My wife and I are both ER nurses, she is in a large hospital, I am in a microhospital. Both in OKC. Census is down, people seem to be staying away. Homeless population unaware of what's going on, business as usual for them. Ambulances coming to my hospital more regularly in an attempt to keep the BS away from larger hospitals when the corona hits the fan. Projecting mid to late April for drastic increase in cases. Our hosp has one vent. 2 nurses, one doc, 2 techs. ventilated patient basically brings us to a standstill if we can't offload them.
Wife's hospital moved oncology unit to a separate building. They also magically found 40% more capacity, which surprised me that they could never do that during "hold season" when the ER is 75% full of patients with no bed upstairs to go to. She has much better PPE than I do. Good since she is asthmatic.
Brother is ortho surgeon in central texas. Stopped all elective surgeries, cut 50% staff.
Parents are in Jacksonville, FL. Mom is veterinarian, still seeing patients at 2 clinics. She's got 41 years of practice, and feels the need to keep teaching and mentoring the baby vets. I'm worried it's going to hit her or my dad hard. He's got COPD, multiple MIs.
Wife's dad lost job due to economy. OK is oil country. No new oil in OK under $45/barrel, we were in the mid $20s and his employer cut him loose from looking for wells. 35 year career gone, now he's looking to buy a forestry mulcher and go clear food plots for deer leases to stay busy.
I have a feeling there will be lots of land for sale here for cheap soon.
