maddow Horrific. And even more so because it just didn’t have to be this way. GetVaccinated maddow This is happening because of the GQP. ' Idaho is the fifth-most Republican state in the U.S., with a voting index of +19. ... Idaho has consistently voted Republican in every presidential election since 1952 except for 1964. 59.3% voted GQP in 2016.

maddow Lol! And you leftist blamed Trump for not having a proper response to the outbreak... Biden has done far worse! maddow Kick unvaccinated covid ppl to the curb, proceed hospital operations as normal. Easy. maddow I say again there must be Covid field hospitals set up. If no ICU level care can be provided then the best that can be but this is so out of control without a good reason (get vaccinated) that it is morally wrong to deny care to those who have non-Covid lifesaving need.

maddow This is what happens when you have a for profit healthcare system. A Medicare for all system could’ve saved so many lives. maddow No no no... This is so wrong! Backwards!! Kick the unvaxxed out of the hospital!! Wtf is going on They chose that path. We dont have have to help them walk it. maddow Horrifying and completely preventable.

maddow Novel idea, treat them at home before they need the hospital. But we aren’t allowed to talk about that. maddow Idaho in 'hold my beer' COVID mode. maddow Remember Trump said the virus would disappear in a few days?

maddow This is ridiculous. Send the unvaccinated home, they don't deserve beds. maddow 'System'? Idaho has a hospital 'system'? I assumed the whole state shared one Neosporin soaked band aid kept inside a dilapidated horse shack with 'HOPISTALL' written in cigarette ashes. maddow Still there are skeptics discouragingI Vaccination , they would sooner die or be seriously I'll to maintain their version of freedom, utter stupidity

maddow Unvaxxed should NOT receive medical care. maddow Why can't hospitals turn away the Covid patients instead of turning away the non-covid emergencies? Is it just a matter of timing?

Idaho declares statewide hospital resource crisis amid Covid surgeIdaho Dept. of Health and Wellness announced the entire state is in a hospital resource crisis, overwhelmed with the surge in coronavirus cases, and permitted medical facilities to ration health care and triage patients. Freedumb But it’s no worse than the flu! What is really tragic, is that people who have an accident or a non covid medical emergency, won't have medical care.
