Louisana Governor Warns That By The End Of April, The Healthcare System Could Collapse
Lousiana has now been classed as a major hotspot for the Coronavirus. In the last few days, the state has seen approximately 140 deaths. This puts Louisiana 3rd in the highest number of Coronavirus related deaths in the country.
The Governor of Louisiana appeared on ABC News recently, to discuss how the state is preparing for the expected spike of cases next month. Here’s what the Governor is predicting by April: “By the end of the first week in April, we think the first real issue is going to be ventilators. And we think it’s about the fourth or fifth of April before, down in the New Orleans area, we’re unable to put people on ventilators who need them. And then several days later, we will be out of beds.” Already across Europe, hospitals are now overcrowded, with many patients being treated on floors in hospitals.
