Some hospitals ate already running out and some ate going to run out by April. And some ate looking into reusing PPEs.
That the fed govt will not help to mitigate pricing and stock is shameful.

Just look at Spain and Italy - major fatalities and the numbers still rising because they did not act soon enough to distance people. We can recover financially. We can loan businesses money or support them with grants. You can't reverse the permanent lung damage some suffer from this virus or bring back lost family members.
