Grand Island, Nebraska, is witnessing quite a big problem because the recent report from Public Hospital shows that the number of cases of coronavirus has increased. Health officials from this city said since many people are getting ill because of the coronavirus, they are witnessing a spike in patients. While speaking about the current condition in City Health, director Teresa Anderson said they have no room for error, and everyone should do their required duty. Number of patients who have been put on ventilators are increasing, and hospitals are running out of ventilators for seriously ill patients.
Forty-eight patients have been put on respirators, and more than 118 cases have been registered in the Intensive Care Unit, where they are getting necessary treatment from doctors. Doctors said that they are witnessing many people who have to put on ventilators, but they are lacking this facility, which is creating a big problem.
Health officials are saying that they want to create more rooms for the upcoming patients because they think the numbers will increase in the next few days, and they have to prepare for it. Hospital business has gone down by more than 30%, which is also affecting the functionality of various hospitals. The number of patients who are on a ventilator requires unique health treatments. Hospital authorities don’t want to take any risk and expect many patients will need a ventilator in upcoming days.
Even though all cases in Grand Island city are less as compared to other Metropolitan cities, doctors are taking care of it neatly. The peak is coming, and it will happen in the next 12 weeks, and they have already been preparing for this situation. They can’t say the exact number of patients will be admitted, the peak is inevitable, and people are requested to follow the required precautions.
