    LONDON (AP) — Britain’s National Health Service will from next week employ a little-used field hospital specially built at a huge exhibition center in east London in the early days of the pandemic last spring. NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens said Thursday that the pressures facing hospitals in London and the southeast of England are so acute that the Nightingale hospital at the ExCel London will be opened next week to inpatients. A few hundred beds for non-COVID patients are expected to be available at first.

    An anti-masker who believed the COVID-19 crisis was just a “political” stunt issued an emotional plea to skeptics from his hospital bed — after becoming seriously ill with the virus. In a Facebook video shared by a pal on Monday, Chuck Stacey gasps for breath as he admits he was wrong about the pandemic that’s killed 1.8 million globally.

    A Nevada hospital has resorted to treating coronavirus patients in its parking garage — as hospitalizations soar in the state. Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno converted two floors of its parking garage into an alternative care site in early November to handle an overflow of COVID-19 patients if necessary.

    Last night I was talking with my mom about her oxygen treatments. Then we were talking about if someone God forbid happens to either of us was our local hospital willing to accommodate us because of covid? I looked on the website and come across this. "Glenbrook has converted back into a COVID-only hospital within our system, meaning it is no longer taking patients in need of overnight care if they don’t have COVID-19. As the pandemic continues to evolve, we are experiencing an increase in the number of COVID patients hospitalized, in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and in...

    Many hospitals across the United States regularly operate with most of their beds taken by patients, limiting their ability to handle a sudden influx of folks sick with COVID-19, a new study reports. Only about 1 of every 3 U.S. hospital beds is empty on any given day, according to research from the Urban Institute, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. "All indications show if the curve is not flattened, hospitals across the country will not have the capacity to deal with the surge in hospitalizations associated with COVID-19," said study author Fredric Blavin, a principal research associate with...

    The Illinois Department of Public Health quietly removed thousands of available hospital beds from their data showing how much capacity Illinois’ medical centers have. The number of available hospital beds is closely tracked by the state as a barometer of how much stress the COVID-19 pandemic is placing on Illinois’ medical system. The state has more than 30,000 total general use hospital beds. The lower the number of free beds, the worse the COVID-19 pandemic is becoming. “We actually need to know how many beds are available that have staff that could actually work it,” Ezike said. “When you put...

    Provo-based Utah Valley Hospital is implementing new precautions after several conspiracy theorists attempted to sneak into the intensive care unit, reports NBC affiliate KSL-TV. Hospital administrator Kyle Hansen told the Provo City Council this week that five people questioning if the ICU was actually as full as the hospital claimed attempted to get inside, some with video cameras. It seems no one has successfully snuck in thus far. However, the conspiracy theorists have prompted the hospital to take extra precautions, said Mr. Hansen. "You really can only get in if you're here for an appointment yourself or you have to...

    With the state of Illinois seeing increases in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, Gov. J.B. Pritzker says there are no plans currently in place to turn Chicago’s McCormick Place into a field hospital to deal with a potential surge in patients. The convention center, which was prepared as an emergency field hospital earlier this year before being decommissioned when coronavirus cases and hospitalizations began to decrease, could still be used in that capacity in the future, but Pritzker says that advances in the treatment of coronavirus, and a better understanding of how the virus spreads, mean that the facility will not...

    My cousin who is a head nurse at a local hospital in Chicago suburbs gave me this info on covid. These are the text messages from her. Take her information as you wish. From what I've seen, there are very high false positive And negative rates. Also, if you test positive, then test again 3 days later and are all positive, that counts as 2 positives. What we can't dispute are the number of actual hospitalizations, which are definitely up in my area, but I'm very specious of anyone who has zero symptoms but comes up positive. The good news...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — One of Utah’s largest hospitals had no beds left Friday in its regular intensive-care unit as the governor declared the state's weekslong spike in coronavirus cases “unsustainable." The University of Utah Health had to set up extra ICU beds staffed by doctors and nurses working overtime to care for its critical patients this week as the unit hit 104% capacity, said Chief Medical Officer Dr. Russell Vinik.

    Yamina Chairman Naftali Bennett arrived at Tel Hashomer Hospital on Saturday, for the second time this week. On Tuesday, Bennett was hospitalized for a series of tests for neck pain, and was released the next day, after undergoing treatment under anesthesia. On Thursday he arrived at the Knesset and even spoke during the meeting about approving the agreement with the United Arab Emirates, but over the weekend his neck pain resumed and he returned for tests at the hospital. His office said: "Since his military service in the General Staff Reconnaissance Regiment, MK Bennett has been dealing with a back...

    The Department of Health and Human Services is threatening to withhold U.S. funding from hospitals that fail to comply with federal requirements on reporting data about Covid-19 and influenza patients, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma announced Tuesday. Verma said on a conference call with reporters that hospitals will be given 14 weeks to comply with the requirements before enforcement is implemented. She said federal officials will work with hospitals over that time to help bring them into compliance. “Because this requirement is in the Medicare conditions of participation, noncompliance could result in termination from both Medicare...

That would solve a lot of America’s problems.” The Washington County Board of Education, on which...

    While you don’t know for sure if President Donald Trump is behind it, somehow you just know he is.A peculiar thing happened Sunday night outside the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, hot pizzas kept showing up. By the dozens.  A throng of Trump supporters have been holding a vigil outside the facility since the president was admitted on Friday after testing positive for COVID-19, or as Trump is now calling it, the “plague from China.”According to one enthusiastic supporter, Domino’s pizzas were being delivered every 45 minutes to the crowd — 250 pies and counting.

    President Trump is not a basement guy. Sure, he could have done a Joe Biden and hidden in the White House the last five months, a president under quarantine cowering from the Chinese virus. The symbolism would have been disastrous for the mightiest nation on the planet. Trump had to show fearlessness in the face of the virus. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week called his refusal to kowtow to the coronavirus a “brazen invitation” to get sick. But, as the president told his old friend Rudy Giuliani, Saturday afternoon, he took the risks he had to take, because: “Great...

    BETHESDA, Md. — President Donald Trump declared, “I get it,” in a message to the nation Sunday evening before briefly leaving the hospital to salute cheering supporters from his motorcade, a surprising move that raised new questions about the president’s understanding of the coronavirus that has killed more than 209,000 Americans. “It’s been a very interesting journey. I learned a lot about COVID,” Trump said, standing in his hospital room in a video posted on social media. “I learned it by really going to school.” He added, “I get it, and I understand it.” Before the video was posted, the...

    The White House Correspondents Association on Sunday blasted President Trump's brief foray out of his hospital room to wave to supporters from an SUV, calling it "outrageous" and criticizing the lack of transparency around the photo op. "It is outrageous for the president to have left the hospital - even briefly - amid a health crisis without a protective pool present to ensure that the American people know where their president is and how he is doing," WHCA President Zeke Miller said in a statement. "Now more than ever, the American public deserves independent coverage of the president so they...
