    <p>L'état d'urgence local a été déclaré jeudi à Cullman, en Alabama, alors que le surpeuplement des hôpitaux et des salles d'urgence, la pénurie de lits et de main-d'œuvre et une crise d'ambulance mettaient à rude épreuve son système de santé.

Two days later, former President Donald Trump held a “Save America” rally that drew thousands of unmasked participants into the city.

As the number of coronavirus cases increases rapidly and there are no longer intensive care beds available in Alabama, the host city of Cullman declared a state of emergency related to COVID-19 two days before the Trump rally. According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, 67.5% of the state’s population has not been fully immunized.

After being introduced by George C. Scott’s famous ‘Patton’ and ‘God bless the United States’ speech, Trump addressed a crowd of thousands at York Family Farms on common topics like Russia , immigration, the “radical left” and COVID-19, which he continues to call the “Chinese virus”.

Attendees, many of whom donned Trump or red, white and blue memorabilia, chanted “USA! And “We want Trump!” “

Cases in Cullman County, which includes the city of Cullman, are extremely high, with a 218% increase in hospitalizations in the past two weeks, according to data from the New York Times.

Nesha Donaldson, director of operations at Cullman Regional Medical Center, called on the city to provide additional resources, such as EMT services, at the rally to reduce potential additional pressure on the hospital.

An Aug. 18 update from Cullman Regional said he is currently treating 53 patients for COVID, 12 of whom are on ventilators.

Alabama Hospital Association president Donald Williamson said in an interview with WSFA 12 News on Tuesday that the state was running out of intensive care unit beds.
