Blood shortage temporarily closes Torrance Hospital trauma center Thu, 13 Jan 2022 14:53:36 +0000

TORRANCE (CBSLA) – The nationwide blood shortage forced the temporary closure of the trauma center at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center earlier this week.

The hospital said on Wednesday it had been forced to close its trauma center to new patients for more than two hours on Monday due to the shortage.

A spokesperson for the hospital told the Los Angeles Times it needs to request blood from other hospitals before it can reopen. Harbor-UCLA is one of three public hospitals operated by the LA County Department of Health Services.

On Tuesday, the American Red Cross reported it was facing its worst blood shortage in more than a decade. The agency reported an overall drop of 10% in the number of blood donors, as well as a 62% drop in blood drives in schools and colleges.

The shortage is due to the outbreak of COVID-19 caused by the highly transmissible Omicron variant, combined with winter weather problems, according to Red Cross medical director Baia Lasky.

“Dangerously low blood supply levels pose a worrying risk to patient care and force doctors to make tough decisions about who gets blood transfusions and who will have to wait until more products become available,” wrote the Red Cross in a press release Tuesday.

Disruption of hospital services “could last a few weeks due to short, strong Omicron wave” Tue, 11 Jan 2022 09:14:00 +0000
Andy Kingdom, director of public health for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council public health director Andy Kingdom said disruptions could last for a few weeks as outbreaks of infections lead to staff isolation and more patients hospitalized.

He added that he hoped high vaccine booster doses would reduce the number of people needing hospital treatment, but more time was needed to study trends.

It comes as 6,385 new cases of coronavirus were recorded in the East Riding from Tuesday, December 28 to Monday, January 3, up from 3,364 cases the week before.

The mobile infection rate fell from 980 to 1,860 cases per 100,000 people during the same period.

Mr Kingdom said the increases were even larger among younger age groups, with the rate of working-age adults rising from around 500 to around 2,500 per 100,000.

He added that the rate for school-aged children had increased five to six times over the same period.

Mr Kingdom said: “We have seen a massive increase in infections.

“The question at the moment is whether these new cases turn into hospitalizations or death?

“I’m watching this very closely, as the hope is that having both the shots and the booster will reduce the likelihood of this by about 85%. We already know that having vaccines reduces the risk of people ending up in the hospital, but the problem is, it doesn’t stop people from passing the coronavirus to each other.

“This has consequences that we are seeing with the staff not only in hospitals but in all the sectors that support them, it is the pressure that is on the system right now. I expect this wave of infections to be short and sharp, but it could do a lot of damage.

“And the problem is, because it takes about a month between catching the coronavirus and needing hospital treatment in the worst cases, we won’t see the impact of the New Year’s increases until the end of January.

“There is also the problem of the scale of infections, if we get 1,000 new cases a day, even if only 2% of people get seriously ill, it will increase the number of hospital patients.

“The NHS has already been under pressure this winter and every coronavirus patient taking a bed is one less bed that can be given to someone coming to A&E for example.

“If someone becomes ill with the coronavirus, the ambulance that takes them to the hospital cannot be used to pick up someone who has just had a stroke or a fall.

“If you are not vaccinated now, the chances of you not catching the coronavirus are very slim due to the number of people around you who have it.

“And now it’s too late for preventative measures like a lockdown, because infections are already in households, it’s more about minimizing the damage at this point.

“The good news is that Omicron’s reign should be short because so many people are infected that the population will develop a level of immunity.

“And I’m confident that we have the vaccines in the right people here, I don’t think we’ll see the number of hospitalizations and deaths we’ve seen elsewhere like London.

“But that’s only the case for those who are vaccinated, I think some people haven’t because they don’t think Omicron is that dangerous.

“But it does, if you don’t get the vaccine and catch it you’ll get really sick, and Omicron probably accounts for up to 99% of new cases now.

“If you could go to intensive care units in hospitals, you would see beds full of unvaccinated people.

“We hear stories from them saying, ‘if I only knew’, but by then it’s too late.

