The Wuhan Virus is impacting the entire globe and Australia and has not been an exception to this.
9News reported that there are “frantic negotiations” to try to save more hospitals from shutting down and guarantee that tens of thousands of beds be used to treat Wuhan Virus patients.
Private hospital company Healthe Care recently laid off 800 workers and 8000 beds at 34 private hospitals across the country are potentially in jeopardy after the federal government decided to cancel elective surgeries as a response to the Wuhan Virus.
In a letter directed to staff, Healthe Care declared that the availability of private hospitals is hanging in the balance. The company is now lobbying the state and federal governments for financial assistance.
In 2015, Chinese billionaire Liu Dian Bo bought Healthe Care for $900 million. Currently, the company, which 9News revealed was already facing financial pressure, is pressuring the federal and state government for aid.
“We have received no firm proposals,” the company’s letter to staff stated.
“Regrettably, this has driven us to these immediate actions.”
Other private hospitals are facing similar circumstances.
“We need it to be solved by the end of this weekend or hospitals will start to close,” Australian Private Hospitals Association CEO Michael Roff said to 9News.
Ramsay Health Care has 25,000 beds available at 72 private hospitals and is now placing staff on leave. Another private hospital company Healthscope has 4400 beds at 43 hospitals.
Australian states and territories in charge of their hospital systems are in the midst of crisis talks to stay afloat. The federal government has joined the fray as well.
“The important thing is that we keep beds open, particularly ICU beds,” Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack said to 9News.
Governments could temporarily obtain beds or pay nurses to be available when they are desperately needed.
Health Minister Greg Hunt declared that firing nurses during this crisis “is an astonishing breach of faith”.
Although Australia and the U.S. have Anglo-Saxon origins, they do depart in several ways.
On the healthcare front, the U.S. system may not be ideal, but it has enough market features to function properly in a time of crisis.
Man Who Brutally Assaulted Michigan Nursing Home Resident Arrested, Charged, and Named
The brute’s name is Jayden Hayden.
The perpetrator of a horrific taped assault at a patient at a Michigan nursing home has been arrested, charged, and finally named.
Detroit Police arrested 20-year old Jayden Hayden of Ypsilanti, Michigan on Sunday morning. Hayden is being charged with assault with intent to do great bodily harm, larceny in a building and two counts of financial transaction device, steal/retain without consent.
The financial crimes relate to Hayden allegedly stealing the credit cards of 75-year old Norman Bledsoe.
The conscience of the nation had been shocked when video of Hayden brutally assaulting the senior citizen in a nursing home bedroom went viral. President Trump himself expressed his shock at the callous footage, in which Hayden repeatedly punched and beat the U.S. Army veteran.

Hayden has apparently uploaded videos online of other despicable assaults against senior citizens.
Detroit Prosecutor Kym Worthy expressed her resolve to hold Hayden criminally accountable for the heinous crime.
“The alleged actions of this defendant are truly and uniquely disturbing. We must be able to trust our loved ones in specialty care facilities. I truly hope that the facts of this care are one of a kind.” Hayden was arraigned in court on Sunday morning.
New facts of the case seem to suggest that Hayden himself was a short-term resident of the Westwood Nursing Center, as opposed to an employee of the facility, which some had speculated.
Hayden seems to express racist and anti-white beliefs in some of his social media uploads, stating that he believes that “black people are meant to rule the earth.” However, it doesn’t appear as if local authorities are treating the savage, cowardly assault as a hate crime at this point.
