“… something that I find really sad is that they require 100% oxygen, they can no longer get up and go use the restroom,” says a respiratory therapist. https://t.co/caHnxn1OwX pic.twitter.com/gISc0U6R8V “The most striking thing is just how young they are, they’re 30 years old, they’re 40 years old.”

— WAVY TV 10 (@WAVY_News) September 14, 2021 Officials said some hospitals are at capacity and the system is moving patients around to help. Health care workers said mostly all patients are not vaccinated and it’s striking to see how many are in their 30s or 40s.
