With the Covid Strain Mississippi Hospital System Could Collapse

As the delta variety sparks another increase in cases across the United States, the news about the coronavirus is coming fast and furious. Arkansas reached a new high for Hospital, while citizens in one Florida county are being urged to “consider other choices” before using 911. If the current trend continues, Mississippi’s Hospital system might collapse in five to ten days, according to health officials.

Current vaccines protect against serious disease, Hospital, and death, and vaccine standards and guidelines are being strengthened across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, for example, is now pushing all pregnant women to get vaccinated. The FDA could make a decision this week on whether to extend its emergency use authorization to booster doses for immunocompromised persons, according to Dr. Anthony Fauci of NPR’s Morning Edition.

Vaccinations are increasingly required in more places, and those who do not get the shot face penalties. The Defense Department is pushing to make vaccines mandatory for military members, and the Department of Health and Human Services is demanding them for its tens of thousands of health-care professionals. Furthermore, some minor colleges have announced that unvaccinated students would be charged an additional fee.

Because each state has its own set of rules and restrictions, the fight to regulate COVID-19 looks a little different depending on where you reside. California just became the first state to mandate that all K-12 public and private school teachers and employees be vaccinated or undergo weekly coronavirus testing. The move impacts 300,000 teachers and tens of thousands of school workers, such as bus drivers and custodians, as KQED’s Julia McEvoy reported on Morning Edition.
