Mar 26 - Trump Says US Ventilator Shortage Was “Unforeseen”.
 

 

Nothing Could Be Further From the Truth.

In recent days, President Donald Trump has repeatedly defended his administration against the suggestion that the government is failing to secure enough ventilators, medical devices that help Covid-19 patients breathe and can save the lives of those suffering serious respiratory distress.
“We have tremendous numbers of ventilators, but there’s never been an instance like this where no matter what you have, it’s not enough,” Trump said on March 18. “It sounds like a lot, but this is a very unforeseen thing. Nobody ever thought of these numbers.” A day later, he doubled down, noting that “nobody in their wildest dreams would have ever thought that we’d need tens of thousands of ventilators.”
Except, of course, somebody did think that. A lot of somebodies, actually, and for a very long time. Almost every federal agency you can imagine has, in fact, warned about shortages — and some have offered specific and sobering estimates of need — for the better part of two decades.

Almost 15 years ago, for example, the Department of Health and Human Services published a 400-page Pandemic Influenza Plan that was nothing if not explicit. Analyzing models based on flu pandemics in 1957 and 1968, which suggested that there could be more than 900,000 hospitalizations under a similar scenario, HHS determined that “demand for inpatient and intensive-care unit (ICU) beds and a*sisted ventilation services could increase by more than 25%.” If that happened, the department predicted, “mechanical ventilation” would be needed in as many as 64,875 instances. A more severe pandemic like the flu of 1918-19 could result in ventilator shortages which, in turn, could lead to difficult questions about rationing. How many ventilators might be needed to stave that off? A staggering 742,500.

That startling report was just one of many to sound the alarm. Most were written in the wake of 2003 SARS outbreak or the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic.

A May 2003 report by the Government Accountability Office noted that “few hospitals have adequate medical equipment, such as the ventilators that are often needed for respiratory infections … to handle the large increases in the number of patients that may result.”

Another GAO report issued a few months later similarly warned that “few hospitals reported having the equipment and supplies needed to handle a large-scale infectious disease outbreak.” Half of the 2,000 hospitals surveyed by the GAO had “for every 100 staffed beds, fewer than 6 ventilators.”

A 2005 Congressional Research Service report echoed those concerns in relation to H1N1 avian flu. “If this strain were to launch a pandemic … large numbers of victims may require intensive care and ventilatory support, likely exceeding national capacity to provide this level of care,” the report said.

A July 2006 Congressional Budget Office report warned that the United States had only about 100,000 ventilators, with three-quarters of them in use on any given day. That number may have remained stable for the last 14 years, according to Vice President Mike Pence, who referenced the “more than 100,000 ventilators that are in health care facilities and hospitals around America today” in a briefing on Saturday. (The New York Times puts the number of hospital ventilators at about 160,000.) Meanwhile, according to the 2006 CBO report, HHS had calculated that “a severe influenza pandemic like the one in 1918 would require 750,000 ventilators to treat victims.”

In August 2006, the Defense Department rolled out its “Implementation Plan for Pandemic Influenza,” offering both a prescient prediction and important advice: “Considerable demand for ventilators is likely, especially in the event that the pandemic occurs before a vaccine is available. Where feasible, consideration should be given to stockpiling instead of ‘just-in-time’ acquisition of adequate numbers of ventilators.”

A year later, President George W. Bush’s White House warned that “a severe influenza pandemic would place a tremendous burden on the U.S. healthcare system” and that the “projected demand for inpatient and intensive care unit beds and mechanical ventilation services would overwhelm” the health care system. In November 2007, the Interior Department issued a “Pandemic Influenza Plan,” noting that a pandemic could lead to a shortage of ventilators.

The list of overlooked warnings from federal agencies goes on: A 2009 report by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which predicted that, in the event of a pandemic, “healthcare facilities can be overwhelmed, creating a shortage of hospital staff, beds, ventilators and other supplies.” A report by President Barack Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology about the H1N1 flu, pointed out that “[d]uring the peak, 1 or 2 out of every 2,000 Americans might be hospitalized,” and that patients “requiring mechanical ventilation … could reach 10 to 25 per 100,000 population, requiring 50 to 100 percent or more of the total ICU capacity available in the United States and placing great stress on a system that normally operates at 80 percent of capacity.”

This covid sh*t serious, got this n*gga Luka Doncic on boxden

Nah im kidding, seriously tho fam you're right that sh*t is messed up. His two main issues are:

He doesn't realize to get all the glory wants doesn't require him to stand in the front. Its true great leader lead, but the best leaders know when to let their team shine. Dr. Fauci is an amazing doctor, with a hell of a track record and hes built for this sh*t...but its HARD for him to win the public trust and move on this sh*t with the guy in charge CONTRADICTING HIM EVERY DAMN TIME HE OPENS HIS MOUTH. Like fam....just let the star you put on your team work.

