Even As Vaccine Is Rolled Out Texas Covid Hospitalizations Still High

More than a million Texans have now received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, but hospitals are still running near capacity. The Department of State Health Services says 1.1 million people have received their first dose of the vaccine, and 167-thousand are fully immunized, but COVID-19 patients are still using about 21 percent of hospital beds. UT Southwestern Doctor Robert Fine says hospitals have added ICU space, and doctors are already handling more patients than usual. The Dallas County Medical Society’s Mark Casanova says hospitals have plans if they have to ration care. Hospitals across Texas had 13,278 COVID-19 patients Sunday.
