Numbers at CCMH continue to rise exponentially – our previous all-time high of admitted COVID patients was 63, on January 4th of this year. We currently have 61 admitted, as of 8 AM this morning. We will likely set a new record today.
To help with overflow from the Emergency Department, a tent will be erected today. This Western Shelter tent is being provided by the Oklahoma State Health Department. We are grateful for the support from the state.
We continue to have numerous deaths. One of our youngest deaths recently was a 31 year old. We have seen over and over again that vaccination can be the difference between life and death. Vaccination is safe and effective for all approved populations.
