Preparing for the Storm . . . Maybe

It appears in general that outside of certain hotspots, the world is doing pretty well in regards to the spread of COVID-19. I hope that continues, but it really is hard to predict what is going to happen. It still seems to be clear that the biggest risk factors in regards to mortality are age and pre-existing chronic medical conditions. The rest of us might get sick or not. Of course there are exceptions to all statistical rules, but if you are young, be comforted. If you are older (65 or above) be careful.

Because we want to be prepared for the worst, we have been meeting at the hospital twice per week to get ready for a massive influx of COVID-19 patients. Our spouses and children are working to create PPE’s in a small workshop at the local Bible college. They are making over a thousand masks, face shields, and gowns for the hospital staff to wear. We have separated a portion of the hospital to serve as a COVID emergency room and ward. We are training the staff in donning and duffing of PPEs, and we are educating our interns on the true statistics of the illness to try and alleviate some fears.

We are doing our best to be ready.


At the end of the day, a few continue to work long hours preparing PPEs
