  1. Okay, now we are learning how this works.
    Working poor, Police, FD, EMT and most everyone else gets sent home to die.
    Upper class or just loaded with plastic..they get rooms.
    The lower class rich multimillionaire and such get a ventilator.

    The top of those get fancy hospital ships, equiped to handle any situation!

    Who gets the Dragon Crew ?
