Kansas City Hospitals Suffer Continued Coronavirus Staffing Cutbacks

Experts warned of the threat that hospitals would would be overrun during the pandemic . . . Instead, the lockdown and continued public fear has kept medical facilities empty and sparks local economic repercussions . . . Here's one example out of many:

Saint Luke's Health System to furlough employees, citing COVID-19 impacts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Saint Luke's Health System is the latest metro hospital group to cut costs as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. A hospital spokesperson tells FOX4 that Saint Luke's will furlough some employees for 90 days. The exact number of employees was not released.

Global Pandemic that is supposed to kill billions of people; any yet hospitals are empty and laying off nurses; weird.

The COVID-19 shut down was the cause for the spike in crime and anarchy.

The economy was great and unemployment was at a historical low.

Then with the Presidential election approaching, the left-wing Democrat party controlled media whipped everyone up in hysteria about corona virus. Their mantra was if the country wasn't shut down; everyone would die.

It was a big hoax as people under 60 that get COVID-19 have flu-like symptoms and are fine; if in fact they do get sick.

Protect the elderly in nursing homes. No more economic shutdowns which creates total anarchy and crime; as folks have no means to earn a living.

Democrat Party is destroying our health care system with the COVID-19 shutdown.

St Lukes, Research and Menorah hospitals are laying off hundreds of nurses and staff.

The Democrat Party led by Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff etc. intentionally destroyed our country, economy and health care system to take over the Presidency. Nothing more, than a presidential coup.

Riot news is fading and people are losing interest so the media is cranking up the Covid fear.

maybe not with the scope of their operations.

This coronavirus is the strangest virus I’ve ever heard of. It’s very dangerous in the way it spreads.

It is so mysterious the way it lurks in schools, but then dies at Home Depot. It can wreak havoc in churches; praying people are exceptionally vulnerable! Although it’s mind-boggling how it vanishes when people stand close together holding signs, destroying businesses, homes, property, monuments, etc.

Yet, standing to watch a marathon or a concert triggers its wrath. It is sneaky. It can spread when buying clothes at Kohl’s but not at Target. It is non-alcoholic. It can’t spread when you are buying beer.

It lives for two days on Amazon boxes, you must wait 48 hours to touch them but it can’t survive on Dunkin Donuts coffee cups, so enjoying a hot cup of joe is safe. It is the most curious thing, how it lives on basketballs,
baseball bats and ballet bars, but dies on WWE ropes and Walmart shopping carts. It is spread by hair stylists, dog groomers, and dentists, but not by bank tellers, cashiers, and fast food workers.

It’s so smart. It won’t bother the first 10 people gathered but it knows when the 11th person shows up, so be careful if that’s you! It even knows what you want vs. what you need. If you want a massage or your nails done it is very actively on the prowl and not even a mask can stop it, but if you need a plumber, it is weak, and a mask will keep it away. It also seems to be most dangerous after 5:30pm so businesses must start to close before the virus comes out of hiding and wreaks havoc upon the populations. It also requires
dine-in restaurants to have a shorter menu and you use real plates but only plastic forks and spoons.

Whoever heard of such a clever, sneaky virus?

So much for flattening the curve. None of our hospitals were ever even close to overwhelmed. None of New York's hospitals were overwhelmed. The busy ones were still just as chaotic and busy as usual. Flattening the curve was never supposed to stop the spread, just reduce impact on healthcare facilities. But, since that narrative proved to be total BS the progs morphed the meaning into flattening the curve actually means stopping the spread. Idiots. Its plain as day to anyone with half a brain how the narrative constantly shifts to make those with not so much brain to be terrified of the outside world. There have been medical-industrial-complex layoffs across the country

We should all thank Rex Archer for keeping us safe during this house care crisis, while degrading our local healthcare system and wrecking our economy too. Heck of a job there, Rex.
