  1. This “news” fails to accurately report how many ICU beds are being used by COVID patients vs. all others. It also fails to report how many beds are available in total in PBC (the numbers in the “article” don’t match or add up…622 hospitalized for COVID but then only reporting the ICU bed counts). Until a correction or clarification happens, this “article” is basically worthless information if it is intended to represent the effect of COVID on hospital occupancy. Please, don’t put out information that’s misleading and/or inaccurate, that’s neither news or journalism.
