Georgia's hardest-hit hospital says their intensive care units are filled with 'critically ill' coronavirus patients

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/26/us/southwest-georgia-icu-units-full/index.html

A southwest Georgia hospital system that's reporting about a fourth of the state's coronavirus deaths now says one hospital has reached capacity in three ICU units.
The three intensive care units within the system's hardest-hit hospital in Albany are filled with "critically ill Covid-19 patients," Phoebe Putney Health System said in a news release Wednesday. A fourth ICU was previously opened to care for patients not infected with the virus.
The system has reported 12 deaths. At least 47 people have died in the state.

"As this public health crisis in southwest Georgia gets more severe, we have been reaching out to other hospitals in our part of the state," the system's CEO, Scott Steiner, said. "I am pleased that every one of our regional partners we spoke to in the last 24 hours agreed to assist by accepting patient transfers from us."

Inside Albany's Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital, 35 patients have tested positive. About 90 are awaiting test results.

That county went for Clinton like a number of SW Georgia counties.  I wonder what they numbers will be in the North Georgia mountains.  That is really Trump country in Georgia.

Flu hits rural Georgia hard, data shows. Will COVID-19 do the same?

By Chris Joyner and John Perry, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Years of seasonal flu data in Georgia tell a clear story: the state’s most rural residents, who tend to be poorer, older, less educated and farther from health care, die at higher rates than those living in urban centers such as metro Atlanta.

Experts are unsure if the same will hold true for COVID-19.Many of the risk factors that put rural Georgians at greater risk for flu also hold true for COVID-19, which is more deadly for older people and those with underlying health problems. But COVID-19 flourishes in densely populated areas. Those in rural areas may benefit from their isolation.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
