  1. Like in a raid, if you lose the healer, you are screwed.

  2. While all deaths are traffic, some of these are really sad. You would hear about a guy who postponed his marriage to help out and then get sick.

  3. 2% of 3000 is 60, so I’m not sure what the point of this is?

    18 of 3000 front line staff is fucking amazing.

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-02-25/doctors-fighting-coronavirus-in-china-die-of-both-infection-and-fatigue) reduced by 94%. (I’m a bot)

    > Chinese health authorities and a team from the World Health Organization reported Monday evening that 3,387 health workers in China had been infected with COVID-19, more than 90% of whom were in Hubei, the outbreak's ground zero.

    > The Times counted at least 18 reported deaths of medical workers involved in the COVID-19 response as of Feb. 24, including nurses and doctors who died not from infection but from cardiac arrest or other ailments due to overwork and fatigue.

    > China has sent tens of thousands of medical workers from all over the country to bolster relief efforts in Wuhan.

  5. Force people to work six days straight without a break and that happens.

    It’s almost like…

    …they live in an authoritarian society….

  6. So they’re dying at a .6% rate. Much lower than total population.

  7. A mortality rate of **0.06%**

  8. That communist medical care is what people are rooting for to come to the US, Communist medicine failed miserably and now the world is in peril because of it…

    Communism…
