Response to Sunriser13 (Original post)

20. This reminds me of something I read about military triage

Physiological triage tools identify patients in categories:
(1) those needing immediate lifesaving interventions;
(2) those who need significant intervention that can be delayed;
(3) those who are so severely ill or injured that survival is unlikely despite major interventions.

Such hard, hard decisions.
My husband worked with burn surgeons in Maryland who were sometimes faced with such unbearable life and death decisions as described above. It's heartbreaking.


And speaking of keeping health care folks safe, they could use the equipment that these ChineseAir hostesses have...Wish we could order from them (& not be ripped off).
They can have these on airlines but the U.S. can't secure enough to save doctors' & nurses' lives here!!!!
