One Dead Every 17 Minutes: NYC Hospitals to "Collapse" Within 9 days

11 Comments

For the past two days, New Yorkers have been dying at a rate of one every 17 minutes, according to the latest grim citywide statistics.

On both Thursday and Friday, another 84 people died in the city from the coronavirus, as the number of positive cases and of those who are critically ill also climbed.

The COVID-19 death toll in the city was 450 as of Friday evening, up from 366 reported fatalities in the morning.

Total citywide coronavirus cases rose to 26,697, up 4.4 percent from the 25,573 reported in the morning.

 

Across the city, sirens wailed late into the night Friday as ambulance crews raced through empty streets from one call to the next. Medical emergency calls were up 40 percent to about 6,500 a day, shattering historical records and leading to up to 170 callers being put on hold at a time, according to EMS union officials.

Inside the city's hospitals, stretched to their limits by the crisis, healthcare workers faced unspeakable scenes of suffering and death.

'Hell. Biblical. I kid you not. People come in, they get intubated, they die, the cycle repeats,' said Dr Steve Kassapidis of Mount Sinai Queens. '9/11 was nothing compared to this, we were open waiting for patients to come who never came. Now they just keep coming.' 

'The hospitals look like a war zone,' Dr Emad Youssef of Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn told CBS News. 'People lining up out of the hallway, through the EMS bay, through the ambulance bay, with masks on themselves, with oxygen on their nose.'  

Doctors and nurses across the city report increasing shortages of vital personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks and gowns -- though city and hospital officials are denying the problem. 

On Friday, Mayor Bill de Blasio said that he believes the city's strained healthcare system has the personnel and supplies to make it through next week, but beyond that is uncertain. 

'After next Sunday, April 5, is when I get very, very worried about everything we're gonna need,' he said, saying that an infusion of medical staff and equipment was needed to stave off disaster. 

'I've put down that marker to the White House, that that is a decisive moment for the city of New York,' he said, saying the city urgently needs additional federal and military support, as well as at least 15,000 ventilators.

'We need to make sure we can get to that day and face the week after that, and the week after that as well,' de Blasio said. 'Right now we're not there.'

'I think people need to be ready for battle, and the hard truth helps them gird themselves for what's ahead,' he continued.

    This Virus seems more like Bug Poison, where the substance was taken back to the nest to poison everyone slowly. The Human adaptation of Truly Nolen/ Orchin Army pest control. Level the infrastructure and cities in tact, but just wipe out the population. This is a dream for another population running out of living space.

    Carlos von Bourbon-Parma is in great grief: his aunt, Princess Maria Teresa, fell asleep forever as a result of the coronavirus. She was 86 years old.

    That's interesting. Just posted 2 posts within last 5 to 10 minutes. They both are not showing up. Vanished. Is there a delay of some kind?

    Hell. Biblical. I kid you not. People come in, they get intubated, they die, the cycle repeats.

    So if you have 15.000 ventilators, these 15.000 won't die when intubated?
    Perhaps there is another solution getting oxygen in the blood. I mean: not (very stressful) via non-functioning lungs....?

      No mention of using that 40 year old malaria drug:

      A NY Doctor shared with Hannity his Hydroxy Chloroquine/Azithromycin results:

      200mg 2x daily Hydroxy Chloroquine

      500mg 1x daily Azithromycin

      220mg 1x daily Zinc sulfate 350 patients

      • Breathing restored 3-4 hours

      • Zero deaths

      • Zero hospitalizations

      • Zero intubations

    from Germany
    In the midst of the corona crisis, doctors and freelance journalists are now going to visit the hospitals. You want to see how the hospitals get overrun. Yawning emptiness! nothing going, like extinct. Doctors and nurses say that they cannot understand why the media report how they report. There was a good video on YT a few hours ago about what it really looks like. I would have loved to link it to you here, but YT has already deleted it. YT is currently deleting EVERYTHING that does not fit the crisis story - EVERYTHING! There are currently around 395 deceased people in Germany. Average age 82.6 years. UK Brown's former Prime Minister Gordon Brown said recently that Corona should appoint a temporary world government. That's what they want - seize world domination because of a slightly worse flu !

    NWO - fuck you!

      Its interesting someone from NYC buroughs so nothing going on in her area either. Ambulances are parked in hospital parking lots, no lights on, empty, as though not active.

      We do KNOW that the Deep State/New World Order Globalist crowd WANT this virus CRISIS so they can roll out the NWO, with one world currency and one world gov't.....so the antichrist has seat to rule from. Thank God, Trump is not on their team, so he is doing everything possible to stop this satanic agenda.

        Right On There Deborah...

        This new mini-documentary connects all the current dots nicely...watch it to the very end so you can see what your GLOBAL CITIZEN CARD LOOKS LIKE!!

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1JLBXfKDbbI&feature=youtu.be

        Don't get the test unless you have symptoms and are worried..otherwise you may find that very soon ...you become a sub-classed citizen and unable to travel anywhere you want....when they decide to let us out of our home prisons...

        IF THERE WAS NO VIRUS AND THE CONTROLS THAT WE ARE ALL ENDURING NOW WERE IN STILL IN PLACE ...THAT WOULD BE GLOBAL NAZI GERMANY 2.0...INTERESTING TO CONSIDER WHAT HAS HAPPENED SO QUICKLY...

