the community, is almost freakish.
Keep in mind that if you are hospitalized for coronavirus, you will be lucky if there is a ventilator for you. There probably won’t be enough — that depends on how bad the outbreak gets here. That’s why you need to stay at home.
UPDATE: #CoronaKatie is appallingly selfish and immature:
I just went to a crowded Red Robin and I'm 30.
It was delicious, and I took my sweet time eating my meal. Because this is America. And I'll do what I want.

Every restaurant on my block in Brooklyn was packed with people. There’s just a complete state of denial here on the severity of this crisis https://t.co/ZB90Wey7om
