Clearing House" - Tainted test kits. Censored scientists. Mixed
messages. The US health system is struggling to come
to grips with COVID-19. Now, it's reporting the
highest fatality rate in the world.
United States medical workers are up in arms.
They know the world has had two months warning of a
highly contagious new virus. By all accounts, it's a
nasty one. It's certainly more deadly than flu.
They believe it has been "circulating unchecked"
within the US for weeks.
But there are almost no test kits to prove it.
Instead, they're seeing critical care patients
seemingly emerge from nowhere.
Now they're getting infected themselves.
A sick Californian nurse made a desperate appeal
She says the federal Centres for Disease Control
had been unwilling, or unable, to test her for
COVID-19. Her patients may have infected her. She
may have infected others.
She had volunteered to help.
"I did this because I had all the recommended
protective gear and training from my employer," she
wrote in an open letter. "I did this assuming that
if something happened to me, of course, I too would
be cared for."
She was wrong.
The protective gear did not work. She is sick.
But she's not getting any treatment.
