in the state, she said, and 88 percent of Covid patients who are on a ventilator are unvaccinated. More than 70 percent Michiganders age 16 and older have had at least one shot of a Covid vaccine, she said.Dr. Matthew Sims, a physician and director of infectious disease research at Beaumont Health, the state's largest health care system, said"almost all" the Covid patients coming in are unvaccinated.
Roughly 600 patients are sickened with Covid across the system as of Tuesday, he said, noting the staff is exhausted."We've been doing this for so long," he said."It does get tiring to the nurses, the doctors, everybody when we see this huge number of patients that are all coming in that are not vaccinated."
Dec. 7, 202103:47He said the system's network of hospitals and outpatient sites is prepared for a potential surge in patients this winter; they've gathered enough personal protective equipment and have mandated Covid vaccinations for the entire staff. headtopics.com
It’s still unclear whether the heavily mutated omicron variant will exacerbate the situation seen at hospitals over the colder months, experts say, thoughearly reports suggest the new strain may cause milder symptoms.Sims said he is concerned about omicron"and whether it is going to take over and make things worse." It's some 50 mutations"is scary," he said, but he added that scientists and the public still need to wait for more data.

Dr. Bruce Vanderhoff, director of Ohio's Department of Health,said during a news conferencethat cases aren’t occurring evenly among age groups.Young people, particularly those between the ages of 23 and 49, have a case rate that's 25 percent higher than the statewide average, he said.
As in Michigan, the vast majority of hospitalized patients in Ohio are unvaccinated, Vanderhoff said.Nov. 23, 202101:44State officials continue to urge people to get vaccinated. Doing so would help hospitals in the state as they face staffing challenges. headtopics.com
"Almost every hospital really doesn't have the elasticity that maybe we had this time last year to really expand capacity on a short-term notice when there's a flood or surge in local patients," Dr. Andy Thomas, with Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center, said at the same briefing."If these trends continue through the month of December into January, we will be at a point where the hospitals in Ohio will not be able to take care of all the patients we need to take care of."
Last week, in the state of New York, home to the fifth largest share of new hospitalizations, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that hospitals with less than 10 percent capacity must stop doing elective surgeries until at least Jan. 15, 2020.There are around 50 hospitals that meet that criteria, the vast majority of which are upstate, Hochul

All the amazing doctors and nurses uknhsworker This is an OUTRAGE! It’s suppose to be Florida! If it’s not DeSantis screwing up why are you publishing this!!! 😂🤣😂 Way to go, Missouri, you made the list. As referenced in Ozark, ‘hillbillies’ are the ones not vaccinated here. Damn you Desantis!! What more proof is needed that vaccines help ?
This administration and Faucci have to go this is ridiculous how they continue to instill fear . That’s why there are the doctors that are prescribing ivermectin in the hopes that they don’t get fired but atleast they are saving lives That’s funny those states have the highest percent of the people vaccinated especially New York but yet covid is on the rise just more proof of how vaccines don’t work . And they won’t give them the therapeutics to help them. Ivermectin just a thought
All those states with cold weather conditions… Are media outlets still blaming governors for Covid outbreaks, or is that only if it’s Florida? Libtard mask up shut down states gonna feel COVID for far longer than no mask states just makes total common sense Interesting how Texas, Oklahoma,Tennessee and Flordia are not even in the top 20 on their list

It won’t prevent you from catching Covid, spreading Covid or dying from Covid. The dangerous side effects of the vax range from myocarditis to Bell’s Palsy. Fight Covid fascism, do not comply.
And the unvaccinated account for 88% or more of this surge. How blind are those that will not see. Let me guess, mostly Republican states ?
Runny-nosed hippos test positive for Covid-19 in BelgiumTwo hippos at a zoo in Antwerp, Belgium, have tested positive for Covid-19, in what is believed to be the first such infection reported in the species.

I will invite my friends and family into your company Dennismayson9 you are the best💯🤞 Interesting because they apparently were having trouble getting the strain circulating in humans to infect any animal species…. A mutating virus that can be transmitted from human to animal and animal to human. This will NEVER be controlled, not by masks, not by a vaccine. This is here to stay, go live your life.
