Dr. David Kimberlin, co-director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Alabama, talks with Rachel Maddow about the bleak outlook for the projected growth in hospitalizations of Covid patients in his state, which is already running out of space, and what external resources may be brought on to accommodate the overflow, in the video published on Aug. 20, 2021, “‘We May Be Looking At A Collapse Of Our Health Care System’: Alabama Doctors Sounds Alarm“, below:
Alabama is calling for FEMA staff assistance. Dr. David Kimberlin, Chair in Pediatric Infectious Disease at the University of Alabama at Birmingham and co-director of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at the University of Alabama, believes that there may be a collapse of healthcare system in Alabama, with negative ICU beds available for adult and pediatric. Today, Alabama surpasses Florida in terms of rates of pediatric hospitalization with COVID. In Mobile, AL, there was no ambulances available. Alabama is in need of federal assistance to obtain resources needed. People need to be vaccinated and masked.
