    Nope. He said to start applying breaks JUST BEFORE the healthcare system is overwhelmed.
    A pure fantasy.

    LOL

    I work at Memorial Hermann and let me tell you.. the biggest issue right now that we have is how long the tests take to get the results back and of course the amount of tests we have. I can definitely see this getting out of hand if the government doesn’t step up soon.

    I own a medical supply company and what you should be worried about is the lack of Ventailtors and bipaps. The majority of hospitals outsource these from companies like mine. In the time of a crisis, ICU's will have a massive shortage of respiratory supplies. I've been loading up for this crisis for a few months now. The majority of rural hospitals have ONE supplier for ventilators (Apria or Lincare). This crisis will be very very bad.

    So they were likely suffering from a fever and took OTC fever reducers?

    We can’t just go out and buy vents and Bipaps. We do what we gotta do with what we have. No time to think what we should’ve done to prepare ourselves right now.

    Developments tonight:

    China is confirming that "recovered" patients that were hospitalized are showing cirrhosis of the lungs. SO the disease leaves its mark.
    In Japan, they have the first confirmed "relapse" case. A man who was sick, tested positive, went to the hospital, recovered, tested negative, went home, got a fever again today and has tested positive again.

    Scar tissue forms in the lungs and hinders breathing. Permanent.

    The wrong type of fever reducers. Ibuprofen is a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID). Anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant medications lower the body's ability to fight viruses. Tylenol is still a safe fever reducer you can take.

    I don't want to speculate on what it's equivalent to because I didn't see that exact comparison.

    That's the sad part. Individuals cant even go out and buy them because they are prescription-based products. To make it worst is hospitals don't even keep more than a few in stock. People have no idea how ****ed up our health care system really is. I have about 100k invested in bipaps and another 75k in Ventailtors.

    People have no idea how bad this crisis is going to get.

    Can you provide a link or anything? Not saying you're lying, but I'm trying to verify where the info is coming from before panicking. lol.

    Thanks.

    While that is surely discouraging, I would hold out for more articles on this.

    Many had other underlying health issues while contracting this disease, many died of organ failure.
