The number of new coronavirus cases in this country is at an all-time high, with 145,000 reported yesterday. Hospitalizations are also at their highest right now, pushing some healthcare facilities to the limit.
In Illinois, a group of doctors warned the governor they’d have to begin rationing care and decide who to treat and who to send home. Utah is seeing similar issues.
Other states – Missouri, Ohio, and South Dakota – also face hospital capacity and staffing shortages.