“We hope the outbreak of infections doesn’t overlap too much with staff absences and public health and other agencies have been planning this since before Christmas.

“But people shouldn’t expect that they would normally be waiting for health services in the next few weeks, there is going to be disruption.”

COVID-19 update: British Columbia reports 7 deaths, 431 in hospital Tue, 11 Jan 2022 08:57:35 +0000

British Columbia has recorded seven more coronavirus-related deaths in the past 72 hours, the government said on Monday, along with a further significant increase in hospitalizations.

The health ministry said there are now 431 people hospitalized with COVID-19, an increase of 23% from Friday and 55% from last Monday.

That total includes 95 intensive care patients, a 16% increase from last Monday.

A further 6,995 cases of COVID-19 were also reported over the weekend, all but four of which were confirmed by PCR testing.

The latest figures brought the seven-day average of cases down to 2,810, down about 340 from Friday, although officials warned that the daily case count does not reflect the extent of transmission in the province due to testing capacity limitations.

The Omicron wave of COVID-19 cases has seen unprecedented levels of transmission that have left testing centers overwhelmed for weeks. In the meantime, people who are fully vaccinated, have mild symptoms, and are not considered to be at higher risk for serious illness have been advised to forgo testing and stay home until their symptoms subsided. improve.

Provincial health worker Dr Bonnie Henry said the actual number of new infections occurring daily could be up to five times higher than reported.

The percentage of tests positive for COVID-19 – another metric that reflects the spread of the virus – has skyrocketed over the past month. Only 3% of tests came back positive on December 10, compared to 23.8% on Friday.

The unvaccinated continue to be overrepresented among the province’s COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. Unvaccinated people accounted for 35.6% of hospitalizations between Dec. 24 and Jan. 6, according to the Department of Health, while this group represents less than 15% of the provincial population, including babies, toddlers. and others. children too young to be eligible for vaccination.

The unvaccinated were hospitalized at a rate of 35.5 patients per 100,000 population during this period, while those fully vaccinated were hospitalized at a rate of 5.3 percent per 100,000 population.

So far, 88.7 percent of eligible BC residents have received their first dose of the vaccine and 83.2 percent have received two. Almost 28% of adults also received a booster.

High levels of transmission have also triggered another wave of epidemics in healthcare facilities. There have been seven more since Friday, bringing the provincial total to 43 active outbreaks in these settings. As of December 22, there were none.

Covid-19: China punishes officials after miscarriage outside containment hospital – News Thu, 06 Jan 2022 06:50:18 +0000

The distressing incident was detailed in a post posted to social media by the woman’s niece on January 1.

Posted: Thu Jan 6, 2022, 10:50 AM

Chinese officials said on Thursday they punished authorities after images went viral of an eight-month-pregnant woman miscarrying in the locked city of Xi’an when a hospital refused entry without testing. Covid.

The city of 13 million inhabitants has been subject to strict home containment for two weeks to eradicate an epidemic, in accordance with Beijing’s strict “zero Covid” strategy.

The distressing incident was detailed in a post posted to social media by the woman’s niece on January 1, which included photos and video of the woman sitting on a plastic stool outside the hospital surrounded of a pool of blood.

The post was later deleted, but not before it garnered hundreds of millions of views and sparked widespread anger online at the hardships residents of Xi’an faced.

The city government said in a statement Thursday that the incident at the Xi’an Gaoxin hospital had caused “widespread concern and caused a detrimental social impact” and that the local health unit was investigating.

The director general of the hospital was suspended and the “managers” of the outpatient department were dismissed from their posts, he said.

The hospital was also ordered to “apologize to the public”.

Posted on the city government’s official WeChat account, the statement garnered nearly 600 million views within hours of publication, illustrating the huge interest the case has generated in China.


According to the January 1 post that went viral on the Twitter-like Weibo platform, staff refused to admit the heavily pregnant woman for two hours because she had not had a negative Covid test in the past 48 time.

Her niece wrote that her negative test result expired a few hours earlier.

AFP could not verify the mail and calls to the hospital went unanswered.

