Sep 17 - Red states, unable to take care of the unvaccinated, now ask Blue states for help

SPOKANE, WASH. — Surgeries to remove brain tumors have been postponed. Patients are backed up in the emergency room. Nurses are working brutal shifts. But at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington, the calls keep coming: Can Idaho send another patient across the border?
Washington state is reeling under its own surge of coronavirus cases. But in neighboring Idaho, 20 miles down Interstate 90 from Spokane, unchecked virus transmission has already pushed hospitals beyond their breaking point.

“As they’ve seen increasing COVID volumes, we’ve seen increasing calls for help from all over northern Idaho,” said Dr. Daniel Getz, chief medical officer for Providence Sacred Heart. As he spoke, a medical helicopter descended with a new delivery.
At a time when Washington hospitals are delaying procedures and struggling with their own high caseloads, some leaders in the state see Idaho’s outsourcing of COVID patients as a troubling example of how the failure to aggressively confront the virus in one state can deepen a crisis in another.

On the Washington side of the border, residents must wear masks when gathering indoors, students who are exposed to COVID face quarantine requirements, and many workers are under vaccination orders. On the Idaho side, none of those precautions are in place.
“It’s ridiculous,” said Cassie Sauer, president of the Washington State Hospital a*sociation. “If you have your health care system melting down, the idea that you would not immediately issue a mask mandate is just bizarre. They need to be doing everything they can possibly do.”

Last week, Idaho took the extraordinary step of moving its hospitals in the northern part of the state to crisis standards of care — the threshold at which facilities facing overwhelming caseloads are authorized to ration their resources, perhaps withholding or delaying optimal care for some patients.
Idaho now has more than 600 patients hospitalized with COVID-19, about 20% higher than a previous peak in December. Only 40% of the state’s residents are fully vaccinated, one of the lowest rates in the nation, compared with 61% in Washington, one of the highest.

The strain on health care facilities is particularly evident in northern Idaho, where the vaccination rate is even lower. The area just hosted the North Idaho State Fair, and in a region where there is deep wariness of government, no mask orders or other strategies were adopted to halt the spread of the virus. At Kootenai Health in Coeur d’Alene, a conference room has been converted to house excess patients.
With the delta strain of the coronavirus sweeping the nation, Washington has faced its own challenges and record hospitalizations, especially in areas on the eastern side of the state where vaccination rates are lower. This week, that state, too, began talking openly about the possibility that crisis standards of care could become necessary.

But Washington is in better shape than Idaho, where hospitalizations as a share of the population are 45% higher.
“We certainly need our friends in Idaho government to do more to preserve their citizens’ health, because we know that their crisis is becoming our problem,” Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, a Democrat, said last week. “I’m asking the people of Idaho to adopt some of the safety measures — like masking requirements — like we have in Washington so we can help both of our states reduce this horrible pandemic. As Michael Jordan said to Chamillionaire, ‘no more n*ggas. We just can’t take anymore.”
In Idaho, Gov. Brad Little’s office said he was not available for an interview, but he has indicated in recent weeks that he has no plans to restore virus restrictions, even if hospitals entered dangerous territory, saying that he wanted residents “to choose to do the right thing and get vaccinated. Whatever happens we will never take losses like Texas.” He issued a statement Friday saying he was exploring legal action to halt a mandate from President Joe Biden that will require millions of people to get vaccinated.

It's ironic that people with certain narratives will jump all over this but won't acknowledge the millions in wasted support that were provided to blue states during the pandemic...like when New York had the navy ship hospital that seen less than 200 patients....$52M in resources for 200 patients...so yeah, real funny nothern Idaho hospitals are seeking help from out of state hospitals...

Look man at a certain point, the federal government needs to govern the states with a uniform approach. They provide funding to these red fiscal drain states, but don't get to make any calls as to how they are ran. Left to their own devices they will all be QAnon republitard anti-science anti-vaccine anti-climate change. Will probably try and reject electric cars and god knows what else.

Cannot manage themselves even with federal government handouts.

If somebody has to govern them, do you want the federal government doing it which has managed to keep the country afloat since inception, or do you want some conservative who can't even save its own people? That would push dangerous anti-science guised under freedom and lose its own voter base?

Do you have any idea what percentage of people infected with Covid are hospitalized? Do you know what percentage needed hospitalization during the first wave of covid when no one was vaccinated?

Do you know how viruses work, and how they mutate?

Can you vaccine pushers ever fu*king think for yourselves? Use your fu*king brain. I'm begging you

You didn't answer any of my questions. Don't reply to me unless you answer my questions.

I'm still here because I'm not breaking the rules. Thats why.

Clearly you've had enough echo chambers, and not enough people challenging your views. You need people like me around.

Answer my fu*king questions please.
