I'm not sure how the hell they're saying covid cases are down. We still have hospitals turning away transfers hand over fist here. Here's a news article about it.

Now my thing is this part of it right here.
"It's really a combination of two things. With ICU beds, it's really just beds but it starts with staff. If you don't have adequate staff, you can't open every single bed you have available to you," Shaw said.

UNMC's Nursing College Dean Juliann Sebastian says enrollment in their nursing program is robust, but hospitals still face staffing shortages due to sheer demand.
"Demand is really increasing, so this is not a question of people not being interested in nursing and not enrolling in nursing, but demand is outstripping supply," Sebastian said.

So how the hell are cases falling and demand increasing at the same damn time? Somebody somewhere is full of shit.

You also have to remember that a good many nurses and doctors have quit over this. They've been pushed to the brink for going on two years straight and a lot of them just said, "Screw this! It's not worth it!" and walked out.

There's also not a long line of people getting into nursing for the same reason. Why go through all that shit for a mediocre paycheck and all the baggage that goes with it?

People are realizing through this covid thing that a lot of what they do is simply not worth the effort anymore. It's going to come back sooner or later (I'm betting sooner) and really bite us (the United States) in the ass. Hard.

Good point.
