Rising COVID19 Cases are Overwhelming Oklahoma HospitalsDespite Oklahoma being ranked top ten in terms of COVID-19 vaccinations, the fight against the coronavirus pandemic is still far from over. An article published on OKC FOX titled, "Oklahoma Hospitals Prepare to Ration Care as COVID-19 Cases Overwhelm" states that the spread of the coronavirus throughout Oklahoma is higher than it has ever seen since the start of the pandemic.

Although most states in the country are facing vaccine distribution hurdles, Oklahoma is ahead of schedule to offer vaccinations for people over the age of 65, according to Dr. Jean Hausheer, former President of the Oklahoma Medical Association. Nonetheless, the coronavirus is still rampant throughout the state, with no signs of slowing down.

The number of positive tests, deaths, and hospitalizations reached an all-time high, overwhelming hospitals beyond their breaking point. Transfers are nearly non-existent, and whenever an ICU bed is made available, it's occupied almost immediately. To free up space, Integris Health is starting to ration care. Many hospitals are following suit.

Even with Oklahoma ahead of schedule, only 3.5% of the population are receiving their doses. Doctors urge the public to do their part to combat the spread until there are sufficient vaccines made available for everyone.
