As coronavirus cases grow, hospitals adopt a system to rank patients for treatment
a point system calculating a patient’s likelihood to benefit from ICU care, based on two considerations: 1) saving the most lives and 2) saving the most life-years.
The lower the patient scores, the higher their prioritization for care. In the system’s eight-point scale, the first four points illustrate the patient’s likelihood to survive hospitalization, and the last four points assess whether, assuming they survive hospitalization, they have medical conditions associated with a life expectancy of less than one year or less than five years.

Two weeks later I asked him about his progress…
“Slow but steady” and attached this pic. Any guess, when he will read Ranking?
The contract for the the German translation right with Münchner Verlagsgruppe GmbH now has signed and countersigned contract.
Well, as my Publisher wrote: “These deals don’t really make any of us rich, but they disseminate your work throughout the world through our contacts at other foreign publishers.”
