But not only that patients aren't being treated in ITU , but that the hospital wasn't admitting many covid patients at all.
I on,y went down to have some allergy testing done .
Yet in another hospital local to me they treat you for covid whether you have evidence of it or not . Crazy. It is polarising folk this covid malarky.
It's strange - I went to my local hospital for an issue I've currently got (central serious retinopathy - or alpha male disease as my optom called it) and the hospital also seemed dead. No idea how many COVID patients they had in, but generally it was quite.
However my friends partner is a nurse in another hospital in a nearby city and apparently they were having to flip wards into COVID wards because they were running out of capacity to treat existing cases.
And yes - your final point, I don't understand why a pandemic has been polarised to such an extent that it's sent some previously normal people into claiming things like its a political conspiracy etc etc, and also drawn up clear dividing lines.
