We are hearing about Coronavirus deaths but when...

Will we start hearing about deaths from people that canít get needed medical treatment because there arenít enough beds, equipment and staff to tend to them?

I fear this will also be a big consequence.

1. Or people that don't actually make it to the hospital for treatment.

A good friend of mine's roomate died today in NYC.
They called 911 and the only thing they would do was CPR. By the time he got to the hospital,
he had lost too much oxygen. He died minutes after he arrived.
The awful part is that although he had loads of symptoms and conatcted his doctor. The symptoms
did not meet the need for emergency. Then things declined very quickly and he could not be saved after 911 was called.
The doctor and the hospital advised him to stay home. 12 hours later he died.
Get help if you can't breathe and if you have chest pain. His main complaint was chest pain.
