COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
« Reply #3285 on: August 03, 2020, 02:20:52 PM »
It's been a while since this was discussed, but over the weekend I heard about 2 people who were severely neglected in the early days of coronavirus.

One is my cousin who was rushed to Monmouth hospital for an induction so she didn't have time to pack up or prepare. Her husband was home sick with corona, and she forgot her phone charger at home so she had no contact with the outside world. After not eating during the whole L&D process, it took another 30 hours before she got any food. They claimed there was no kosher food available, but she didn't get the "non-kosher" dairy food even though she asked for it and would have eaten cholov stam which she otherwise would never eat.

The second was in NY hospitalized with corona, when the nurse came in on Monday morning to write her name and the day on the  board, he asked for water and was told they will bring him water. The next time someone came in was Tuesday morning again to write her name and the day on the board, he again asked for water and was told they would bring it. Later that day, left with no choice he took a bottle of alcohol that was left in the room, crawled to the toilet, sanitized the toiled with the alcohol, and drank out of the toilet.
Why couldn't he drink from the sink?

Sorry but I don't believe that

I'm sorry that these happened to people you know, or know about.  I can imagine how traumatic this must have been, and I hope they have recovered, and are getting whatever therapy they is appropriate.

The story of your cousin seems to illustrate the concern with "flattening the curve", that is helping hospitals to not get overwhelmed, which obviously was not completely successful. 

The second story sounds similar to stories told by other hospitalized covid-19 patients, who recall what were, in retrospect, terrifying hallucinations.  I remember one was a doctor, a patient in his own hospital, who had been convinced that the doctors and nurses caring for him were conspiring to kill him.

The biggest issue was the fact that no one was allowed in, so not only was there an influx of patients, there was also no staff/volunteers/family to take care of non-medical needs like this.

This is entirely possible, as I don't know this person. I heard it from a relative of mine who is a close friend of his relative.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Yeah, seems like the fact that said person supposedly bypassed the sink and went for toilet makes this sound fake.

Reminds me of talk early on about people drinking bleach or something.

Does that also mean that Yeshivos are OFFICIALLY allowed to open, and can issue I-20s? Though I'm not sure how that might help if US consular services aren't operating to issue the F1 visas.
