Seattle gives back its army hospital so it can go to a hard-hit state

The 250-bed army hospital that hundreds of troops built inside a Seattle convention center last week will be dismantled and redeployed to a state facing a more difficult battle against the coronavirus. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said Wednesday that the facility is no longer needed as hospitals seem to have brought the outbreak under control and social distancing has slowed the spread of the virus.

This is good, if Seattle (one of the harder hit areas) is starting to turn down medical aid it’s a hopeful sign that we might just be on the latter half of this.

Here in Seattle, only the transplants catch the virus. Us natives were already practicing social distancing, it's called the freeze. If you weren't born in Washington, we don't want to know you, and we wonder when you plan on going home. Might as well go home today.

It is a pity that there is no strong administrational oversight to prevent cock-ups like this happening. Terrible waste of resources in a time of national emergency.
