Texas requests five mortuary trailers during Covid-19 surge
Texas is seeing a surge in Covid-19 cases and, along with Florida, leads the nation in pediatric hospitalizations.


512

Texas had the most pediatric hospitalizations in the nation, at 239, according to the latest data released Monday by the US Department of Health and Human Services.

Five mortuary trailers have been requested by the health services department in Texas, which is seeing a surge in Covid-19 cases and, along with Florida, leads the nation in pediatric hospitalizations.

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) submitted a request for the trailers.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has opposed mask mandates and issued an executive order banning school districts from requiring masks, which has caused backlash from educators and local leaders.

The state had 53,100 fatalities as of Monday.

Since the start of the covid pandemic.   I need to ask a question here, does Texas order these morgue trailers  every year due to increased death rates due to heat related causes?  Looking at the death rate this year from covid in Texas it doesn't seem to be the reason for ordering the trailers.

This is like in California last year when they were busy outfitting parking garages for a surge in covid patients, yet I never heard if they filled them or if they were even used, but it was a big story of how bad it was getting.

I doubt the heat led to many of these 53,100 fatalities as of Monday - that's just nonsense.

53,100 fatalities from the start of the pandemic from covid up until Monday, to know this you must read the article and research what that number was since the article doesn't actually tell you what that number means, but it was used for it's shock value.

Seems you are using "as of Monday" as meaning since Monday, if this is the case then you are saying that we have a new Texas variant and it seems to have a 200% fatality rate since there are now more deaths from covid in Texas than there are cases of covid since Monday.  Is that nonsense?

Everything you're saying is nonsense - trying to tie heat related deaths to the thousands upon thousands upon thousands of Co-Vid deaths.

So are they talking about covid deaths or all deaths?

No, I'm tying the morgue trailers to the other causes of deaths in Texas and also due to covid.

Just curious-- why you actually believe the death rate from Covid in Texas is so insignificant? jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif

  • Texas had the most pediatric hospitalizations in the nation
  • Five mortuary trailers have been requested by the health services department in Texas, which is seeing a surge in Covid-19 cases and, along with Florida, leads the nation in pediatric hospitalizations.

Hmmm... may I ask: where, exactly  do you get your news?

(Perhaps there are better news sources to be had??? jrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gifjrSmiley_26_smiley_image.gif )

170 bodies each

Kind of measures Abbott's expectations doesn't it?

I imagine that number assumes all the bodies will be adults(?).

But now with the Delta variant it seems that there will be many more deaths among children...even some fairly young kids.

That's all they need-- for now .

(At the rate they're going,I imagine they will be needing more in the very near future jrSmiley_5_smiley_image.png )

I wonder if after the trailers arrive Abbott will claim that they never ordered them, like they claimed they never ordered them after the 300 ventilators arrived.

Eh...it musta been the gremlins.........  jrSmiley_80_smiley_image.gif

Now that Gov. Abbott has tested positive for Covid, maybe he'll change his stance and start giving a shit about the health of the people here in Texas.  On the other hand, maybe not.  Caring about us isn't exactly his style...as he has demonstrated time and time and time and time and time and time again.

Well...after all, Abbott IS a Trumps ass kisser and worshiper, so his not caring about the health and lives of anyone else, just his own, is in keeping with Trumps own belief and mantra.
