Texas Grim Reaper Ken Paxton Wants to Stop Judge From Saving Lives
Attorney General Ken Paxton is trying to lay down the law in virus-ravaged El Paso—no matter the cost.
The emergency dispatchers in El Paso, Texas, were assigning ambulances on one COVID-19 call after another.
“Respond to a sick patient, a COVID patient… Difficulty breathing, COVID… Confirming it is a COVID patient… Be advised positive COVID… COVID patient getting CPR… This is going to be a positive COVID situation… Patient was at local care physician when patient fainted, COVID symptoms…”
In among those calls, the operators updated the status of area hospitals in a county where hospitalizations had increased by more than 350 percent over the past month, to the point where critically ill patients were being airlifted to other cities in Texas.
