‘No ICU beds left’: Massachusetts hospitals are maxed out as COVID continues to surge (WGBH)

WGBH: ‘No ICU beds left’: Massachusetts hospitals are maxed out as COVID continues to surge. “The state reported more than 31,000 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, which includes tests taken over the long holiday weekend. On Tuesday, the state added nearly 17,000 more confirmed cases to that tally. Last winter, the seven-day average of new confirmed cases peaked at about 6,000. Experts say although the now-dominant omicron variant appears to result in less severe illness than earlier variants, the sheer number of new cases is overwhelming the capacity of the state’s hospitals.”
