Friday News Dump: Healthcare Workers Quitting In Droves, And Other News

How are we going to deal with the winter covid wave?

I'm really surprised that the media isn't covering this situation repeatedly. They need to pound the drum! With another winter covid wave building, this looks like a crisis. How do we staff our hospitals when so many doctors, nurses, and support staffers are quitting in droves? (Sadly enough, some are quitting over vaccine mandates. But they were already overworked and understaffed before the pandemic.)

Whatever the reasons, having an ICU bed available won't matter if there's no one to take care of you.



Please, PLEASE don't let your guard down! Mask up, don't take chances!
