The shipment of 211 received this morning was brought by FedEx. So far in the month of May Mexico has received 610 ventilators from the USA that we purchased including the arrival of 211 today.

With a mortality rate of 70%+ I would question the thought of having to going through that procedure. Surgeons are being traumatised with seeing such a high rate of deaths

only 80 plus die..on ventilators.. That is what we were told when my brother went on on and indeed he did die.. There are also nasty sequels from them when people survive.. People have to be put n a coma to  be able to go on them and many thngs can go wrong.&00 ventlators means 480 deaths...Pretty scary

I have heard if under 60 about 30% survival rate 60+ 20%. All I can say is they will not snake any tube down my throat. I have hydroxicoloquine, z pack and zinc. I'll will take my chances at home. Hospitals is where people die.

And when the US Native tribes asked for COVID-19 supplies, they were sent body bags -- not just to one tribe, but several. This is not a made up story. That's REALLY happening in the  USA right now.

Sadly the Ventilator is not turning out to be the fix one expected, quite the opposite 

As health officials around the world push to get more ventilators to treat coronavirus patients, some doctors are moving away from using the breathing machines when they can. The reason: Some hospitals have reported unusually high death rates for coronavirus patients on ventilators, and some doctors worry that the machines could be harming certain patients"

The body bags were shipped by King county Wa. In what they said was a mistake. The funding for Federal Indian Health Board for the covid pandemic was passed by the House of Reps but stalled for more than a month in some legal dispute. The Federal Gov started distributing Billions of dollars Tuesday to Native American Tribal government.

True. The high pressure needed to force oxygen into the lungs does permanent damage.
