Registered Nurse Threatens to Deny Trump Supporter Coronavirus Treatment

“We have to decide who gets the vent.”

By Paul Joseph Watson – 8 April, 2020

A self-proclaimed registered nurse took to Twitter to suggest that she would not give someone emergency medical treatment for coronavirus if he was a Trump supporter.

The nurse was responding to a man called George S. Martan who posted a photo of himself wearing a face mask with ‘Trump 2020’ embroidered onto it.

“My wife sewed this face mask today to protect me from the Wuhan Virus and show support for President Trump,” commented the man.

“I’ll see you in ER. Please wear your mask so when we have to decide who gets the vent, it’ll be easier. Thanks,” responded Erika Waters, who describes herself as a registered nurse practitioner in her bio.

Waters has several anti-Trump hashtags in her bio, including #Resist, #GunReform and #BLM (Black Lives Matter).

She immediately faced the wrath of other Twitter users, including one who pointed out, “Medical homicide via negligence is the third leading cause of death in the United States.”

Others tagged the Florida medical board in an attempt to alert health authorities to the threat, with one tweeting, “Hope your medical malpractice carrier doesn’t see this.”

Waters later claimed that people were targeting the wrong nurse with the same name, remarking, “Your conduct is just as horrid as mine while you are doxxing every nurse named Erika Waters.”

She also subsequently apologized to Martan, tweeting, “I was not thinking, obviously, when I suggested you wear your mask into the ER where I work. I can’t explain why I tweeted that and hope you’ll forgive me but understand if you don’t.”

Nancy Pelosi Shuts Down Nadler’s Request to Flee DC over Coronavirus: ‘We’re the Captains of This Ship’

WASHINGTON, DC - DECEMBER 18: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) delivers remarks alongside Chairman Jerry Nadler, House Committee on the Judiciary (D-NY) and Chairman Eliot Engel, House Foreign Affairs Committee (D-NY), following the House of Representatives vote to impeach President Donald Trump on December 18, 2019 in Washington, …

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) on Tuesday said Democrats should flee Washington, D.C. as coronavirus continues to spread across the United States — A suggestion which was immediately shut down by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), according to a report.

Nadler made the remark in a closed-door caucus meeting on the deadly illness.

“We are the captains of the ship. We are the last to leave,” Pelosi responded, echoing a comment by Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ) moments earlier, The Hill reports.

Concerns about a possible coronavirus outbreak in the Capitol have grown as several lawmakers have self-quarantined after coming into contact with infected individuals.

Five Republicans, including President Donald Trump’s incoming chief of staff, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), have quarantined themselves are coming into contact with someone with the virus at the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

“While he’s experiencing zero symptoms, under doctors’ standard precautionary recommendations, he’ll remain at home until the 14-day period expires this Wednesday,” Ben Williamson, Meadows’ chief of staff, said in a statement.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who flew with President Trump aboard Air Force One on Monday, announced he would be taking two weeks of self-imposed isolation after coming into contact at CPAC with the person diagnosed with the virus.

News of the CPAC infection came days after the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) announced attendees to its policy conference last week may have come into contact with a person infected with the virus.

Since the coronavirus outbreak began in China in December, there have been more than 4,000 deaths and 113,000 cases worldwide, including 21 fatalities in the United States and more than 500 cases of the disease.

In a statement on Sunday, ACU said the Maryland Department of Health has screened thousands of employees at the resort, conference center and hotel where the conference was held and “not a single person has reported any unusual illness.”

“The Dept. of Health is not restricting the movement or interactions with others of those hotel employees,” it said in a statement, adding it is encouraging them to take their temperature twice daily and pay attention for symptoms.

The ACU said the infected attendee was receiving medical care in New Jersey and was quarantined.

In a separate situation, Rep. Julia Brownley (D-CA) said she has self-isolated herself after having come into contact last week in Washington, D.C., with a person who has tested positive for the virus.

Hungary Seals Border, Warns Migrant Invasion Could Bring Coronavirus

By Dan Lyman – 3/4/2020

Hungary has sealed its southern border, warning that many of the migrants currently attempting to break into Greece have traveled through Iran, which is in the midst of an explosive coronavirus outbreak.

Budapest announced that ‘transit zones’ along the border with Serbia, where migrants can apply for asylum and await decisions, will be closed indefinitely amid an effective invasion of Europe intiated by Turkey.

“We are suspending indefinitely new admissions of people into the transit zones,” said Chief Security Advisor György Bakondi. “We are seeing a certain link between the coronavirus and illegal immigrants.”

“For the safety of the 321 refugees in the transit zone, we are suspending the reception of additional refugees.”

Bakondi said there are currently around 10,000 migrants preparing to sail from Turkey to Greek islands and another 13,000 attempting to storm Greece’s land border – numbers which are reportedly increasing rapidly.

Many of the migrants hoping to reach Europe are from Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iran, and a large number of them could be carrying coronavirus contracted at home or during their journeys, Bakondi asserted.

“To the Hungarian people: We will protect our borders and our internal security,” he declared. “And a message to the migrants: No matter what their ‘organizers’ say, there is no way to Europe [through Hungary].”

“Hungary will not open up or let through anyone,” he continued. “The road does not lead here, it’s not worth trying this way.”

Hungary has no reported cases of coronavirus at the time of this writing.

Peru Cracks Down On Border Security After 15,000 Venezuelans Storm Border

Peru Border Security Venezuelans

By Tom Pappert

Peru is stepping up its border security and requirements for asylum after 15,000 Venezuelan refugees crossed its border over the weekend.

As the situation in the failed socialist state of Venezuela continues to decline, refugees from the nation are overwhelming other South American countries, with some 15,000 Venezuelans crossing the border in the last few days.

In response to the massive number of migrants, Peru will now require Venezuelans seeking entrance into the country to have a valid ID, passport, and visa to enter the country legally. According to Global Security, the country previously only required a form of valid ID for entry.

The Peruvian authorities have issued a statement that same day explaining that, due to this massive influx of refugees and migrants, a special contingency plan would be put in place, and Venezuelan refugees are now required to have a passport and a visa in order to enter the country. Until now, each Venezuelan was asked only for a basic document, such as an ID or an Andean Card to be allowed entry into Peru.

The total number of Venezuelan refugees and migrants in the country now stands at about 800,000. In total, to date, Peru has received over 280,000 asylum applications by Venezuelan citizens and given temporary residence permits to over 390,000.

The United Nations is sending aid to the border between Ecuador and Peru, as the majority of immigrants appear to be crossing through Ecuador and Colombia to gain entrance to the South American country. Some travel for as many as 40 days, by foot, to migrate to Peru.

Strangely, there appear to be no reports of the Peruvian government being called “racist” or “xenophobic” for its desire to curtail the mass migration from Venezuela.
