With skyrocketing coronavirus hospitalizations in several states…

Hard-hit counties in Arizona and Texas are preparing for the worst by bringing in refrigerated trucks as morgues fill up.

The US coronavirus outbreak hit nearly 3.5 million total infections Thursday morning and more than 137,000 reported deaths.

Thirty-nine states reported an increase in the number of new cases from the week before.

California, Florida, Arizona and Texas have become the states to watch as surging coronavirus cases lead to a shortage of hospital beds.

Arizona and Texas portable coolers

In Arizona’s Maricopa County, which has the most Covid-19 cases in the state, the medical examiner’s office has ordered four portable coolers with additional ones expected in the coming days, said Fields Moseley, the county spokesman.

The medical examiner’s office morgue had a total of 156 deceased people – with a surge capacity of just over 200, Moseley said Wednesday.

It is unclear how many of the deaths are related to the coronavirus – the county has said fatalities go up in the summer due to the heat.

Two counties in Texas – Cameron and Hidalgo – are sharing a large refrigerated trailer to store bodies of coronavirus patients because of a lack of space at the morgues.

San Antonio officials have also said they’re requesting refrigerated trucks. “I’m pleading with everybody in our neck of the woods, help us do your part, people’s lives are at stake – not just the people getting sick, but doctors, nurses working to the bone, EMS personnel, transporting people,” Cameron County Judge Eddie Treviño Jr. told KVEO.

This reminds me of a morgue in New York piling up bodies in trucks at the beginning of the pandemic.

Officials look for options as hospitals fill up

As infections go up, officials nationwide are rushing to issue restrictions all over again.

Georgia

Gov. Brian Kemp extended Georgia’s emergency coronavirus restrictions and said while people are “strongly encouraged” to wear face coverings – they’re not required.

The order, which expires July 31, limits public gatherings to 50 people and mandates social distancing. But his order also prevents local governments from implementing stricter rules than the state’s – including requiring face masks.

The state reported 417 additional hospitalizations, nearly double Tuesday’s total, and is turning the Georgia World Congress Center, a large convention venue in downtown Atlanta, into a potential overflow hospital

California

California, the country’s most populous state, set two more records Wednesday with highs for hospitalizations and intensive care unit admissions.

The state announced 11,126 new cases, with a total of 6,786 Covid-19 positive hospital patients and 1,907 patients in the ICU.

And in Los Angeles County, the public health director warned another stay-at-home order is likely

We can’t take anything off the table – there’s absolutely no certainty of what exactly is going to happen next,” Dr. Barbara Ferrer said.

California met its goal to have 10,000 contact tracers statewide by July 1, but Health and Human Services Agency Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly said it’s not enough to handle the onslaught of coronavirus cases. “We did not build the first contact tracing program on this level of transmission,” Ghaly said.

Florida

Florida reported 301,810 positive cases statewide Wednesday with 19,334 people hospitalized.

More than 50 hospitals have reached ICU capacity and show zero beds available, according to according to data released by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). Eight of those hospitals are in Miami-Dade County.

Texas and Arizona

In South Texas, hospitals in Laredo are full and the federal government is converting a hotel into a health care facility.

Arizona health officials announced they’re bringing nearly 600 critical care and medical-surgical nurses from out of state to help.

Covid-19 hospitalizations in Arizona have increased with hospitals reporting nearly 3,500 inpatients and more than 900 patients in their intensive care units,” the Arizona Department of Health Services said in a statement.

No end in sight

Public health experts say the end of the pandemic remains out of sight, and several states took steps to mandate the wearing of masks.

Alabama and Montana have said they are now required in public. In Montana, face coverings are mandatory in certain indoor group settings where more than 50 people gather and social distancing is not possible.

More than 30 states now have mandates on face coverings in public.

And in Oklahoma, Gov. Kevin Stitt said he’s tested positive for Covid-19 the same day the state reported a record high number of new cases. There were 22,813 total cases in the state, up 1,075 from Tuesday, health officials said. At least 561 people are hospitalized due to the virus.Despite his diagnosis, Stitt said he opposes a statewide face mask law, partly because it would be difficult to enforce. Chairs sit stacked inside a closed bar in Austin, Texas.

Higher death toll expected

Thousands more Americans will die from the virus before a vaccine is developed, an influential model says.

The model from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington is projecting 224,000 people will die from the virus by November 1 – an increase of almost 16,000 from the week before.

That jump is due to skyrocketing cases around the country, particularly in Florida, Texas, Arizona, California, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah.

It is terrifying what people in the U.S. are going through and will be forced to go through. I am with you all my friends!

  1. HAHAHAHA you’ve failed the IQ test it seems. Fear mongering – the survival rate in the STATES alone is 99.6 % so stop with that fucked up MSM bullshit.

  2. The title is more than misleading: it’s a lie.

    “The medical examiner’s office morgue had a total of 156 deceased people – with a surge capacity of just over 200, Moseley said Wednesday.

    It is unclear how many of the deaths are related to the coronavirus – the county has said fatalities go up in the summer due to the heat.”

    CBS, Fox News are among the major networks attempting to induce fear and panic:

    “We had 14 die in the hospitals this weekend — plus, other non COVID patients, of course, are dying../There’s nowhere to put them.” (source)

    “COVID-19 isn’t completely responsible for the total autopsy backlog at the ME’s office. Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price says some of the murders are drug-related. Others have been domestic. All of them have been stressing cadaver capacity….Some people are dying without ever getting to a hospital, Some of which are COVID related…” (source)

    What these articles all have in common are the mobile refrigerated trucks front and center, with COVID-19 in the title.

  3. How can anyone believe such reporting? Far, far too many non-covid deaths are being reported as covid. No report on covid deaths can be believed until news services, medical services, etc start reporting accurate numbers. Inflating the numbers is only a fearmongering tactic.

  4. I have predicted this is stage 1 and stage 2 and 3 and 4 events 201? We all are more mess indeed. Unemployment in USA is 78 Millions those who are unemployed and not taking benefits? The new world order of Bill gates and Donald Trump are same he scammed us from day 1 ? No walls yet and he wants only his empire strike back? Many New World Order will come and go and only one new world order will stay based on humanity , based on Venus Project and based on spirtuality. Less than all new world orders will be crashed by humanity. I predict October Suprise is Iran war 65 percent and 35 percent China War? More false flags operations will be coming on all over world. More of Iran will be soon exploded by Israelis from space wars is reality?
