Kentucky’s crowded hospitals fear the worst as Covid-19’s federal assistance is scheduled to go out on Friday

Kentucky’s crowded hospitals fear the worst as Covid-19’s federal assistance is scheduled to go out on Friday

While the hospital is holding on by a thread, Melah assured the community St. Claire would not turn anyone away. “We will continue look for any other way we can help,” Beshear said. “We’re gonna have to… (I) don’t know what we’re going to do,” he said. “I really don’t feel like answering that question right now because it is so disturbing.”

An “army of nursing students” is also being sent all over the state, the governor said. “This is, I think, the largest deployment for a health care crisis in our commonwealth’s history,” Beshear said. “Every hospital that they go to not only talk about how it’s a morale boost, but it truly helps in the operation and it allows them to provide more care to more patients.”

At St. Claire, there are currently five EMS teams and one medical team from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Beshear said. Gov. Andy Beshear said during a Covid-19 briefing Monday that hospitals in Kentucky are “struggling more today than at any other point during the pandemic.” Because of this, Beshear said about 400 National Guard troops will be deployed across 25 hospitals in the state.

“They hear that from experts, they hear from politicians and from social media. And we’re not here to be angry with them,” Melah said. “There’s actually one enemy and only one thing to be angry about and that is coronavirus. That’s the real enemy. And we’re at war with coronavirus.” Melah also emphasized that medical workers are not angry at patients, but rather those who have manipulated them into thinking the vaccines aren’t safe or that they’re more dangerous than being infected with Covid-19.

As of Monday afternoon, Kentucky had more than 620,000 Covid-19 cases and more than 8,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Roughly 50% of the state’s population is vaccinated. Last week, the situation at St. Claire was so bad that some non-Covid patients were waiting 24 hours for care or until someone got better or died, Melah said.
