Yes, this article is two years old. That is sort of my point.

And there are a lot more gems in it than what I excerpted.

Archive offline before this disappears.

Hmm. Well, as we all know, you are not supposed to use the tents (or ships or convention centers).
Send them to nursing homes instead.

Wow, 2-1/2 years ago and I never heard this: California, which has been particularly hard hit by this season’s flu, several hospitals have set up large “surge tents” outside their emergency departments to accommodate and treat flu patients."

And I live in California. I had no idea. I wonder how we coped. I must be forgetting that I social-distanced, didn't get a haircut for four months, and wore a face mask all the time.

Good night Freepers. Bedtime for me- 10:30 pm.

Insomniacs and those for whom it is only 7:30—perhaps you can find a similar article to post about Europe’s experience with flu two years ago (or some other past time frame for that matter).

My practice was just overwhelmed with flu patients that year. We saw something like 5 times more than our usual number of cases.

I remember how bad that flu season was and remember the news stories. I got my first ever flu shot in January of 2018.

Useful archive links:

http://archive.today/4jyhG

https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://time.com/5107984/hospitals-handling-burden-flu-patients/

If it’s really important, saving locally is a good idea for sure. But familiarity with both of these archive sites is also a good idea.

But it’s the covid you silly person. It is so powerful it can even travel backwards in time and overwhelm the healthcare system in previous years too! We need to lockdown for at least a decade!!! maybe more!!!!
