I agree. It ain't volunteer work. And who wants healthy patients? The system wants more sick than healthy people. That's a big part of the reason why advice on cholesterol and fat intake is embraced by doctors, big pharma, and blood labs.
2. A person's social status (wealth, race, prominence, sexual orientation, gender identity) decisively determines the level of care they receive, and how much care they receive.

We're gonna learn real soon. (I am aware that I myself have little or no social "value" in the scheme of things. As a gay, average-income, mixed-race man over 50, my coronavirus survival probability where patients > available medical resources, is close to zero.)
