  • P Becks says:

    That is why nurses are getting so sick. Over exposure to the virus..

  • Sparrow L says:

    This is exactly why the bible lists clean and unclean meats. It wasn’t just about ceremonial purity, it was also about keeping people throughout the centuries healthy, and protecting them from themselves. Before people could even understand what diseases were and how they were transmitted, God created measures to protect them. There’s so much truth in the Word, and so few who care to find it. Please read your bibles, people, and utilize materials like Walter Veith’s Total Onslaught vids, Nader Mansour’s Youtube vids, and Ellen White’s Conflict of the Ages books.

  • nunnya biznez says:

    She’s a np, shes not taking an assignment of patients and doing bedside care cleaning up stool, vomit, urine….and to the news commentator, she’s not “working around the clock”. She’s getting some rest. She stated shes working five days a week instead of her usual three.

    #COVID-19 #MIDWEST #coronavirus #Detroit bus driver dies from COVID-19 Detroit 1st responders & state workers are not receiving the correct equipment to battle #COVID-19. They should be wearing n99 or n100 masks. Bus driver Jason Hargrove spoke to the people of Detroit on video March 21, trying to get them to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously. He was upset that a woman had taken no measures to cover her coughing when she was on his bus. “For us to get through this and get over this, y’all need to take this seriously,” he said with an expletive thrown in…

  • Gary Eng says:

    It is pure greed in America. Funny, it all started when Clinton was first elected. No one thinks it is odd he went from 0 to 100 million during his presidency.

  • masguapoako says:

    instead of Trump and company telling people to stay home, have ER
    doctors tell horror stories about COVID 19, maybe people will finally

  • takemethere78 says:

    Ppl dont know how important these heros are untill cases like this. God bless them putting their lives on hold and risking their safety to help many others. I been praying now more then ever.

  • Cindy Schmidt says:

    My sister works at a nursing home that has a couple covid patients and they have to wear masks, gowns, AND safety medical goggles. Why don’t these nurses or doctors have the goggles also? You would think in ICU especially they would have to wear full gear. Something seems fishy in all of these videos about nurses and hospitals.

  • A T says:

    I could barley breath for 8 hours and was sent away from the ER because I was not old enough. Tons of people are going to die due to mis- information. I’ve never been that scared in my life. Feel horrible but I can breathe again.

    • Genevieve55 says:

      Yeah I had shortness of breath but they wouldn’t test me because of my age. Luckily my vitals and x-ray were good but still, we need more testing. Not just the old and the immunocompromised.

  • Barbara Van Der Vaart says:

    yes she is an NP Master’s degree and can prescribe medication etc. Not a nurse as NBC said!

  • Cheryl Williams says:

    Thank you and all the medical staff that is taking risk and caring for the sick. God bless you and your family

  • gorman1 says:

    U should all be wearing goggles guys.

    TRIBUTE TO THE NURSES OF THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC. As a retired nurse, I write these words in honor of the nurses who serve today during the crisis in our country.

    “The Nurses of The Coronavirus Pandemic”

    They wake to greet another day –
    They put on their uniform without delay –
    They prepare as soldiers
    To ready themselves for war
    In an effort to alleviate the pain of death’s scar –
    They prepare to ease
    Dreadful suffering and pain they see –
    As they come face to face with evidence of disease –
    They ask not why nor question what they must face
    Yet they are ever mindful that but for God’s grace
    They too could be the one in their patient’s place.”

    Fakeeeeeeee 👎🤭

  • 0351nick says:

  • Tom Piscitelli says:

  • Greg Kalla says:

    How come this is happening on the east coast, but not in the Bay Area CA?

  • lpz says:

    Oh my God she slept in her bed.. got to take a shower first thing in the morning. She didn’t have traffic whizzing by her head all night or a reefer unit turning on and turning off. As a truck driver working 20-hour days and 4 hours sleep. I really feel for these nurses. I heard on TV one complaining about a 12-hour day mine are almost always 14-hour days without the Coronavirus. Don’t get me wrong.. I volunteered extra. I’m doing this for America. I’m doing it for the nurses the fireman our military personnel and this civilian.. you fight I fight we all fight. Stop complaining and get back to work.

    • Dilbert Doe says:

      I see someone is upset his truck driving skills aren’t being appreciated enough.

  • Nicole says:

    If no one ever said how much we appreciate you for putting your lives on the line to take care of others…. Well I want to say thank you THANK YOU. You are amazing and very much appreciated. Thank you to all the nurses and doctors who are taking care of all the covid-19 patients. Thank you for working the long hours that you do to save others. WE ALL love you and we all APPRECIATE YOU!. May God continue to bless you all to give you strength to keep helping others dealing with this dangerous invisible devil disease called coronavirus. This too shall pass!

  • Ian Drake says:

    Shills and actors , hospitals are on drill for what’s really coming in .

    • Dilbert Doe says:

      That you Alex Jones?

  • Robbbyg says:

    Doctors are being told to lie about cause of death
    Exposing covid death certificates

  • Pia Love says:

    I dont mean to sound uncaring, but for the extra risk that this virus is putting on our lives….we should see more pay. Skip the 7 minute grace period on the clock…if a nurse shows up early…pay him/her for their courage. These organizations are filled with increased risk. Where are the healthy environment consultants during this time? Are there CBT therapist on site at the hospital or nursing home?

  • Edward Decker says:

    As a U.S. Marine I spent close to 14 months in 5 different hospitals, because I had 3 types of malaria at the same time. That left me with medical issues that gave me 20 operations in the past 50 years. And since nature, or God if you choose, is not kind to some of us, I’ve had 10 other operations in that same time period. So you could say I’m an expert on nurses, and everyone else in a hospital. When I had the malaria it wasn’t the medicine or the doctors that brought me back; it was a freckled faced red headed Irish nurse who would wipe me down with alcohol in front of a fan trying to bring my temperature down, who whispered sweet nothings in my ear, telling me I can make it. I got the same thing after a 10 hour surgery to remove 2 tumors from my spine. It’s the people who bring you food, help you get out of bed, and hold your arm as you try to walk again. It’s the little people who clean your room, and take out the trash. In my opinion they are overworked, and under paid. The doctors show up twice a day, while they are their 24/7. It takes a special breed of people that deal with the whining, and moaning that so many ungrateful people give them when they are sick. I’ve been in 3 armed conflicts for this country, I’ve been shot, and stabbed, and would rather face a dozen enemies armed with stick, then do what these people do! Courage comes from the heart, and these people have big hearts!

  • jeff strong says:

    China declared war on the world. They used bio weapons and playing blind eye blaming others. This virus is man made and Wuhan lab published about this virus from rats and bats back in 2015. There are just too many proof what they did. Since China made this virus that they might be hiding vaccine just for themselves just let the world die first so they can dominate the world. There is solutions to that. It’s called nuclear weapons on China.

  • Mahair Ashaboon says:

    When will Americans understand the message from God?
    COVID-19 corona virus has been sent by God upon Americans which infected and killed thousands of Americans
    Americans elected their government who arrested, tortured and, killed lots of people (whom God created) in Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and Syria and in other places where USA’ s proxies did according to the orders of their ruler the US government
    Therefore Americans should understand that this virus is a kind of punishment for what they did to God’s creatures but when will they understand this message? I wonder!!!
