It is most definitely a heart-warming story about the recovery of a mountain hiker on Mount Ranier in Washington state that’s making headline news today. However, I have to seriously question the priority of health officials in that case. Is this “story” even true, or is it “fake news” designed with the intent to give readers a “warm, fuzzy” ray of sunshine during these surrealistically dismal times?
Is it prudent to spend 45 minutes by much needed medical personnel to resurrect a thrill-seeking mountain climber from the dead? Meanwhile, people are dying by the thousands each and every day because of the coronavirus. What kind of “triage” is being practiced there?
