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.”

Critics slam Alan Dershowitz after he fights to defend his own questionable reputation

Published

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
