WVU MEDICINE PREPARING FOR SURGE

As the number of COVID-19 cases climb, WVU Medicine is working on a preparedness plan.  WVU Medicine President and CEO Albert Wright says they are watching the trends closely, but his best advice remains that everyone needs to get the vaccine.  Hospitalizations are up from 57 to 178 in the past 30 days.  There are 64 ICU beds being used, and 25 of those patients are on ventilators.
