“Triage” — the order wherein medical situations are handled — has historically been assigned both by the diploma of severity of ready sufferers’ issues or given first to sufferers who’re principally more likely to survive when medical provides or workers are critically low. In gentle of the truth that Utah hospitals are (or could also be by the point that is revealed) at most capability resulting from all of the unvaccinated COVID-19 sufferers clogging up ERs and ICUs, I suggest a brand new twist on triage.
If area is offered to deal with the unvaccinated, give them a mattress. If not, it should be given to a affected person who’s vaccinated or has another situation. The unvaccinated will be handled in giant Military tents erected in parking tons the place they are going to be attended by hospital personnel if out there or, if not, by volunteers from the web who profess experience in treating COVID with hydroxychloroquine, dewormer, prayers or perhaps even gentle remedy or bleach.
In spite of everything, many vaccine-reluctants proclaim “medical freedom,” so they need to be prepared to let hospitals train their medical freedom to not deal with them once they overwhelm the system. Libertarian thinkers also needs to be fairly accepting of such a merit-based, free-market program.