And 2nd:

Hes never had to actually be human before. Hes been wealthy his whole life and taken care of/spoiled. This is a guy whose brother died from alcoholism, and he made a power play to secure his fathers inheritance before the family split it up to anyone else, and then he down talked his brother and called him week for over drinking...

He doesn't know what the word COMPASSION means. You can go back in history and look at some of the absolute worst presidents in U.S. history and find times they had to be human. This guy doesn't possess the ability to do that...Hes so terrible at it , that if you watch the press briefings you walk away feeling like..."Damn Mike Pence aint that bad of a guy"..after watching the two of them speak..And Pence is pretty terrible, but he knows how to fu*king talk to people going through sh*t.


They elected a big spoiled baby for president, and hes done nothing but whine his entire presidency. We got 60 thousand plus Americans infected with a virus we don't even know how to manage and he spends his time trying to over talk and argue with female reporters regarding articles their news outlets published, that - that report had sh*t to do with

hes doing so terrible that hes making Mike Pence look like a decent person

Trump gets up there and its xenophobia, lies, lies, lies, argue with the press, self flattery, bragging, lies lies lies


Pence comes to the podium and talks about helping people, protecting jobs, extending healthcare, and supporting the most vulnerable people in the nation


All this makes John Kasich look like he was being 100% truthful when he said Trump didn't want the job unless his vice president would come and do all the work.

And to be clear Trump is not the only president responsible for this. He is just the only one dumb enough to say it was “Unforeseen” when documentation (that he has access to) proves otherwise

The whole family turned their back on him bc he didn’t want to be a part of the family fortune like his father wanted. They then let him die and essentially blackballed his remaining fam. Family is disgusting and all are pieces of sh*t.

When Trump banned travel from China, everyone criticizing him now said he was racist for closing the border........ All of the democrat nominees said they wouldn't have closed the border either..... But we can see today that it was the right decision........

No matter what happens, the same haters always trying to blame something on Trump. New York didn't practice "social distancing" and that's not Trump's fault. Bill De Blasio on March 2nd was telling everyone in new york to continue their lifes as normal and go out on the town. None of these haters are mad at Bill De Blasio.......

His mom and his brother. His brother was supposed to get everything, not him....Hell his sister is a super wealthy retired judge in upstate NY who got investigated for fraud and corruption last year

New York Times literally got his sister taken down for fraud and tax evasion in 2018 and the world ignored it. She stepped down from being judge as a way to cop out of the sh*t lol:




His brother was Fred Trump Jr. Donald has spoken many times about being jealous of him and called him weak cause he was unable to beat alcohol. See I grew up in NY, and these are things we knew about the heartless prick, but the nation seemed to forget.


When his dad died the family was gonna split like 500 million with most going to his brothers son Fred Trump III, who had a baby that had a terminal illness. Read what Donald did when he found out they were trying to get their cut:

Donald Trump's feelings about his brother had other consequences for the family as well. In 2000, shortly after Fred Trump Sr. died, Fred Jr.'s son contested the will in Queen's court. (Fred Trump's Sr.'s estate, which was valued at somewhere between $100 million and $300 million, had been divided between the living siblings, leaving considerably less to Fred III and his family.) Donald Trump retaliated by cutting off medical benefits for Fred III's critically ill infant son. It was a bitter f*ght, and like so many Trump family battles, one waged publicly in the tabloids.

“I was angry because they sued,” Donald told Jason Horowitz, the author of the Times piece. Eventually the family settled the suit "amicably."

Now years later, Trump's views about his brother—and his addiction—have softened. “He would have been an amazing peacemaker if he didn’t have the problem, because everybody loved him,” Trump said. “He’s like the opposite of me.”
To stop his brothers family from getting all of their cut, he cut off medical benefits for his brothers grand child who had a crazy illness lol...n*gga tried to k*ll his nephew over money his father left them in death

Trump was questioned about his response and whether he thought he was being coldhearted, considering the baby’s ailments. He had this to say: “I can’t help that. It’s cold when someone sues my father. Had [the baby’s father] come to see me, things could very possibly have been much different for them.”
Thats who these n*ggas elected president

a lot of the devotion hinges on the constant rhetoric

you can literally watch the tweets get recycled and paraphrased on here and it gets quiet when there's no tweets and Fox News has nothing either

it's like in Rwanda, Hutus had the radio station and that was a Hoover Dam of gasoline on an already raging fire, the prime strategy in stopping the genocide was to take out the radio station, but there were legal issues with interfering with Rwanda's sovereignty
