马萨诸塞州奇科普(WWLP– Thanksgiving celebrations are being blamed for an increase in COVID-19 cases 和 hospitalizations across the state.

截至周一,马萨诸塞州的住院人数继续攀升,目前有超过1,500人在接受治疗,其中有302人需要在ICU接受治疗。在马萨诸塞州西部,大约有18%的非ICU病床可用。在全州范围内,大约有23%处于开放状态。

从周五开始,州长贝克将暂时中止可以选择推迟的住院择期手术。择期手术包括切除痣或切除肾结石。

Emergencies, preventative measures, or conditions that will significantly worsen if surgery is not performed, are not considered elective surgeries, 和 they will continue.

健康 和 Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders said this includes mammograms, colonoscopies, or regular pediatric checkups. 的 goal of this is to free up medical staff 和 beds so they can be prepared for more COVID patients.

除了刚刚在伍斯特(Worcester)开业的野战医院之外,另一家医院将于本月晚些时候在洛厄尔(Lowell)开业。
