The ICU bedside units used for Covid-19 patients in Montana, as well as neighboring Idaho Wyoming, are some of the highest in the country, HHS data showed.
“Unfortunately, today I came to tell you that we have lost the war. This Covid is sitting here,” Dr. Steven Nemerson, chief of the clinic in Saint Alphonsus Health System in Boise, Idaho, said Wednesday. “And the reason we live is that we can’t inject enough people to fully eradicate this disease.”
The date the first drug was released last December was equivalent to the D-Day epidemic, Nemerson said, and Covid-19 will be a recurring problem for years to come because the US has failed to meet the challenge.
“There are episodes, at least a year, which we have to deal with,” Nemerson said Tuesday during a meeting with the Department of Health and Welfare.
Hospitals in Saint Alphonsus have declined recently, said Nemerson, but this is doing little more than give health care providers the opportunity to come and enjoy the fresh air, especially as staff facing hostility from other Covid-19 patients and families.
“None of us have superhuman strength, and we all have a limit to the amount of work we can do, and the amount of stress and anxiety we can handle,” he said, “and that is compounded by the fact that” more people are coming to our hospitals asking what we do. “
In some parts of the world, certain hospitals are relatively narrow. Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, New Mexico and Texas have 15% or less of their ICU supplies available to Covid-19 and non-Covid-19 patients, according to HHS data.
Staying with safety rules
At Boeing, with most of its 140 employees working on the state side, the air force has announced that its US employees will be required to provide proof of vaccination or “legal accommodation” by December 8.

As many as 6,000 warnings have been issued, according to NYC Small Businesses Services commissioner Jonnel Doris, however de Blasio said only 15 businesses following the warning are still found violating and being fined.
“For all the small business owners, for all the employees who did this work: Thank you for the job,” de Blasio said.
The city’s defense level has increased by 9% since the city’s approval began, he said.
As for civil servants in some cities, about 812 Boston city workers are not yet complying with Covid-19 regulations, down from the 1,400 reported last week, according to the office of Mayor Kim Janey. These employees were placed on unpaid leave.
The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second largest in the country, has pushed back the deadline for teachers and staff to be vaccinated against Covid-19 by Friday, according to a district spokesman.
Boosters went higher than the original designs, data show
While health care providers are working to get as many initial doses in the hands of Americans as possible, federal health data shows that the level of promotion being offered is increasing at first for inoculations.
A preliminary study by the National Institutes of Health study, which has not yet been evaluated or published, suggests that the combination of additives in a different combination between the three drugs produced a strong immune response.
“It’s very important to take two things. One is that all nine combinations are safe, as there are no new ones or side effects, so all of these seem to be safe,” CNN medical examiner and emergency physician Dr. Leana Wen told CNN on Wednesday.
“The second major drawback is that all of these combinations have resulted in a very strong, strong response.
