NEWS on COVID-19 in Mississippi: No ICU beds left in Mississippi as COVID-19 case levels continue to hit record highs
“The surge of COVID-19 cases in Mississippi has left no intensive care unit beds available across the state and prompted the need for restrictions, State Health Officer Dr. Thomas Dobbs said Friday.
Dobbs said in a Tweet that beginning Tuesday, all elective procedures that require hospitalization must be delayed statewide. The Mississippi Department of Health is also anticipating many more hospitalizations as the increase in cases continues.
Liz Sharlot, director of communications for the health department, said the order will go into effect Tuesday and last until Dec. 23. Procedures such as knee replacements and colonoscopies will be among those delayed, but things such as cancer treatments and trauma surgery will not.
According to data from the health department, at least 300 patients were confirmed to be in ICU beds across the state as of Wednesday. In the Jackson metro area, Dobbs has stated that there has been no bed availability for intensive care patients for several weeks.”
