It’s really interesting to me. The news really seems to be sure that our hospitals are at maxed capacity in the Medical Center. My wife works not in the med center, but in a high risk, lower income area and they are “pushed a little”, but by no means doom and gloom. She gets these updates from the HCA CEO every few days and the update last night showed a graph detailing all the covid cases since the start of this thing at the 4 “Gulf Coast” hospitals. We’re definitely in an uptick, but what I’m being told (again…isolated to these four hospitals) is that there are more people, but the ones who are vaccinated recover easy and in most cases are sent home.
The ones who struggle are not vaccinated and have underlying issues…same as before. I’m not saying the news is completely full of it, but feels definitely like fear mongering a little bit. That said, I’m definitely team “get the shot”.
