Total chaos if you believe the media

Why do Americans always have to go one step too far, seriously, that sorts BS will make it to Australia within a week.
Yanks don’t want a day off, thrive on drama.
More people have strokes per year and have longer Hospital stays than that. What about heart patients and heart surgery?
First off, if these statistics are right, then nobody is recovering. Only 394 cases where people recovered? That sounds like an insane number to me. It also says 67,063 are active cases and 1,032 deaths!! That means barely anyone who has gotten coronavirus has recovered.
Why can't we handle 68,489 cases? What if there was a mild flu outbreak? Would we have to shut everything because of that?

Frankly, that makes no sense.
If all of these people are recovered and just have mild symptoms then that's just a few thousand cases across the Country.
If that's the case, then why are they talking about not resuscitating COVID patients? Why are they talking about morgues and hospitals being overrun? Why are they having all of these shortages if only a few thousand get really sick?
Either it's being massively overhyped or they're not telling us how serious it really is.
