Delta variant alert in the USA! Intensive care wards are full in states with low immunization rates

class = “cf”>

One in four hospitals in the southern states reported that intensive care units were over 95% full, according to data compiled by The New York Times. In June, when the number of Kovid-19 cases was the lowest in the country, it was reported that the intensive care unit at one of the 10 hospitals was full to a “dangerous” level.

According to data from the US Department of Health, while all intensive care units in the state of Alabama were full last week, dozens of patients could not find beds. The Alabama Hospitals Association has announced that patients who need intensive care units are kept in waiting rooms or in ambulances.

GREAT INCREASE IN LOW IMMUNIZATION STATES

The number of hospitals in Texas, which announced that 95% of intensive care units are in service, rose from 69 in June to 169 last week. It is reported that only 700 intensive care beds remain in the state.

In the city of Houston, where hospitals pitched tents to make room for patients last month, the number of patients was said to have increased by 40% last week from the previous month.

In the state of Florida, 24 hospitals had more patients than their intensive care capacity last week.

Apart from Kovid-19, it was reported that critically ill patients could not find intensive care beds.

Experts point out that states with full intensive care capacities are also the states with the lowest vaccination rates.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that those who are not vaccinated have a 4.5 times higher risk of contracting Kovid-19, a 10 times greater risk of hospitalization high and an 11 times higher risk of death than those who are not vaccinated.
