Governor Holcomb reacts to the increase in new COVID-19 cases due to the delta variant

He’s also urging schools to take every safety precaution possible so kids aren’t forced to return to remote learning. “I do hear and I do understand parents, students who are waiting until it becomes permanent,” Holcomb said of the emergency use authorization each of the vaccines has currently. “I would recommend taking every safe step possible, imaginable, doable to keep the kiddos in school,” Holcomb said. “We have seen what a whacking our kiddos have taken with the pandemic over this last year in terms of learning loss, etc. So we don’t want to watch the same movie again.”

Holcomb did not elaborate further on what those updates may include. When asked if he would require Indiana’s state employees to get vaccinated, Holcomb said, “I’m not leaning toward that, but obviously I’ve got some updates to make by probably the end of this week. And so we’re looking at what the CDC just put out maybe as we speak.”

Holcomb said he also hopes the vaccines get full FDA approval soon. “If this isn’t persuasive to get vaccinated, I don’t know what could be,” Holcomb said.

“North, East and South – all three are very tight right now,” Yeleti said. “What I’m worried about is that these patients staying in the hospital a lot longer, so they are taking more beds and more space, and that just makes it more difficult for other people with non-COVID issues to get into the hospital as well,” he explained. COVID-19 hospitalizations within Community Health Network are back at levels not seen since May, Dr. Yeleti said. It’s part of the reason some of the company’s hospitals are running at capacity, he added.

“The number of hospitalizations has doubled in the past two weeks or so,” Dr. Yeleti said. Community Health Network has already seen a significant surge in hospitalizations, according to Dr. Ram Yeleti, chief physician executive.
