Extension of the home order – Deadline

Southern California will continue in regional stay-at-home order “until ICU projections are 15% or greater,” the Secretary of Health and Human Services said today. social workers, Dr. Mark Ghaly.

Currently, as hospitals divert care and patients are placed in hallways and elsewhere, LA County and the rest of Southern California have 0% critical care capacity.

First announced by Gov. Gavin Newsom in early December, as the Thanksgiving fallout became increasingly apparent, Southern California’s semi-lockdown expiration period will continue until January 16.

The state will review the decision and relevant virus data daily over the next few weeks to determine whether the restrictions need to be further extended, Ghaly said Tuesday. If the numbers change, the stay-at-home order could be lifted early – not that the near future looks bright.

Widely anticipated with the increase in COVID cases and deaths crippling the Golden State’s healthcare system, the latest extension of the Newsom government’s relief measure could prove to be a tragic case of too little, too late. Even as LA County public health officials edged out the state on Dec. 27 and extended the region’s stay-at-home order indefinitely, hospitals in the region are reduced to zero intensive care unit beds and lack of space and staff.

“We are preparing to see what levels of transmissions we expect to see coming out of these celebrations,” the CHH chief noted wearily of a post-Christmas surge expected in the coming weeks at this “difficult time.” Dr Ghaly has also moved forward to New Years Eve and has repeatedly tried to warn Californians to resist the desire to see 2012 with traditional celebrations. “Things that a month or two ago were low risk activity today are really high risks because of the level of Covid circulating in our communities,” he said bluntly.

“More than 95% of Los Angeles hospitals have been hijacked in the last 24 hours,” the HHS secretary said in what is likely his last briefing of 2020. “All of these trends tell me… that we need to keep going. working to prepare for the next wave of vacation cases early next year, ”he continued. “And these likely projections that by mid-January we will see a significantly higher number of cases than we have today of people with Covid who need care at the hospital level.”

“Hospitals are understaffed, have to use rooms they don’t typically use,” Dr Ghlay said on Tuesday of the situation in Los Angeles and the downstate. “Preoperative beds are used to serve Covid patients,” he added, continuing to raise the specter of “impending rationing of some supplies and staff, and not all patients are receiving the standard of attention that we normally hope “in the surge

“You can usually stretch most rubber bands quite far enough because we stretch our hospitals far enough,” said the state’s senior physician. “Some hospitals will have to resort to crisis care.”

With California sadly serving as the epicenter of the nationwide coronavirus crisis, California reported 31,245 new cases today and 242 new deaths. This is an increase of 1.4% and 1% from Monday, bringing a total of 2.9 million confirmed cases and just under 25,000 deaths in America’s most populous state. While these high measures are shocking, the state has actually seen Covid cases decline a bit over the past week.

As vaccines are increasingly distributed in the Golden State, California also saw 245,955 tests performed today. Marked by long queues at most testing centers and clinics, this new number is an increase of 0.8% from yesterday’s totals and sees 32.4 million tests administered in a state of ‘about 38 million citizens.
