Viruses and Parasites: Will New Jersey Recover?

Joshua A. Sotomayor-Einstein

By Joshua A. Sotomayor-Einstein

America will get through the Covidviral crisis. With the suspension of many bad regulations, some of which limited the supply of lifesaving medical supplies; the might of American industry producing vital medical equipment; the truckers driving long distances with few rest stops open; the farmers and farmhands keeping their fellow Americans in quarantine fed; and food store and pharmacy employees, forgoing the safety of their homes in heavily hit urban areas high in Covid cases, stocking the stores so that we can keep a bit of normalcy while we fight this unseen enemy; we will prevail. We will never forget and long remember the front-line troops of this war, the EMTs, doctors, and nurses working 12-plus hour shifts in environments none of us would want to.

But if we are to recover financially after we do so medically, now more than ever it is necessary for New Jersey’s economic future to reform the punitive system of public pilfering and overspending that even before the Covid epidemic kept our state’s economy from job generation and prosperity. America will recover from the onslaught of the Covidvirus, which has already taken the lives of too many as we flatten the curve, produce more lifesaving equipment, search for treatments, and heaven willing, develop a vaccine. But New Jersey will not recover economically, and its residents will not be able to rebuild financially until massive radical structural and systemic changes are implemented across the board.

Man, what a week! I feel like I’ve spent 200 hours on research, webinars and consults. This is truly an unprecedented event. The information is so fluid. I took some time to gather my thoughts and summarize what I’ve learned. It’s a long read but I hope that someone finds a useful piece of information. Have an awesome weekend and stay safe!

– The circumstances surrounding the current market conditions are, clearly, different from those that caused the financial and housing crisis in 2008. Although many agree that the housing market will experience a correction, very few are predicting that it will be impacted as severely as it was during the Great Recession.

In something resembling a military operation, the state is on high alert, scrambling to add critical-care beds and ready pop-up field hospitals

By Lilo H. Stainton, NJ Spotlight

After weeks of planning and preparations, New Jersey is now ready to activate its hospital-capacity contingency plans, as facilities in the northern counties are becoming increasingly overwhelmed by a surge of patients with COVID-19.

State officials are preparing to shift patients with more limited clinical needs from existing hospitals to the new “field medical station” set up by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the Meadowlands in order to make room for individuals who need critical care; the field station, in Secaucus, is expected to start accepting patients Monday. Newark’s University Hospital, the region’s Level 1 trauma center, will oversee the field station and transport the patients by ambulance or air, if needed.
