Nurse Says Some Dying COVID Patients Still Don't Believe Disease is Real

Nurse Says Some Dying COVID Patients Still Don't Believe Disease is Real: WATCH Denial Doesn't End With Intubation -- ER Nurse Says Dying Patients Still Deny COVID-19 Exists

Governor Kristi Noem in an address to the state on Tuesday said, "People who choose not to wear masks shouldn't be shamed and treat them with respect".

Doering said that nurses are meant to be a last line of defense, and that things like social distancing and masks should be utilized. She said she doesn't believe her powers as governor allow her to issue a mask mandate.

She told the news channel's presenter: "I think the hardest thing to watch is that people are still looking for something else and they want a magic answer, and they don't want to believe that Covid is real".

South Dakota led the U.S. in new cases and deaths per capita last week, but the governor, Republican Kristi L. Noem, has consistently refused to implement a statewide mask mandate, and has sided with President Trump in showing disdain and antagonism towards mainstream scientific opinion.

Now that the city leaders of Sioux Falls have voted in favor of a mask mandate ordinance will other cities across the state do the same if not already having one?

It is a chilling look inside the hospital situations not only in South Dakota but across the nation as the COVID-19 numbers continue to rise. "Over the past week, cases are on the rise in 48 states", Noem said.

Yes, Donald, but so did the 250 000 deaths, with that number rapidly rising. The state has a population of 884,000, which is roughly one-tenth the size of New York City.

Later Wednesday, state epidemiologist Josh Clayton sent an email to healthcare providers underlining that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends wearing masks and that "experimental and epidemiological data support community masking to reduce the spread" of the coronavirus.

"Across the country and around the globe, cases are increasing". "It's so sad to compare yourself to countries like that". The state health department reports 20 percent of hospital beds are now occupied with COVID-19 patients.

Among the tweets, Doering said, "These people really think this isn't going to happen to them".

Secretary of Health Kim Malsam-Rysdon said the pandemic has worsened staffing shortages at hospitals, but offered the development of a vaccine as a "bright spot on the horizon".
