Hospitals and medical clinics all across The United States are fast depleting their supplies of key medical items such as face masks and other hygienic materials …. test kits too!
And the shortages are all connected to the fact that these things come primarily from China and China has closed down factories and The United States isn’t importing as much from China and the situation is getting so desperate that some health care providers are making their own improvised items and asking the public for donations of these things.
Governors of states all across the nation are becoming increasingly alarmed because of the fast disappearing supply of critical medical supplies and the president has reportedly told somebody that it is up to the various states to come up with the things that are needed because it is not the business of the federal government to be buying things and shipping them out to the states. Thanks as lot, Trump!
If this keeps up we can almost be assured that more and more health care staff members are going to become sick and are going to be unable to care for patients. If that happens then more people are sure to die! But that is alright because it is not the business of the federal government to buy medical supplies and ship them out to the states.
The shortage is getting so critical that the Center For Disease Control has now issued orders to health care providers to wear simple everyday bandanas in situations where masks are unattainable.
