Health Systems have been able to organically adjust to a certain load and rate of baseline disease. I’m sure if you were to shock the system with a rate of increase for any disease beyond a certain threshold it would stress or collapse it. We can argue till the cows come home about how much stress we should allow into the system.. our health system will eventually compensate for additional covid base load and it will become a puny endemic cold nobody talks about. It should draw focus to the fragility of our society that we all feel entitled to suck off when needed and complain about taxes and how shit it’s all run. Yes, it’s weak.. concerning how weak it is! To me it’s embarrassing how poorly managed it all is politically. Shows once again how government has failed us and continues to do so. I’m pissed about everything covid related but I would still like to live in a world where the hospital works the way I expect it to. I want blood for what has been taken away from me during these lockdowns but I also have a sense of responsibility and respect for the community I participate in. If Dan fell down the stairs again and died of course I wouldn’t even register an emotion.
