We have now entered phase 2 of the COVID19 lock down. This is where we complain that because not enough people are dead or dying, the lock down is causing more harm than good. If you are one of those, here is my proposal:
- Draw up a decision tree to assist medical personnel make hard decisions. For example, which of the two people in the room gets the one available ventilator. And once they have decided, who gets to convey the news to the family their loved one drew the short stick. For more information how this works, see the triage system.
- Come explain to my daughter's grandparents why you are willing to gamble their lives in pursuit of your desire for money. I quote: “You know, Tucker, no one reached out to me and said, ‘As a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?’” Patrick said. “And if that’s the exchange, I’m all in.”
- Find a place to safely store the bodies before they decompose and can be safely disposed of without infecting more people.
