CNN: People with coronavirus are crossing the US-Mexico border for medical care
What do you think?
United States leads the world with over 2.59 Million cases and over 128,000 deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic -- and we are still in the first wave. Hospitals are being overwhelmed and capacities are being reached. Now, Americans are fleeing to the Southern Border for care:
Coronavirus patients are showing up in emergency rooms after calling 911 from the US-Mexico border.
"They'll literally come to the border and call an ambulance," says Van Gorder, president and CEO of Scripps Health, a hospital system in southern California.
As Mexico is already overwhelmed by the impacts of COVID-19, they're saying that Americans are adding gas to the fire:
"We've got this continual flow of Covid coming across the border in the form of US citizens that carry and continue to escalate and fuel the Covid pressures that we see," Duncan said.
At the end of the day, Americans are looking for help. As hospitals are overwhelmed, it's difficult to get the care Americans deserve. This shows how even in times where forces are aiming to divide, there is undoubtedly a connection between us:
"There just is not a wall for viruses at the border," says Josiah Heyman, director of the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies at the University of Texas at El Paso. "The wall is an illusion, because the two sides are really woven together."
