"So let's rid ourselves of the notion that children can't get COVID, or that they can't have serious cases of disease."In a news release issued on Friday, CHNOLA said that five children were being treated in its intensive care unit.

"The [Delta variant] is more easily spread than earlier variants of the virus that we've seen. It produces a more serious disease, so we're seeing sicker kids than we did before," Dr. Kline said at the time.Parents of children aged 12 and older are being urged to get them vaccinated. Children under the age of 12, however, are not eligible.

The press conference also saw medical workers reveal that hospitals have run out of capacity for patients suffering from COVID-19 and other serious conditions"We are no longer giving adequate care to these patients," said Dr. Catherine O'Neal, the chief medical officer at Our Lady of the Lake Medical Center in Baton Rouge, which is Louisiana's largest hospital.

"I have seen people in four-wheeler accidents and motorcycle accidents and farming accidents in the last two weeks, who sat in their ERs in their small towns."Those are my people. Those are your family members. And when they get maimed, they are not coming to a trauma center, because there are no more beds."

Dr. Phyllis Mason, the chief medical officer at Natchitoches Regional Medical Center, said:"We don't have the capacity to take care of the COVID patients and those other patients that are coming in for routine things, as well as serious things.

"And so it's really creating that bottleneck where we don't have the capacity on our medical floor to admit these patients even to a bed."Mason went on:"In addition to that, other hospitals are at capacity as well, and so we're having to hold patients in the emergency room because we can't transfer them anywhere."