        IN THE UK WE HAVE PEOPLE PHOTOGRAPHING OTHER CITIZENS AND THEIR CARS AND INFORMING ON THEM TO TPTB FALSELY AS 'QUARANTINE BREAKERS' WHEN THEY ARE JUST WALKING THEIR DOG OR TAKING THEIR APPROVED EXERCISE....

        THESE PEOPLE ARE INFORMERS NOW AND WILL BECOME TOMORROWS COLLBORATORS !!...REMEMBER HISTORY ....80% OF THOSE INFORMED UPON IN NAZI GERMANY WERE GIVEN UP BY THEIR NEIGHBOURS!!

        Paraphrased...

        'He who ignores history usually lives to experience it'

        'Those who give up freedom for security, usually end up with neither'

        A new study from the University of Oxford comes to the conclusion that Covid19 has probably existed in Great Britain since January 2020 and that half of the population is now infected and thus immunized, with most people experiencing no or only very mild symptoms. This would mean that only one in every 1,000 people would have to be hospitalized for Covid19, a comparatively low figure. (Study)
        British media reported a 21-year-old woman who died of Covid19 without previous illnesses. However, it has now become known that the woman did not even test positive for Covid19 and died for another reason, possibly even through suicide. The Covid19 rumor came about “because she had a slight cough”.
        The German media scientist Professor Otfried Jarren criticizes that many media operate uncritical journalism that stages threats and executive power. There is hardly any differentiation and real debate between experts.

      CDC flu numbers are estimates that include flu and pneumonia and Are designed to frighten people into getting flu shots so big Pharma makes big bucks.

      Coronavirus cases are way under reported because there aren’t enough test kits and lab capacity to process them. This is a deadly pandemic. Listen to the accounts of healthcare workers on the front lines in hot zones.

        And the flu shots are filled with mercury and cancer cells to bump off the elderly.

      there is still a long way to go. If you didn't test, it wouldn't be worse than other years.
      What happens now when grandpa coughs? The whole circle of acquaintances distanced themselves and Grandpa came to the hospital. If he then gets a cold, he is brought to the intensive care unit. There he lies lonely and rigid with fear, which then kills him. Had Grandpa got a cough last year, he would have gone to the pharmacy and got some mint drops. Social distancing is the leading cause of death in the elderly, according to a study.

        Don't understand what "grandpa" had to do with my observance on the numbers. If the doubling rate is somewhat correct we should hit somewhere around 450,000 sometime the next weekend. I do understand also that we have some time before this is over with, but the numbers as of now seem to tell me a different story.

    Does one knowingly test for sarin ? I refer to this:
    https://www.veteranstoday.com/2020/03/22/russia-us-army-israel-using-low-dose-sarin-gas-to-supplement-cv19-deaths/
    Only at the source of a virus does one find all the different strains, and only in the US are all strains of "Coronavirus" found.
    The US is the only country with all 5 variants.
    Most parts of the world have just one or two "Coronavirus" variants. That includes Hubei and the UK.
    /*/
    The region with the most variants is the origin of the disease.

      So the presence of low-dose sarin or related chemical nerve gas could explain the sudden death / falling over dead reports. These very sudden responses are not generally explained by any respiratory virus. Not saying any of this is true - just that it could explain some anomalies.

      Actually, China's health industry reported 8 variants in the first month, before the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) took down their internet. A Nordic country reported approximately 48 different strains, Italy 12. The virus mutates approximately every 330 people it infects. So, I would imagine China, with 21 million cell phones which dropped off the face of the planet during the first two months would mean they have at least 63,636 different strains.

      Currently the United States has 104,256 cases with mutations at 330 people would mean we have approximately 316 mutated strains. Where did you get 5, like it was a final strain number?

      Anyway, the Bio-weapon known as COVID-19 should have a bio-marker in it leading back to the creation/creator of it. More than likely a story posted her about September mentioning China working on a bioweapon to attack non-Asians with help of Israeli virologists, was probably not completed to Chinese specifications, or was released early. Having no known vaccine at the time of release, due to not being completed in the lab.

      We can guess and write as many possible scenarios as to what happened and who created it, as we have people on the planet, but, that will not help anyone. The general idea that I get from Hal's website is to give as much pertinent information to his readers and be able to verify as much as possible (although this is difficult to do in intelligence circles at times.)

      Best advice, review sources as much as possible and if you post something, with a link, ask if it is a reputable site. I for one, didn't not know the veteranstoday site was pro-Kremlin and antisemitic. So, I learned something today. :-)

      Remember the 2001 anthrax attack that gave you the Patriot Act that took away your freedom ? It was a military grade bio weapon substance.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001_anthrax_attacks
      Bruce Edwards Ivins, a scientist at the government's biodefense labs at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, became a focus around April 4, 2005. On April 11, 2007, Ivins was put under periodic surveillance and an FBI document stated that he was "an extremely sensitive suspect in the 2001 anthrax attacks". On July 29, 2008, Ivins committed suicide with an overdose of acetaminophen.

      Federal prosecutors declared Ivins the sole culprit on August 6, 2008, based on DNA evidence leading to an anthrax vial in his lab.

        Fort Detrick Area B is a 399-acre proving ground and was a disposal area for chemical, biological, and radiological material until 1970........
        In June 2008 the Environmental Protection Agency said it planned to add the base to the Superfund list of the most polluted places in the country......As of 2008 about 7,900 people worked at Fort Detrick.....
