    No surprise that, to be honest against a background of exploding case numbers (700+ new cases for the province reported today).
    To put those numbers in perspective, at 700 a day we rack up around 5,000 in a week, that equates 3,500 per million inhabitants. In most of Europe, around 2,500 per million per week is considered a manageable level of infections, anywhere above that will put too much strain on the medical infrastructure. When you consider that across Europe the available hospital beds run at around 5,000 per million inhabitants, then Negros Oriental would need to have 7,000 beds to be on par. In reality there are 300 or so beds (available for covid patients). So no wonder hospitals can't cope here.
    I know there's a much younger population here diminishing the need for beds, but even so, I think my argument does hold a fair amount of water.

    Jim mate, do you mean there was no one to see or they would not see you because you were showing signs of Covid? :hmmm: I had a runny nose from allergies and the Doctor would not entertain me even though my pre screening was good :cautious:

    I went to triage to give information and the guy said go to see a doctor in respiratory dept but he was out doing house calls, I waited 2 hours outside the building feeling shite I went home. I might just stay home and hope this fever goes away.

    ACE hospital has a drive through lane for testing.

    Provincial hospital also has a Covid clinic in one of the buildings.

    If you are offered one of the vaccines take it even if it is not the one you've waited for. Within two weeks Covid antibodies build up allowing your body to fight this thing off short of having hospital admittance and being in line for the next ventilator.

    I think feeling shite will be nothing compared to what you will feel in one of the isolation shitholes or if you want to pay for the hotel room with no windows.
    I would not go near any hospitals or testing centres unless i had to be carried there.

    Wow! Where did you find 700 reported? I can't really understand those video conferences so far, and it's an arduous task to get my wife to listen. As for standard of care, the outside tent, space on the concrete apron, or lined up cars and oxygen tanks for the overflow seems to be the way the surge is dealt with. (Peso problems too.) I think there are wide disparities in triage, but don't know. Who wants to look at the oxymeter and realize it's time to go in when everything is already maxed out? I don't think the Doctors are slouches here, normal amount of duds, but there have been no big advances in therapeutics so far. A few things they can do, but it's up to your body.

    I found the 700 in the doh reporting on sunday, but sadly with every new day the old report disappears. To be honest, with a little hindsight I do think the high number for sunday was probably due to delays in test results for earlier days.
    Obviously though, if we can't trust the high numbers when reported, then we can't trust yesterday's number of 34 new cases either.
