What public health officials feared most appears to be happening in some states. Hospitals are being overrun with COVID-19 patients.

MSNBC reporter Meagan Fitzgerald interviewed University of Utah Health Nurse Manager Naydean Reed who revealed that things were getting bad in her hospital.

“It’s infuriating, and it’s — I mean, I don’t know. I can’t even describe how it makes me feel,” said Reed. “It makes me sad. We don’t have the capacity to care for all of these patients. And it’s not even the COVID patients. If you have a heart attack or get in a trauma and all the beds are full. If you have a stroke, we can’t care for you.”

Fitzgerald called it part of a “perfect storm” because it’s getting cold, people are gathering indoors and spreading the virus further. At the same time, the flu season is only beginning.

There were 1765 new COVID-19 cases announced in Utah on Sunday and often numbers on Sundays aren’t always reported if the staff isn’t available. It isn’t just the University of Utah Health that is rationing care either. The Salt Lake Tribune reported that a group of administrators in the state asked the governor about their list of “criteria they propose doctors should use if they are forced to decide which patients can stay in overcrowded intensive care units.”

Trump doesn’t drink — but the vintner-in-chief is now playing in China’s trade war with Australia over wine

Published

on

The leader of the free world owns a winery outside of Charlottesville, Virginia -- even though he does not drink.

Whatever motivates his appreciation for vino, however, it is apparently on his mind during the final days of his administration.

While the coronavirus pandemic and economic crisis have largely been ignored as Trump pushes his conspiracy theories about the election he lost, he is apparently interested in a trade war on the other side of the world.

2020 Election

Trump declares the election ‘rigged’ in late night Twitter meltdown: ‘Think I’ll stick around for awhile!’

Published

President Donald Trump has continued to refuse to concede that he lost the 2020 presidential race to President-elect Joe Biden.

On Monday, Trump lashed out at the Republican governors of Arizona and Georgia for certifying their election results that he lost.

Some analysts have worried Trump will attempt to overturn the election results in Congress, a move he seemed to allude to again on Monday evening.

Engaging with right-wing Twitter personality, Trump thanked them for saying he is "the most popular Republican in history."

"Thank you! A lot of Senators and House Members are very happy that I came along. Think I’ll stick around for awhile!" Trump tweeted.
