    Default Idaho Collapsing Under Pandemic, But Still Not Getting Vaccinated

    All Idaho hospitals have been on "crisis standards" since September 16th. They have not only filled their own hospitals, but also Washington's hospitals. They have ended up sending patients to the majority of other states, while sending the bill for all this air traffic to the federal government. A patient (without health insurance, of course) was actually flown to NYC from Idaho. Chicago hospitals have gotten over a hundred Idaho patients.

    You would think they would react to all this failure by reversing their positions and getting vaccinated, but no. Idahoans are still refusing to vaccinate.

    Worse yet, they are attacking doctors and nurses for even implying they should get vaccinated.

    If the Trumpoids want to eradicate themselves, let them.

    Yeah, that’s great, but I live in Boise and got breakthrough COVID from my asymptomatic grandkids. They got it in their anti-vax school district.

    I agree. Let the unvaxxed idiots die off, but I was sicker than hell for a couple weeks with longer to fully recover. I avoided the need for a doctor or hospital, but that bug was a bitch.

    So, the unvaxxed still pose a risk to us all.

    Sorry to hear about you getting ill with covid, and glad to see you back. The truth is that this anti-vax Bs is putting everybody at risk.

    They’re talking about hospitalizations, too, you fucking moron. 34th might sound great, but if the infrastructure is not there to handle a lot fewer people, the hospitals still become overwhelmed. There’s only a few real population centers in the state. The rest is very rural.

    The truth is, moron, they are rationing health care here, whether it be 10th, 20th or 50th.

    Idaho has been exporting a lot of their patients right before they die. I guess that seems like "winning" to you.

    Idaho is an epic failure... Or put another way, I cannot imagine someone with Covid-19 being flown from NYC to Idaho, can you?

    Probably, the only major hospitals are in the 5 or 6 population areas. There are few to no major hospitals and lots of distance in between. Lewiston and Idaho falls MIGHT have one major hospital each.

    Coeur d’Alene, 120 miles to
    Lewiston, 267 miles to
    Boise, 120 miles to
    Twin Falls, 113 miles to
    Pocatello, 52 miles to
    Idaho Falls

    That’s it.

    There is also a huge problem with just finding a doctor. Doctors do not like living in the countryside. They want their Chinese food, and schools for their children that teach math and science.

    And if you have a serious medical problem anywhere else in the state, COVID or other, you head to one of those few population centers who have the facilities to handle it.
