This is a shame. We're supposed to be the richest country in the world.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/why-nurses-quit-during-coronavirus-104910947.html

Nurses fear that with the shortcuts they have to take regarding personal protection protocols, they will infect their families so they are quitting.

We have 30% of the world's fatality by COVID-19 with less than 5% of the world's population, and idiots like Trump and Jared are saying that we're doing just fine.

Just in case you may have missed it. This is a whistleblower thing and has to do with the Trump administration being unwilling to supply PPE unless it comes from businesses of their friends, even though there were options. (this is pretty disgusting)

Wow. Disgusting. That's the kind of thing the American people need to know, in November.

And a big part of that is because of our own behavior. Not most of us here at CHB, but "us" in the larger sense. I think citizens of other countries are just better at following public health rules. We have a huge percentage of our population who believes their freedumb to do anything they damn well please is more important than listening to the gubmint. And they have a cheerleader-in-chief who encourages them to grab their AR-15s and invade the state capital without masks, etc.

If Trump dies from the recent White House outbreak, these morons might take that as a sign from God that they need to put on masks and maintain physical distance. The way things are going now, we're going to have more infection waves, new quarantines, and lots of dead folks.

Like it's been said, the Antichrist doesn't get felled by viruses that bring mere mortals down.

Explains why all of the masks I ordered for our production staff got "diverted at customs." Just found this out today.

There is an American company, headquartered in California, selling N95 masks. $2.50 each but they only sell in bulk, 1,000 pieces minimum but if you are a business and you need it for your employees, might be a way to go. They also sell hospital-grade facemasks for 68 cents, and regular facemasks for 25 cents. I don't remember the name of the company (I have their contact info at work). Again, even the other masks, the minimum quantity is 1,000 units. If you're interested, let me know and tomorrow I'll find the contact info for you.

It doesn't help that the supposed leader of America, President Trump stands firmly in the camp of them that don't wear masks, are ignorant to the point of hurting themselves and others, and yell a lot. He never misses an opportunity to show his disdain for government experts thereby encouraging lunacy.

Fifty bucks says Trump is going to soon say that "people who are still wearing masks after the pandemic is over are unamerican".
Of course, only Trump gets to judge when the pandemic is over, don't ever forget that.

Trump is going to brand mask wearing as a political act.
