'Where are the strokes and the heart attacks?'
Before the coronavirus hit, tens of thousands of people across the state sought emergency help each day. But in the weeks since the virus began its spread throughout the U.S., those numbers have plummeted by a third to a half, according to physicians overseeing emergency departments in hospitals across Los Angeles County and elsewhere in California.

The steep decline comes amid drastic measures hospitals have put in place to prepare for what health officials fear could be a wave of patients infected by the coronavirus like the ones that have overwhelmed hospitals in New York City and elsewhere.

So far, the numbers of people sickened by the virus in California have been manageable. But now doctors and health officials are increasingly worried that steps taken to keep hospitals at the ready, along with a widespread public fear the virus is rife in emergency rooms, have left people who are in ...

Same here in little ole NZ. We have been scared into a continuing lock down situation with our Govt completely ignoring the real stat's. the economic fallout is too awful to contemplate. But the Socialist agenda of our current Govt rolls on...

Thats a great point, HerbalMama. Having some years ago sat for several hours having come into the ER with stroke symptoms, I learned that I picked a day that folks were trying to extend their weekends. Many were leaving in a huff having been told the length of the wait. It was a sight...and an education.

Strange isn't it. Hospitals are essential yet they're laying off. The proof is in the pudding- we're overwhelmed by the virus and all of us are going to die. *eye roll*

The Quiet Christian, you bring to surface a flaw that needs to be addressed. A lot of folks use the er because they don't have insurance. If you need antibiotics for a bad infection and can't afford the 100 co pay for urgent care (assuming you can afford insurance, otherwise full price for you) then the er is the only alternative.

My son is in the medical field and is in and out of hospitals in his county daily.
Today at the hospital in his hometown there were only 4 people in hospital. His town is a population of over 50,000.00 people.
We are being lied to folks concerning the people who have this ‘virus’ and dying from it.
My town has 4 known cases, and we are in shutdown till the end of May.😳

In our area, a local hospital is laying off dozens of folks because Gov Cuomo's edict is that no elective or non emergency work is to be done, to make room for the vast virus influx. Since Covid19 is not developing into the hospital horror as prophecied, they have nothing to do under this bad data model response. So long, have fun on unemployment, stay home, stay safe. Maybe the gov can drive the hospital out of business. He's experienced at driving business and individuals out of the State.

Here in Italy it makes no difference whether there are no preexisting conditions or a whole host of preexisting conditions. The cause of death is due to covid-19.

I beleiev that the hook of this article is erroneous. Yes, lots of people seek help at Emergency Departments. But most of them do not meet the criteria for a life threatening situation. It is an uber-urgent care for some. It is an excuse to not go to work for others, e.g. "Sorry, boss, I can't come in today. I'm so sick or hurt I had to come to the ER." Many of those goldbrickers are already home. So of course numbers are down

Meanwhile, the most serious cases come in by ambulance as stroke & heart attack are 911 emergencies. And, as they are reporting here, COVID-19 causes blood clots which are causing strokes, etc.

Pretty sure, Carl, it’s a funding issue. More Covid 19 deaths bring more federal money.

No doubt, death from strokes, heart attacks, and diabetes did not take a vacation. The death count of the coronavirus has been amended to include "probable" cause of death of those who have died before being officially diagnosed as having the virus. Thus, if someone passes away at home from a stroke or heart attack and their autopsy reveal that they had the virus' antibody within them it will be recorded as coronavirus as the "probable" cause of death. The "rationale" is that it is possible that the virus put an additional burden on their underlying medical condition that caused them to die.

Okay..., but I think some of the Democratic governors are taking advantage of this "probable" cause of death to increase their coronavirus' official numbers. I am trying to find confirmation if some governors are pumping up the coronavirus death toll to help give the investigating Congressional House committee ammunition to give Trump a black eye in how his administration is handling control of the pandemic. I am hearing anecdotally that even if someone dies in a traffic accident and evidence is shown in their autopsy that they have or had the virus that their death will be classified as "probable" and included with the official number of coronavirus deaths.

They don't go to church for the same reason.

For all the pronouncements of “follow the science” it seems superstition and bogeyman fear have taken the reigns.

Some people in the UK won't go near a hospital for fear of catching something.
