California’s coronavirus hot zone: Hospitals full, ambulances diverted, patients moved out (Los Angeles Times)

Los Angeles Times: California’s coronavirus hot zone: Hospitals full, ambulances diverted, patients moved out. “The San Joaquin Valley, the Sacramento area and rural Northern California are now the regions of the state being hit the hardest by COVID-19 hospitalizations on a per capita basis, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis. The regions have lower vaccination rates than in the highly populated coastal areas of Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area. The worst may not be over. According to COVID-19 computer models published by the state Department of Public Health, the number of patients in intensive care units in the San Joaquin Valley is expected to increase for the rest of September, and hundreds more people could be dead by the end of the month.”
