I have started to see stories of the National Guard and Police guarding hospitals for the chaos that is soon approaching. What happens when someone you love is put in the hospital or sick tent and you cannot visit, communicate, or get a status on what is going on?

I am not sure if everyone is up to date on the model but so far it has been pretty accurate.

Nobody is prepared. I’ve been watching way too much news. It’s interesting watching the Governors. You can see the difference in their whole demeanor in just a few days time. The tsunami is ready to crash in some places. Thank God the governor of my state acted quickly and we are pretty spread out to begin with

Thanks.
Do you think they might shoot people? Or are they going to assist with, like traffic control, logistics, and stuff?

That is a very good question. For me, if I wind up in the hospital I will not allow my husband or daughter to visit me at all. If I am that sick that I am in need of hospital care i would insist they leave me be; I am confident they would listen. However, if either one of them winds up in the hospital nothing would stop me from visiting them.

Who would be prepared?

Those that fantasized about thousands dead and wouldn't be caught off guard?

Those that fixate on this specific thing and breakdown over 10's of thousands of people that die(even though that happens every year from various different annual occurrences?).

I also don't trust a linear math model, which I'm assuming that is, that is just going off past data to project future totals without any regard to factors that could change the rate and totals of said model.

I'm of the belief that answers will be found and that measures will be taken to lessen the symptoms and ultimately the figures projected in those figures while be in error. If not, it is what it is. If we exhaust all our options and explore all avenues. Does it really matter if we are "prepared" or not. Humans aren't the conductors of the universe.

Including their own wishes?

How does that work?

Yes, including their own "wishes". They are more loving and fragile than I am- I would never leave them in the hospital alone. I have contingency plans for many scenarios.

You can't. You will not be allowed.

I assume that is what the police and guard forces are for. To prevent people from entering the quarantined zones.

It’s been around since October at least...... Italy is so bad because it’s 116k square miles.... it’s a cesspool of people who eat and drink all day and are overweight; who also kiss cheeks everytime they meet and most the population is over 60..... so that is a bad combo; but I’m moving to comedy lol....... what’s the best grain of bullet to eat?

QUARANTIN-OA!

You have no choice. Parents are separated sometimes miles away for 14 days without seeing their child

The country is already agitated and at odds with each other about whether or not to stay home, so IMO, I don't see that changing any, other than intensifying & maybe coming to a head, if Great Aunt Edna gets the virus and goes MIA.

Crap happens, we either deal with it, or we don't. If someone I know ends up in your scenario there, I'll be patient and carry on until I'm updated. To me, it's not worth freaking out over if I don't HAVE the necessary info to freak out over.

Other way round, keep the infected in.

The top news story tonight in the metropolitan area I live in is that all of the intensive and critical care unit beds are full.

I'm sure it's already the case in other US cities and that more will join the list in the coming days.

From where I'm sitting if loved one falls ill and gets a bed and a respirator, whether or not I can contact them will still be seen as a blessing.

My worry now is the very real possibility that I might see people I know or love being told to go home because there's no room at the inn.
