Hospitals in Idaho, Pennsylvania, Texas Overwhelmed by Covid-19 patients#FearPorn #Covid19 #Hoax #ICU #ID #PA #TX #FakeNews #MSM #Hospital #USA #ICU
That's a scary headline. It's also a false one. We have data on this (and so would they if they bothered to get any)
Idaho: (as of 12/4) 57% of inpatient beds used, 14.6% covid. 74% overall ICU. 90% of inpatient beds and ICU is normal. even 100% ICU is normal. 57% is staggeringly low, like OMG we're all going out of business low. Calling that overwhelmed is outlandish. ICU of 74% is also low.
Even 100% ICU is not "full", since all can flex to 125% - it's federal mandate.
Most ICU's can flex to 150-200% - they just do not leave the beds staffed when they are not needed. it's too expensive.
