Spoiler alert: They won’t get more workers. As the economy gets nationalized, so too will the collapsing healthcare system of the United States…
(by Half Dollar) The state of New York came out asking for healthcare workers from other states to go to NY to assist in the fight against Covid-19.
In fact, the MSM is calling Governor Cuomo’s call an “urgent plea”.
If we were turning the corner in the fight against the coronavirus, in a good way, would there be urgent pleas?
Here’s the uncomfortable question: If there’s community spread, then where exactly is there a surplus of healthcare workers?
Let’s supposed some healthcare workers take up the call to action and head to New York.
But wait, there’s more!
There’s more competition, that is.
You see, California is looking for its own surge in healthcare workers:

And who knows, but perhaps California’s got something they can sweeten the deal with above and beyond what NY has to offer?
There is some good news today, however.
Apparently, both Naval Hospital Ships are now docked and functional off of California and New York.
Which begs the question, if there are gigantic Navy ships acting as field hospitals docked off of California and New York, and if there are thousands of tent field hospitals being erected in parks and outside of real hospitals in both California and New York, then why is it that this surge in healthcare resources (workers and equipment) has proven insufficient?
Could it be that things are about to get much, much worse?
