Washington state Governor Jay Inslee announced on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 that he would be returning a field hospital that was built in Seattle’s CenturyLink Field Event Center to the federal government.
The hospital was ostensibly built to help the health care system fend off the Wuhan Virus.
In recent days, Inslee has pointed to more favorable numbers in terms of virus infections in the state. At one point, Washington led the nation in terms of cases and deaths. As of April 8, there were 9,097 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus in Washington, along with 421 deaths.
The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation even suggested in a recent report that Washington may have reached its peak for Wuhan Virus hospitalizations.
On top of returning the field hospital, Inslee announced on April 5 that he was returning 400 ventilators to the federal government’s national stockpile in order to help other states more impacted by the Wuhan Virus.
In his statement made on April 8, the governor said the move to take down the field hospital will allow the facility to “be deployed to another state facing a more significant need.”
According to Inslee spokesman Mike Faulk, the field hospital never treated a single patient.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan believed that Inslee’s announcement was the right decision, because the region’s hospitals appear to have enough of an infrastructure to handle these cases.
“While Seattle fought hard for these resources, it’s clear other communities are in desperate need of this high-quality medical facility and personnel,” Durkan stated. “This virus knows no borders, and we must care for the sick and vulnerable, regardless of any city, county, or state line.”
This case shows how certain parts of the country are not as impacted by pandemic as others.
Such developments vindicate President Donald Trump’s level-headed approach to addressing the Wuhan Virus pandemic by giving states more leeway in handling the situation.
A one-size-fits-all approach would have resulted in potential abuses of civil liberties and economic power grabs.
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.
