    Cynthia McKinney Michael Canney Kelly Benjamin Also, Cynthia and Michael obviously don’t know any respiratory therapists or nurses. I most certainly do. I live with a nurse! Here is a link to the interview that we broadcast on the radio program Spectrum 360 with Bill Hurley, a respiratory therapist that is a friend of ours that worked in New Orleans and then went to freaking Elmhurst (!!!) Hospital (!!!) in N. Y. C. during the height of the pandemic in New York (!!!) and saw about 40% of the intubated COVID-19 patients die in front of him (!!!). They took multiple truck loads of bodies out of the hospital to be buried on Long Island! He was so affected by the experience we have yet to be able to do another full length interview with him because he was so horrified, altho we have some details. So, listen and live!!