Officials told reporters on Wednesday that Xi’an was opening “green channels” to provide quick access to medical services to certain groups – such as pregnant women and patients with serious illnesses – without referring to the case.

The promise came as another woman from Xi’an said her father died on Monday after several hospitals refused to treat his heart disease “due to pandemic rules.”

In a social media post Thursday that has been viewed over 500 million times, she recounted driving for more than eight hours in search of a hospital as her father complained of severe chest pain.

After her final admission, “the doctor said the delay was too long,” she wrote.

It was not clear why hospitals had refused to admit the 61-year-old man.

The reports come after residents of Xi’an complained of limited access to food and essentials during the lockdown. The local government has promised to deliver supplies to those in need, but admitted some logistical issues.

Coronavirus cases in China remain very low by international standards. But in recent weeks, infections have reached a record high since March 2020.

There were 189 cases reported Thursday, including 63 in Xi’an.

Those who have failed to prevent virus outbreaks in China are often fired or punished.

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) – Governor Mike DeWine today addressed the surge in Covid-19 cases in Ohio and the pressure it is putting on our local hospitals.

He spoke to 19 News anchor Nichole Vrsansky in a 15-minute zoom interview: “It affects us all, whether it’s a loved one who has a heart attack or other reasons for it. going to the hospital, being overcrowded is not good. “

By Thursday, more than 2,000 members of the Ohio National Guard will be deployed to hospitals and vaccination sites across our state. A Statehouse News Bureau report states that only 53% of Ohio ranger members are vaccinated. Governor DeWine said despite this, the number deployed was not affected.

“We’re going to have that many. There are members who are deployed who are not vaccinated, and hospitals make those decisions about where to deploy them. We want everyone to be vaccinated. We would like all Ohio National Guardsmen to be vaccinated, ”says DeWine.

We showed him the new TV commercial that the local hospitals have teamed up on, the sounds of a patient on a ventilator as the words read: “Help.” We beg you. The governor says the message is clear, Ohioans need to be vaccinated, boosted, wear masks and respect social distancing.

“This is a very strong message from hospitals, and when you talk to nurses caring for Covid patients, the message is even more compelling. We see, especially in northeastern Ohio, in Cleveland, Akron, the Canton areas, our hospitals are literally overwhelmed, ”says DeWine.

In addition to this increase in Covid cases, businesses in Ohio are also grappling with labor shortages. Governor DeWine said every state in the country faces the same challenges.

“I don’t have a magic wand to solve the immediate problem, but we know what the answer to the long term challenge is, making sure we have trained workers and expertise, and that comes through education. . We need to invest in education.

We also spoke to the governor about the increase in violent crime rates in the state. He calls on state lawmakers to invest $ 250 million in state policing.

Regarding the upcoming elections and their impact on his decisions as governor, DeWine says, “People expect me to make decisions based on the best interests of the people of Ohio, not the best. political interests of Mike DeWine. It is a very serious period in our history. “

Bolsonaro’s doctor Antonio Macedo told reporters the president was recovered and ready to work, adding that he would be on a special diet over the weekend and would not be able to perform physical activities vigorous.

Bolsonaro, who has been in power since 2019 and plans to run for re-election in a presidential election scheduled for October, said he would maintain his regular schedule, including a trip to Russia in February.

He was on vacation in the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil when he was rushed to Vila Nova Star Hospital in Sao Paulo in the early hours of Monday after suffering from abdominal pain.

Doctors inserted a nasogastric tube and even considered surgery, but the obstruction was cleared on Tuesday.

A medical bulletin released Tuesday night said the president’s digestive tract was showing signs of recovery, that he was doing well on a liquid diet and that doctors had removed the nasogastric tube.

Bolsonaro has undergone a series of emergency surgeries since being stabbed in a campaign event in September 2018.

He said on Twitter Monday that he started to feel unwell on Sunday after lunch, noting that it was his second hospitalization “with the same symptoms” in a few months.

In July 2021, he was taken to the Vila Nova Star facility with a bowel blockage after suffering from chronic hiccups.

Macedo acknowledged that Bolsonaro could experience new intestinal obstruction in the future.
