COVID news live: UK ‘sees first idea of ​​what life is like with COVID’ – as cost of PCR testing for travel falls


The worsening situation in hospitals in the United States
Many Americans are still hesitant to get vaccinated against COVID, which is having devastating effects on health systems. Here is the situation across the country …

Alabama

A state of emergency was declared as the state tied a record for available intensive care unit beds with just 39 vacant beds statewide.

Of Alabama’s 1,567 intensive care beds, 689 are filled with COVID patients.

Hawaii

Hospitals are making overflow plans after the state recorded its highest daily jump in cases to 1,170 yesterday.

The vast majority of cases involve unvaccinated people and the state governor has warned hospitals are filling up.

“They’re dealing with younger and younger people,” Governor David Ige said. “Yesterday, tragically, we reported the death of a man in his thirties. “

Oregon

Up to 1,500 National Guard soldiers are deployed to state hospitals to support healthcare workers and assist with testing, among other things.

Some 733 people are hospitalized with coronavirus in Oregon and hospitals have warned they are near full capacity.

Utah

The situation is even worse in Utah, where some hospitals are already beyond their capacity.

The state’s largest healthcare system yesterday said intensive care units were at 102% of capacity, with around 90% of hospitalized COVID patients unvaccinated.

Tennessee

Hospitals have started to run out of beds, with Vanderbilt University Medical Center saying its adult hospital and emergency department are “completely full.”

The hospital now limits elective procedures and denies transfer requests from many hospitals.
