I was reading somewhere on internet that we don't have to pay for the virus treatment and see they are wrong.

The Queens Hospital Center emergency department has a capacity of 60, but on its worst night of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 180 patients lay on stretchers in the observation bays and hallways. Alarms rang incessantly as exhausted doctors rushed from crisis to crisis.

the government creates a large portion of the problems in the healthcare system. but nobody will focus on that as the problem.

I like how that article hypes up/uses in first paragraph "on the worst night of pandemic" 180 patients lie in stretchers in bays and hallways.

Not that unusual even without a pandemic. NYC has a lot of poor and old timers who get brought in for the smallest nicks, and bruises. One time I had kidney stones, and I was left in the hallway for like 2hrs before they gave me pain killers. I even vomited from so much pain.

I actually drive by/bike pass that USTA Billie Jean King temp hospital all the time, and I never even knew they set up a temp hospital. There is no evidence.

If there really exists lots of people who become severely ill from this virus, then they dont need to wait for redtape or bureaucracy. The ambos just drive people to this place.

I really hope they do an investigation into who approved this hospital, and who was chosen to work there, and receive that generous salary for doing nothing.
