Puerto Rico is still suffering after hurricane Maria. The disaster medical teams aren’t even organized meanwhile there seems to be disasters popping up everywhere often. A Doctor, Doctor Khanna quit the Puerto Rico response team called NDMS, the National Disaster Medical System, after witnessing the Trump government’s mismanagement of the situation. She has been doing disaster relief missions for the past 20 years and is appalled by what nonsense is going on with this failed effort. There was a Spa Day ORGANIZED by Federal staff for themselves in the middle of the disaster. They used the triage tents that should be used for victims to house spa treatments. They brought in people to give themselves nail treatments and pedicures.
People are now dying in Puerto Rico from treatable bacterial infections because of the lack of proper care. Desperate people have been drinking from polluted creeks and streams for water. The huge Naval Hospital Ship is docked in Puerto Rico but is not letting people on board to treat them. The ship has 800 beds and modern equipment to treat just about any illness. Three weeks after the disaster there is only 7 patients on board? Why?
There are 800 medical staff people on board. The ship is even capable to manufacture drinking water. Why isn’t that being distributed? This is an organizational failure not that the storm is too big a failure anymore. The storm is no longer killing Americans. The Federal response to the storm is now killing Americans.
