Arizona is reporting a record number of patients in intensive care units (ICUs) who have or are suspected to have the coronavirus, announcing more than 10,000 new cases and 42 more deaths due to the virus on Sunday.
The Arizona Republic reported on Monday that 4,390 hospitalized COVID-19 patients were confirmed the day before, significantly higher than the peak of 3,517 observed in the summer. Some 1,007 suspected or confirmed COVID-19 patients were in ICUs, beating the previous record of 970 in July.
According to Arizona’s coronavirus data dashboard, 91 percent of ICU beds in the state are occupied and more than half by COVID-19 patients. There are currently fewer than 200 ICU beds and 1,000 non-ICU beds available, reports the Republic.
The teams sent by the state would assess the needs of hospitals in terms of staffing, personal protective gear, oxygen machines and ventilators.
“We’ve been able to take that information and are sending a new team embedded at LA County hospitals to encourage load leveling and greater coordination,” said Newsom, meaning that hospitals will work together to transfer patients from those most severely impacted to those with fewer demands.
Newsom said the impacts to hospitals will begin to be seen among patients receiving care for non-COVID related issues. Across the state 86 hospitals were granted staffing waivers, but those changes have consequences that could result in care that’s below the quality patients typically enjoy. Those impacts can eventually lead to unnecessary deaths even for those people who might be at the hospital for reasons unrelated to COVID-19.
“Hot cross buns, hot cross buns, one a penny, two a penny, hot cross buns”
Who wouldn’t have grown up singing this rhyme.. We all have 😀
Hot cross buns have rich history and traditionally eaten on Good Friday but now available round the year in parts of Europe, USA, Africa, India, Australia, Canada and more. They have a sweet, bit spicy and tangy flavor.
So, here is my attempt in making them (the recipe may differ a bit from the traditional one) after searching tonnes of recipes.
So, join me and sing “hot cross buns” while we make it. 🙂
