Hospitals Are Brimming with Patients & Running Out of Rooms!
In the United States, the main concern is related to occupancy in hospitals. Due to increasing COVID-19 cases, more and more patients are getting hospitalized, which is causing lacking space in the ICU rooms for the upcoming patients. Due to the patients finding rooms rarely in hospitals, more death cases are occurring. California, on Wednesday, recorded the highest ICU admission, as well as hospitalizations. California is facing a huge problem because only 1500 ICU beds are available, and patients are increasing like a forest fire. Due to ICUs remaining full, it is getting difficult for hospitals to offer efficient services.
The U.S. turns to be the worst-affected nation by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now it is in the final stage of approving minimum of two vaccines (one by Moderna and another by Pfizer & BioNTech). According to FDA, during an internal assessment on Tuesday, the Pfizer vaccine turned to be 95% effective while measured across different groups (elderly and young).
