Hospitals around the country are laying off workers due to lack of capacity even though many experts predict that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is still to come.
Becker’s Hospital Review compiled a list of 94 hospitals that have instituted layoffs thus far across the U.S. amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The industry claims this is happening because demand for elective surgeries is down and that has dried up hospital revenue substantially.
“Many U.S. hospitals and health systems have suspended elective procedures to save capacity, supplies and staff to treat COVID-19 patients,” they wrote in their review. “As a result of suspending these nonemergent procedures, several systems have lost or expect to lose a large chunk of their annual revenue, forcing them to make cost reduction a top priority.”
Some recent examples include the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) announcing that they are laying off over 60 couriers, lab assistants, and patient support staff workers. The DMC said that 27 employees would be laid off from the Children’s Hospital with the other 38 workers losing their jobs from the rest of their Detroit campus.
“Business has slowed a lot because a lot of doctor’s offices aren’t open, which is kind of strange because we’re in a pandemic,” a courier told Bridge Michigan.
Kalispell hospital announced a series of layoffs and pay cuts that will affect approximately 600 workers in Helena, Mont. They also claim the layoffs are only temporary and will be eager to bring back members of the workforce displaced by the pandemic.
“I am confident that we will ramp back up quickly once it is safe to do so,” Lambrecht said. “It is my hope that everyone can weather this uncertain time and emerge safe and well.”
The North Carolina Nurses Association found out through their survey of 400 nurses across the state that staff hours have been cut, widespread “temporary” layoffs have been instituted, and staffers have been told to take their paid time off to make up for the losses.
“It’s definitely not the situation you might think would happen during a pandemic,” said North Carolina Nurses Association CEO Tina Gordon.
East Texas hospitals are furloughing workers and reducing the hours for employees as well. UT Health East Texas and CHRISTUS Health say that the coronavirus panic is causing far fewer non-coronavirus patients and killing their business.
“I think every system across the country is having to look at what they have to do to continue to provide care and services in this rather challenging environment,” said Dr. Tom Cummins, Chief Medical Officer of UT Health East Texas, during a Thursday news conference.
With the coronavirus pandemic not living up to the media hype quiet yet, the health care industry has been rocked like every other sector. The damage to the U.S. economy is rapidly compounding as the lock down continues.
Former British Spy Chief Believes COVID-19 Was Created in a Chinese Lab ‘As an Accident’
The security expert points to evidence to back his claim.
Sir Richard Dearlove, who was the former leader of the MI6 secret intelligence service in Britain, has said that he believes COVID-19 was created in a Chinese laboratory.
Dearlove told The Telegraph that he came to his informed conclusion after seeing an “important” new scientific report indicating that the virus was made by man and did not emerge naturally. The study he cited was undertaken by Professor Angus Dalgleish of St George’s Hospital, University of London, and Norwegian virologist Birger Sorensen.
These scientists discovered “inserted sections placed on the Sars-CoV-2 Spike surface,” which allows the virus to more easily invade cells. They also noted that the virus was “significantly different from any Sars we have studied” in their report. Although they stopped short of calling it a deliberate bioweapon, they came to the conclusion that the virus was in fact man made.
Dearlove, who led MI6 from from 1999 until 2004, believes that this news will eventually be used to compel China to pay “reparations” to nations across the world for the damage they have caused with their virus.
“I do not think that this started as an accident,” Dearlove said while appearing on the “Planet Normal” podcast.
“I think it will make every country in the world rethink how it treats its relationship with China,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported for many months on how it was obvious that the coronavirus pandemic began as the result of Chinese mad science:
A molecular biologist is blowing the whistle regarding reports that the Chinese coronavirus was not designed as a weapon of bioterrorism.
Richard H. Ebright, a professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University, believes that it is entirely possible that the coronavirus could be a bioweapon and those claims should not be dismissed before serious inquiry can be conducted.
“A denial is not a refutation,” Ebright said in reference to Chinese virologist Shi Zhengli, who works at the research lab in Wuhan that has been widely speculated to be behind the coronavirus outbreak.
The research facility in Wuhan opened up in 2017 despite objections that highly infectious diseases could spread from the center…
Ebright praised Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) for his willingness to push back against Chinese propaganda with regards to the origins of the coronavirus.
“After concealing the virus for many weeks in December and then minimizing its severity for most of January, they then peddle an origin story about the food market in Wuhan.” Cotton said during an interview with The Daily Caller.
“Given their dishonesty and the proximity of these labs, which we know were working with coronaviruses, it is only reasonable and responsible for us to ask the question and demand the answers,” he added.
The truth is finally coming out about the origins of coronavirus, which is probably why race riots were promulgated by the fake news media at this very moment.
