One thought on “Indiana reports 31 more COVID-19 deaths

  1. A relative has had trouble getting in for a normal outpatient diagnostic procedure because the health care system is (1) clogged up with unvaccinated Covid patients, and (2) because nurses and doctors are burned out by this wave of mostly preventable disease.

    And despite being healthy I don’t really want to die of something treatable (car accident) because I can’t get into an ER or hospital bed.

    Just get vaccinated. Before hospitals start rationing care and putting unvaxed Covid patients at the bottom of the priority list.
