People with little chance of survival are reportedly a waste of oxygen, at least according to an order given out by those in charge of Los Angeles County paramedics.
The paramedics have reportedly been ordered to “conserve the use of oxygen” and not transport patients with “little chance of survival.”
The orders were released from the LA County EMS Agency, and comes as many in the locked-down state of California continue to get coronavirus, despite strict mask and lockdown laws.
According to the New York Post, EMS workers have been instructed to “perform resuscitation for at least 20 minutes” if a patient’s heart has stopped instead of taking them to a hospital.
California Governor Gavin Newsom threw fuel on the fire Monday, setting up a taxpayer-funded task force to “evaluate and upgrade outdated oxygen delivery systems” at six LA hospitals.
Around 6,000 people are being treated in LA at this time, clogging up hospitals and creating a crisis for medical staff.
