The United States reported a record one-day spike of 126,400 new cases of the coronavirus as medical experts warn that the outbreak is worsening across the country and could lead to a devastating winter.
In El Paso, Texas, County Judge Ricardo Samaniego ordered the closure of all nonessential businesses as hospitals there were beginning to get overwhelmed by the rise in Covid-19 patients.
Remote health systems in these areas might find themselves more easily overwhelmed by an influx of Covid-19 patients than medical centers in big cities, Peterson said.
She added that while doctors have learned a lot about how to effectively treat Covid-19 patients, that doesn't mean every doctor is equipped to do so.
Not to mention, doctors and nurses are increasingly exhausted by the relentless surge of new Covid-19 patients, she added.
